The 94-year-old British Queen, Queen Elizabeth the second wore a facemask earlier this week for the first time during her Remembrance Sunday visit to the Westminster Abbey.

The Queen laid flowers on the tomb of the Unknown Warrior on the 100th anniversary of the warrior’s burial. This was the Queen’s first public event since she left the Buckingham Palace in March to stay in Windsor Palace.

Despite the fact that Queen Elizabeth visited the UK’s national security laboratory last month with Prince William while neither of them wore a facemask, the Buckingham Palace confirmed that all the necessary COVID-19 precautionary measures are indeed place applied.


The Royal Family gathered at the Cenotaph to mark the Remembrance Sunday in a socially distanced event with the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine and the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla stood on separate balconies that are 2 meters away from each other.

Prince Harry also marked the day from LA through a military podcast where he talked about how important serving in the military was for him.

It is noteworthy that this year’s Remembrance Sunday was significantly smaller than the previous events due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
