Even the absence of a pandemic cannot prevent Queen Elizabeth II from fulfilling her royal duties.
Traditionally, the monarch distributes silver coins called “Maundy Gift” on the Thursday before Easter every year to reward outstanding citizens.
Coins are usually issued at Westminster Abbey to recognize the faith of the recipient, but now the coronavirus pandemic has prevented the event for two consecutive years.
Elizabeth, 94, sent the coin a sweet note to the payee this year instead of giving it to them in person as usual.
