Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom carried out her first public engagement since Britain's Coronavirus lockdown in March, as she stepped out on Thursday, October 14, without a face mask despite the UK's Covid-19 social distancing rules.



 

The UK government advises people to wear a face-covering in indoor places where "social distancing may be difficult and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet."


The 94-year-old UK leader was joined by her grandson Prince William (who was also without a mask) on a visit to the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down, southwest England. 

 

They adhered to social distancing guidelines though.




Buckingham Palace said that the Queen decided not to wear a mask after consulting her own doctors at the Porton Down military research facility, which is providing vital support to the United Kingdom's Covid-19 pandemic response.

The monarch, who spent the national lockdown at Windsor Castle with her husband, Prince Philip, has been carrying out her official duties online.
