La reina Isabel II pasa su cumpleaños 94 aislada y con nostalgia

Este 21 de abril, la monarca británica celebró con memorias de su infancia.

Debido a la pandemia de COVID-19, la reina Isabel optó por cancelar las festividades relacionadas con su cumpleaños 94 y permaneció confinada en el Castillo de Windsor donde, haciendo uso de la tecnología, sostuvo una videollamada vía Zoom con sus cuatro hijos, nietos y bisnietos.

Además, a través de las redes sociales de la familia real se difundió un video con momentos entrañables de la entonces princesa Elizabeth en su niñez acompañada de su familia, incluida su hermana menor, la princesa Margaret.

Igualmente, fue compartida una receta especial por parte de los chefs de la Pastelería Real para hornear cupcakes de chocolate en honor a la reina y dedicada a quienes celebran una fecha especial en medio del aislamiento por el coronavirus.
