LONDON (AP) – Queen Elizabeth II publicly donated a face mask during the Coronavirus epidemic for the first time while attending a brief ceremony in Westminster Abbey last week to mark the centenary of the burial of an unknown warrior.
While the 94-year-old emperor has been seen in public on several occasions over the past few months, he was not pictured covering the face until now.
On Wednesday, during his first public engagement since March in London, he wore a black mask that was edged with white. Photos of the ceremony were officially released late Saturday.
Dean of Westminster Drs. “It was wonderful to see Her Majesty for such good spirits and good health,” said David Hoyle. “We talked about Shatabdi and Abe’s life. This is where she was married and she was aware of those associations. “
The brief service consisted only of the Dean and Queen, Lt Col Nana Kofi Twumasi-Ankara. From November 1947 the queen left a bouquet of orchids and myrtle on the basis of her wedding bouquet. He bowed his head after praying to Dean.
The queen was requested to hold a ceremony as the eponymous plans derailed for the centenary of the intervention of an unknown warrior.
The tomb is the last resting place of an unknown British soldier who was killed during World War I. His body was retrieved from northern France and buried on 11 November 1920 in Westminster Abbey.
The ceremony took place a day before the four-week lockdown took effect in England. To close an array of businesses, places of worship are being forced to operate within limits.
In some indoor settings such as public transport, shops, and places of worship, law requires that the face be covered. The British government also recommends that they be worn in indoor places where social disturbances can be difficult and where people come into contact with people they do not normally meet.
Other members of the royal family have been regularly seen covering the face during the epidemic. The queen was criticized for not wearing a queen last month when she visited the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory in Porton Down, southern England, along with her grandson Prince William.
The Queen took the opportunity during her rare visit to London to visit Buckingham Palace, her official residence in the capital.
Before Britain was completely shut down on 23 March, the Queen and her 99-year-old husband, Prince Philip, moved to Windsor Castle, which is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) west of London.
