Most public facilities are closed in the UK due to the country’s blockade, but people are allowed to practice and socialize outside, leading many to seek quiet public spaces if nature calls during a day.
“Disappointed that I see so many handkerchiefs being dumped on the property today. Next to trails and monuments. Remember that there are no public toilets open for miles around at this time,” Balmoral staff wrote.
“Part of the problem is that we see a lot of non-biodegradable wipes being dumped in the open,” they added. “Also, people choose to relieve themselves right next to busy paths or monuments instead of moving a little further to avoid infection.”
But the castle acknowledged that people may need to be relieved by walking around the royal estate.
“If you have to pee, make it at least 30 feet from lakes or streams,” they added in a tweet on Sunday. “If you have to defecate, make it as far away from buildings, paths, rivers and farm animals as possible. Bury the feces in a shallow hole and replace the lawn.”
The queen and family members spend several weeks each year on the 50,000-acre estate in the Scottish Highlands.
He has spent most of Britain’s lock on another royal estate in Windsor, near London.
