Buckingham Palace is making a number of changes to Queen Elizabeth’s schedule “as a sensible precaution and for practical reasons in the current circumstances,” according to a statement Tuesday.

Several events “with large numbers of people due to have been attended by The Queen, and other Members of the Royal Family” have been canceled or postponed.                                                                     

“The annual Maundy Service at St George’s Chapel on 9th April will not go ahead. Three Garden Parties hosted by The Queen, due to be held at Buckingham Palace in May, will now not take place. Guests already invited to these Garden Parties will be asked to attend in 2021. Two additional Garden Parties given for the Not Forgotten Association and the National Trust will also not take place. Investitures will be rearranged to later dates,” the statement said.

The Queen will moved to Windsor Castle for the Easter period on Thursday — a week earlier than scheduled. She’ll stay there until after Easter, the statement said.
