Queen avoids handshakes at Buckingham Palace reception amid UK coronavirus outbreak

The Queen avoided shaking hands while hosting a reception at Buckingham Palace amid the global coronavirus outbreak.

There were no handshakes from the Monarch as she held an audience at the palace today.

The monarch greeted Sri Lankan High Commissioner Saroja Sirisena and her husband Dr Sudath Talpahewa in the 1844 room of her royal residence.

She was not wearing gloves, but unlike her audiences last week, there was no handshaking during the brief meeting earlier.

Saroja Sirisena handed over her credentials which the Queen received, and Dr Talpahewa bowed to the head of state from a distance as he was introduced.

Last Tuesday, the Queen wore gloves as she handed out MBEs, OBEs and knighthoods for the first time in more than 60 years.
