Everyone was tested for Covid BEFORE this event and they were socially distancing therefore no masks were required. The Queen and William were negative as were the people they met.

Just because you test negative doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have the virus. Why wouldn’t you take the utmost precautions when dealing with a 94 year old woman? Not to mention the message it sends to the public.

This only makes sense if the Queen herself doesn’t want to be seen wearing a mask.

What she is saying is the rich don't have to deal with the virus like the poor people. If you get it, you won't have access to top notch treatments so you could get extremely sick, die, or get long covid where you are sick for many months with no end in sight. Not the Queen, she gets antibodies and will be fine.

As Coronavirus cases rise in England, London’s Twitter account just sent out this advisory:

Porton Down is/was the UK Government biological/germ warfare facility, the place is as near to sterile as you can get and everybody there would have been tested for everything (several times) before her visit.

It wasn't a standard 'Royal Visit' by any description.

At a time when the U.K. government is still struggling to get everyone to wear masks, why wouldn’t she use this as an opportunity to set an example? Especially if she rarely has public engagements to begin with. It’s the responsible thing to do, and she obviously decided against it.

Personally, yes, I think the Queen should have worn a mask, however everyone at this site was tested for COVID using rapid testing. And social distancing was maintained.

BTW the Queen will likely not wear a mask ever. The Queen has always refused to wear a helmet when she goes horseback riding, even though it is now technically the law in the UK.

I am happy to see the Queen out and about again, because it's very reassuring. That being said, yeah, she should have set an example and wore a mask, at least for the indoor portion of the visit.

by Anonymousreply 2910/15/2020

Just to clarify, the entire event was outdoors were masks are not required. All participants maintained social distance. Royals including William, Catherine, Charles and Camilla have all worn masks at indoor engagements but not outdoors...in fact, Camilla was not wearing a mask during an indoor visit in North Ireland last week. I hope that if the Queen returns to indoor visits she'll wear a mask.

r24 Rapid testing is not that accurate. I had it in the ER some months ago, they told me if you are positive with a rapid test then that's that. But if you are negative, they take a deeper swab and send it out because the rapid tests aren't that sensitive.

by Anonymousreply 3210/15/2020

I love the Queen BUT this whole pandemic raises the question of how logical it is to have a 94 year old as head of state. Yes, the Queen is robust and although she looks like she's lost weight, she'll probably make it past 100. The reality is, she is no longer able to perform certain aspects of the job. For example, she no longer goes on state visits abroad (one of the key roles of the monarch), state opening of parliaments are now less frequent because of mobility limitations. She can't climb stairs any more. Don't get me wrong I love her, but I really think we need to start talking about abdication like other European monarchies have done.

by Anonymousreply 3310/15/2020

Ahem, we don't abdicate, we regent as required.

[QUOTE] Just to clarify, the entire event was outdoors were masks are not required.

She likes rocking those trendy hats, though, right? Are they required? Is there anything that says the Queen must always look like a black lady going to First Ebenezer Baptist on Sunday? Nope. So why couldn’t she sport a matching cloth facemask even if there’s no mandate for it? She’s fully aware of what’s going on in her country.

by Anonymousreply 4310/15/2020

Yea I thought it would have been a nice example for her to set by wearing a mask but maybe it's medically correct that the circumstances didn't warrant it. The problem is people are too dumb to realize they are not the queen with all the security and protection she has - like no one is getting close to her. You on the other hand can't be sure when someone will get close to you when you're just walking down the street or running on the sidewalk. I also wonder if she has a harder time breathing in them?

I'm still SMH over people who vacationed all over Europe this summer and into the early fall as if there was no risk and as if that didn't contribute to Europe's terrible second wave and lock downs. All those UKers who traveled to Europe and then returned home and visited pubs. What were they thinking. As if they just couldn't NOT have a vacation away from home for one fucking year.

Disappointing. She could have worn a mask to show solidarity with the poor plebs who have to wear one all day long. Is nobody willing to lead by example in our world ?

Every time I see a picture of her with her mouth open, I wonder why she never had her teeth fixed, we know the old gal can afford it, and clearly she thinks looking nice is important from the way she dresses.

R46 Yes, she looked noticeably older today. I live in Sweden (our country's reaction to COVID has been highly controversial and the country is evenly divided about it) and Queen Silvia (who is the Queen Consort here) gave an interview yesterday and admitted that being forced to stay home and not go out on her usual rounds of engagements made her feel her age (she's 77 I think). I imagine Queen Elizabeth felt the same way. She is someone use to always being on the go and for the last seven months she has been forced to stay home. That lack of purpose and activity probably aged her, made her feel old.

Charles already survived a mild case, his wife didn't even get it. Everyone really needs to get real.

If the government thought she and William were in danger for a nanosecond, she and the Duke would have been prevented from doing it. You have to know she cleared it with Whitehall first.
