Her Majesty left Buckingham Palace last month and is currently staying at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip in the wake of the dangerously spreading coronavirus epidemic throughout the UK. Now the Queen’s second residence, Windsor Castle, has been lit in blue to show support for the NHS.

The comforting gesture was scheduled to coincide with the #ClapForOurCarers weekly round of applause.

The weekly applause saw thousands of people standing at their doors and windows at 8 p.m. to show their appreciation for our medical staff for the second week in a row.

This comes a week after the publication of a video showing applause from the royal house, where the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh are staying during the lockdown.

The monarch also sent a comforting message to the workers who helped build the new NHS Nightingale hospital in London.
