Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has tested positive for Covid.
The monarch is suffering from “mild cold-like symptoms”. But the palace said he plans to continue doing “light duties” at Windsor for the next week.
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines,” the statement continued.
The Prince of Wales, her eldest son, and heir, tested positive on February 10. As he met his mother on February 8.
In March 2020, the Prince of Wales got coronavirus for the first time, as countries throughout the world began to experience the consequences of the epidemic. Charles said he was fortunate to just have minimal symptoms when he was first afflicted, adding that he’d “gotten away with it fairly lightly.”
At Windsor Castle, where the Queen resides, it is believed that many people have tested positive.
The Queen sent a congratulatory message to the Team GB Curling teams later on Sunday, according to the Palace.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson wished the queen by saying “sure I speak for everyone in wishing Her Majesty The Queen a swift recovery from Covid and a rapid return to vibrant good health”.
The positive result comes just days before England is all ready to abolish the remaining virus restrictions. This week they are removing the legal requirement for anyone who catches Covid to self-isolate.
First In-Person Engagement Held By Queen
The Queen met with charity workers at Sandringham House for the first time in almost three months on the eve of her Platinum Jubilee. The eve which will commemorate her 70 years on the throne on February 6.
The Queen, who will turn 96 in April, claimed to have received her first vaccination in January 2021. And all of her future immunizations as well.
On Tuesday, the Queen held her first formal engagement since meeting Prince Charles. It was a virtual meeting with two new ambassadors to the United Kingdom.
During this meet with defense personnel the next day, she grinned as she mentioned she had mobility issues. “Well, as you can see, I can’t move,” she remarked, standing with a walking stick and pointing to her left leg.
