Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are now self-isolating in Scotland after having to postpone their upcoming royal tour of Bosnia, Herzegovina, Cyprus, and Jordan due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A palace insider has revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have left England for the time being, and are spending time at the Balmoral estate in Scotland acording to Bazaar.com. A palace aide recently confirmed that Charles and Camilla have left London for the forseeable future.

The Duke and duchess are both in their seventies and therefore are more at risk of having complications should they catch the coronavirus.

Instead of jetting off, the couple made the sensible decision to celebrate Mother’s Day in the UK.

On Sunday, the couple shared a throwback photo of the queen with Charles.

They wrote on Instagram, “Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day, particularly in a year when families may not be able to be together.

Just weeks ago it looked as though the tour would go ahead.

A Clarence House spokesman previously said the royals would continue to monitor the situation and consult with the Government.

However, cases across Britain have skyrocketed over the past few weeks.

There are now 5,72 confirmed cases in the UK and a death toll of 282.

The army have been drafted in to organise food and medicine deliveries in an extraordinary move to protect 1.5 million of the most vulnerable from the deadly coronavirus outbreak.

Boris Johnson said the drastic measure was needed to help “shield” the most at-risk people who should now stay at home for 12 weeks.

The dramatic intervention came as the Prime Minister gave the public a final warning to take social distancing measures seriously otherwise he will place the UK into lockdown within 24 hours.

Her majesty has now scaled back her work and has published a statement about the rising coronavirus crisis in the UK.

She has now urged Britons across the country to play their “vitally important” roles as coronavirus grips the UK.

The Queen’s statement reads: “As Philip and I arrive at Windsor today, we know that many individuals and families across the United Kingdom, and around the world, are entering a period of great concern and uncertainty.

“We are all being advised to change our normal routines and regular patterns of life for the greater good of the communities we live in and, in particular, to protect the most vulnerable within them.

“At times such as these, I am reminded that our nation’s history has been forged by people and communities coming together to work as one, concentrating our combined efforts with a focus on the common goal.

“We are enormously thankful for the expertise and commitment of our scientists, medical practitioners and emergency and public services; but now more than any time in our recent past, we all have a vitally important part to play as individuals – today and in the coming days, weeks and months.

“Many of us will need to find new ways of staying in touch with each other and making sure that loved ones are safe. I am certain we are up to that challenge.

“You can be assured that my family and I stand ready to play our part.”
