The Mirror reports that the Royal Task Force aims to extend the presence of The Firm in the absence of the monarch.

A source told the publication, “There are going to be many more interactions between family members during the crisis.

“His Majesty has given instructions that after an eventful period for the family last year, now is the time to heal and have a united front and return to the basic principles of the monarchy – his only conviction is that it goes back to the basics of duty. “

Sophie, who has been named the Queen’s favorite, and Edward are said to be in regular contact with Prince Charles and Prince William in an effort to keep The Firm running.

Charles was already responsible for opening the Nightingale Hospital in London via video link while Sophie volunteered to prepare lunches for NHS staff.

It comes after The Sun revealed that the Queen could never return to royal office.

The 94-year-old monarch is locked up in Windsor Castle to prevent him from catching the coronavirus.

Courtiers are already preparing to keep her indoors until at least after summer – the longest absence from office during her 68-year reign.

It is understood that Her Majesty does not want to slow down or stop working. But she will not oppose any official advice intended to protect people of her age category.

The Queen receives updates from Parliament through her red boxes and during a weekly call with Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

But courtiers discuss problems with returning to work on the front line and normal engagements amidst the risk of catching the virus.

As such, they are preparing for several months of royal foreclosure.

And royal biographer Andrew Morton is concerned that it is unlikely that the Queen will be allowed to resume her normal public duties.

He believes that the British are only likely to see her on television or video links – as with her recent moving addresses.

Trooping the Color, summer garden parties and a state visit to South Africa have all been canceled – emptying his journal until the fall.
