The Queen is expected to reiterate her message that we’re all in this together on Sunday when she addresses the nation from her luxury sterile Queen Pod in geostationary orbit 22,000 miles above Buckingham Palace.

It’s believed Her Majesty was launched into space on Tuesday from a secret base in Hampshire used only during national emergencies. She was apparently sprayed with bleach before being placed inside the solid gold capsule and fired to safety.

The Queen has previously said that the Royal Family is ready to play its part in helping the country through the coronavirus crisis.

It’s understood that Prince Charles, self-isolating on a private beach in Bermuda with his wife Camilla, is ready to appear via video link at any time to open flagship hospitals or morgues. The Duke of Edinburgh will also be placed on standby to look concerned from a safe distance.

Prince William and his wife Prince William’s Wife have announced they will both be waving from home this coming week, but will join the Queen at space church over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, though not performing royal duties, will launch a range of Harry and Meghan branded COVID-19 t-shirts on Monday featuring the slogan “Coronavirus world tour 2020”.
