With the coronavirus pandemic impacting nearly every single corner of the globe, no one is exempt from taking precautionary public health (and personally protective) measures—not even royals! While many cities are currently still encouraging and enforcing stay-at-home and social distancing measures, other regions are beginning to open up, and public appearances at private or limited-attendance events are slowly on the rise. Over the past few weeks, some royals have been spotted out and about in protective face masks. Here are ones who are setting a good example.
