The silence from Our Royal Household cannot have escaped Our Peasantry, and We wish to make some explanation, which We dare not hope will stand in as amends.

In the fear which has arisen as this terrible contagion has swept across Our dominion, We, sheltering in place as all of you (though perhaps rather more comfortably, living in the palace and whatnot), have felt ourselves, it is true, a bit down. We wondered if stupid play-acting was appropriate in such a time.

We have decided, and do hereby make it a decree: now know all ye by these presents, that play-acting is exactly what the hell is needed in such a time; that if there is not fact play, and acting, and all manner of mummery and foolish games, that we - the human and not the Royal we - will go right off our rockers; and that therefore all such shall commence At Once, and be maintained until further notice.

Therefore We adjure our subjects, that blootfabbing, and flarming, and whatever the hell else you peasants do when nobody's looking, shall commence without further delay, that you shall kill a sheep, and possibly cook a rinjr, and feast, declaring yourselves thereby Our right loyal peasantry, and maybe even partake of a little bit of whatever might be sold at the Royal Fine Wines and Good Spirits dispensary near you, because why not. Tell them We sent you.

Keep Calm and Carry On; We do so declare.

Much love to all,
Your Queen
