Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh have returned to Windsor Castle together ahead of England’s second national lockdown, Buckingham Palace have confirmed.

The Queen and Prince Philip left Sandringham House in Norfolk, England on Monday following Boris Johnson’s surprise lockdown announcement on Halloween.

Buckingham Palace have said the couple have now returned to Windsor Castle, and will remain there for the duration of the second lockdown, which begins on November 5 and ends on December 2.

It is understood the couple will be cared for by HMS Bubble, the nickname for their reduced household of staff during the previous lockdown.

Prince Philip and the Queen spent six long months at their Berkshire residence earlier this year, shielding from the virus, as they watched Prince Charles and Prince William get struck down by Covid-19.

The Prime Minister was forced to implement the lockdown after being shown concerning NHS and SAGE transmission statistics that suggest the second coronavirus wave could be worse than the first.
