Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip have relocated to Windsor Castle to self-isolate. While they remain at the Berkshire property, several of the royal residences are closed for the public. But, later this week, one of Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family's properties, reportedly, reopened for public usage.
Signs have become apparent that the lockdown has started to ease its restrictions, according to Hello! magazine. This is why it is not surprising that some parts of the Sandringham Estate have opened its doors.
As per the publication, the West Car Park of the Sandringham Country Park is now open from 8 in the morning until 6 in the evening. In the 243-hectare site, individuals from the community can now exercise and visit the park.
However, the reopening of the area entails the strict observation of social distancing guidelines. As stated, the park, along with its management, will "monitor" the number of visitors and cars that will enter the premises.
If need be, restrictions to enter the site will also be imposed. As pointed out, the reopening of the West Car Park will follow a "gradual" and "phased" process to continue the security and safety of the public against the novel coronavirus.
The announcement, however, also came with a notice that the rest of the site will remain close "until further notice." These, reportedly, include the Sandringham House, Transport Museum, formal gardens, gift shops, and cafés.
In a similar report released by Express UK, it was said that while West Car Park is now open, most of Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family's residences will also remain close for public tours and views "throughout the summer." These residences include the Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Frogmore House.
As for those who have already purchased tickets for these tours, reports also said that these will all be refunded. It remains unknown until when these residences will remain close. But, many are certain that new notices and announcements will be given at the end of the summer season.
In the case of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, the royal couple will, reportedly, stay behind Windsor Castle's door. It is also undisclosed when they will return to Buckingham Palace and Sandringham Estate, respectively.
The same is also true for the rest of the British Royal Family. But, as the lockdown measures continue in the United Kingdom, members of the family have been repeatedly praised for their efforts and hard-work despite the need to stay indoors.
