According to a statement released by Buckingham Palace, the Queen has cancelled all her public events for the next two months and has decided to leave London. The statement asserted that the changes in the queen’s schedule were made "as a sensible precaution and for practical reasons in the current circumstances."

“Her Majesty will move to Windsor Castle for the Easter period on Thursday 19 March, one week earlier than planned.
