The footman, who saw the Regent on a daily basis, was responsible for serving Queen Elizabeth II her meals and was in charge of her mails.

Prince Charles, the Queen's son, tested positive for coronavirus, surprisingly his wife, Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles has tested negative.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also put himself under self-quarantine after he tested positive for the coronavirus.

The coronavirus poses a grave risk to the 93-year-old Queen and her husband Prince Philip as the virus is found to affect the elderly more as they don't have as strong an immune system, which makes them vulnerable to infectious disease.

Besides that, the elderly like to have conditions such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes or kidney disease, which weaken their body's ability to fight infectious disease.

The Queen reportedly moved out of the Buckingham Palace to the Windsor Castle and is said to have reduced her staff.
