The Queen has donned gloves for the first time at an investiture since she began her duties in 1952 amid coronavirus outbreak.
The UK Government warned people to cover their hands as the death rate for people infected is increases among the elderly.
The gloves she wore during the ceremony were much longer than the ones she normally wore when out.
However, Prince William and Kate didn’t wear gloves as they started their three-day trip to Ireland this afternoon. Prince Charles was also gloveless at a Royal College of Music event.
Queen wore gloves when she shakes hand with butterfly star Wendy Craig and gave her CBE in a ceremony. PM Boris Johnson revealed the plan to tackle the outbreak of coronavirus.
“The COVID-19 action plan states that among those who become infected, some will exhibit no symptoms and others will have a ‘mild-to-moderate self-limiting illness”.
“As it is a new virus, the lack of immunity in the population (and the absence as yet of an effective vaccine) means that Covid 19 has the potential to spread extensively,” the document says.
