Queen Elizabeth makes 1st public appearance since lockdown, masks nowhere to be seen

Global News published this video item, entitled “Queen Elizabeth makes 1st public appearance since lockdown, masks nowhere to be seen” – below is their description.

Queen Elizabeth carried out her first major engagement since a coronavirus lockdown in March, visiting the Porton Down military research facility in Wiltshire, England on Thursday which was involved in dealing with a 2018 Novichok nerve agent attack. For her first public outing, she made a rare joint appearance with her grandson Prince William, with neither wearing face masks although all involved were socially distanced in an indoor setting. The formal purpose of the trip was to open the lab’s new Energetics Analysis Centre, where the queen and the prince were given a demonstration of a forensic explosives investigation. The 94-year-old monarch, who spent Britain’s national lockdown at Windsor Castle, has usually carried out her official duties remotely by video or telephone, or at her palace, since social restrictions were introduced. Since March, the queen’s only public appearances have been at Windsor for a military ceremony in June to mark her birthday, and for a ceremony to knight record-breaking charity fundraiser, 100-year-old Captain Tom Moore.
