Prince Philip was flown to Windsor by helicopter from Wood Farm in Sandringham in Norfolk. It’s been business as usual for the Queen as she receives her daily government red boxes.

Charles and the Queen at Birkhall in 2009

Clarence House confirmed that Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday, and while his wife Camilla has been given the all-clear, the pair have been self-isolating at their Scottish home, Birkhall, on the Queen's Balmoral estate. Charles inherited the 18th century property from the Queen Mother, when she died in 2002, and often spends summers there with Camilla. The couple even spent their honeymoon there in 2005, so it holds fond memories for them.
