Here is a transcript of their message:
Unto the People of the Kingdom of the East do We, Queen Margarita, Prince Tindal, and Prince Alberic, send greetings.
Margarita: We wish it to be known that the health and safety of the people of our Kingdom, who we dearly love, is paramount. In this time of uncertainty and distress, we would do nothing to increase your discomfort or put you and yours at risk.
Tindal: If is for this reason, and with heavy hearts, we are announcing that the Kingdom of the East will be postponing or cancelling all events through the month of June. We will be evaluating the safety of any gatherings on a rolling basis, and will decide about future months as information becomes clear.
Alberic: This, unfortunately, includes our plan to hold the Mudthaw court, Coronation, and Crown Tournament at War of the Roses.
Tindall: We have consulted with the Kingdom Seneschal, and all of us agree that the continued compliance with CDC recommendations and social distancing will be best for everyone.
Alberic: Please continue to make use of available technologies to hold virtual gatherings, teach online, and stay in touch with your friends and family.
Margarita: The recent Ethereal Court was the first, and we intend to continue to check-in and interact with the Kingdom every-other week. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with the names of people who have brightened your day, or otherwise acted in a manner that brought some joy or comfort in these crazy times.
Tindall: We look forward to being able to stand together with you again in the real world. Until then, please be kind, be loving, and take care of one another.
Alberic: Know that we miss you, but want to see you stay healthy and safe as best you can.
Margarita: The Kingdom of the East is mighty, and its people are steadfast, clever, generous, and amazing. We will get through this together by keeping apart. Know that we will gather together, hold and attend events when it is safer to do so.
We remain, in Service to the Kingdom of the East,
