The Queen’s only daughter, Princess Anne, turns 70 this weekend, and pre-pandemic, there was a slate of celebrations (including a party at Buckingham Palace) lined up in her honor. But like so many marking special occasions during this difficult time, the Princess Royal has had to alter her plans.

“There were plans which are going to have to change, but I’m sure we’ll find a way to get together as a family in the appropriate moment,” Anne’s son-in-law Mike Tindall said during an interview with Good Morning Britain. “But I think from their perspective, it’s all about the Queen and having her bubble.”

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip recently moved from Windsor Castle, where they had been social distancing since the early days of the COVID-19 crisis, to Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

“It’s been different for this whole period in terms of where people would normally move up to Balmoral and have their holiday up there. There’s changes around that,” he continued. “It’s more just about protecting one another, but that’s the same for any family wherever you are. All you’re thinking about it making sure you protect one another and come through the other side of this as strong as you can.”

Tindall also spoke about the Sussexes during the interview, and his cousin-in-law Prince Harry’s decision to step away from his role in the royal family, and their new home in Santa Barbara.

“They’re busy doing what they’re doing, and I just want them to be happy with what they’re doing and be happy with each other,” he said.

“He’s stressed that it’s all about his family, so you’ve got to support him through that.”
