Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip have gone into self-quarantine as the coronavirus continues to spread globally at a rapid pace

Her Majesty and Prince Phillip will be in self-quarantine in Windsor Castle.

When the virus first began to spread, Queen Elizabeth took to wearing gloves during events, but as the crisis escalates, the queen along with other members of the royal family, have decided to self-quarantine.

The Queen issued a statement on the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in the UK as she arrived at Windsor for a period of isolation with Prince Philip, on Thursday.

She says: "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. 

According to the Independent, the queen is understood to be in good health and expected to remain in Windsor until after the Easter holiday.
