If the government still do not realize the seriousness of the situation, the danger we put vulnerable people in and then the burden we put on hospitals, then at least royals could show good example at social distancing and working from home. Now they send opposite message - its okay, safe to meet people in person, no need to keep distance. The court showed photos that its possible to work from home and held virtual meetings. What changed now? Is the situation suddenly back to normal? And Daniel tag along like he has no health issues
It was very sad, irresponsible and lousy example to expose a person from a risk group. Some a** boss may now ask - if Daniel show up in person, then why another risk group person should stay at home? Very dissapointed in Vic and Dan
But the members of any Royal Family cannot go against the government of their country, the government is the one who makes the decisions, we saw it already in three countries, in Spain King Felipe could not go out to speak until his government reached an agreement of how they were going to do things, the country had already been in "State of Alarm" for days and he could not speak because it was not his decision, and for those of us who know his speeches, we could see that when he spoke he was repeating the words of the government in previous days. And today he is visiting IFEMA, the place where a hospital for coronavirus patients was built, today King Philip is visiting a hospital for coronavirus patients... it's crazy!
In the UK we saw how the Royal Family continued with their activities normally until their government decided to take action, then they communicated that they were suspending everything and that the Queen was moving to Windsor.
Now in Sweden we see how their government continues to maintain a certain normality in daily life, the restaurants, pubs... are open, the children continue to attend their schools every day, this means that we are going to see the Royal Family until the Swedish government says that everybody stays at home, just like it happened in the UK.
All last week they had meetings from home, by video calls or by phone, but just this Tuesday there was a meeting between the King, the Queen, Victoria, Daniel and the court staff to plan upcoming activities and programs, I don't think it is a coincidence that these activities scheduled for Tuesday coincide with their government's statements that they are not taking any more serious measures at the moment.
P.S.: I completely agree that it is irresponsible to leave, especially Daniel, I am from Spain and I can see on the front line the damage that the coronavirus does if adequate measures are not taken, but I cannot blame the members of the royalty for the inability of their governments to take those measures.
