On Thursday, for the very first time, Queen Elizabeth II attended a video conference call to speak with carers of COVID-19 and discuss how they have been coping. The 94-year-old monarch logged in from Windsor Castle where she has been staying during COVID-19 outbreak.
“Interesting listening to all your tales and stories,” she said.
“I’m very glad to have been able to join you today.”
The 69-year-old Princess Anne also joined the meeting with her mother for an engagement which marked a nationwide week of events highlighting the work of people who care for relatives and friends with a disability, mental or physical illness.
Alexandra Atkins was very happy seeing the royals on the call and described it to be “just unreal”
“It hit me that I was sitting in my bedroom talking to the Princess Royal (Anne) and the queen,” she said. The queen has always been very interested in new technology. Her very first mail reached most people from a computer at a British Army base in 1976.
She sent her first email long before most people, from a computer at a British Army base in 1976.
