It took the coronavirus to show the world a slice of the home of Queen Elizabeth II of England. In these days made of expectations and tensions related to Coronavirus, Queen Elizabeth II who, during her long reign, has learned to dose perfectly authority and self-irony understanding that she is so much an institutional reference point when a “pop” icon , has decided this time to give us a beautiful photo that reveals his living room to the world for the first time. To reveal it is the last post published by the Instagram profile of the Royal Family. A photograph that represents the telephone conversation between His Majesty and Boris Johnson, two top authorities who “confront” each other for the management of the Covid-19 emergency, but also an opportunity to take a look in the Queen’s Windsor lounge.
A quintessence of full British style between ceramic corgi, equestrian trophies, floral tapestries and lampshades with fringes. Then there is the phone they were using: old school, white and thick. You can’t see the buttons, but we like to assume they’re probably big and sturdy (or maybe even rotating).
A peaceful photo that conveys a feeling of domestic peace that is so much needed. Especially after the news that his son Carlo tested positive at Covid-19.
