The Buckingham Palace: Queen Elizabeth II infected with the Coronavirus

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for COVID-19, Buckingham Palace announced on Sunday, adding that she has mild symptoms and is expected to continue some simple tasks this week.

“The result of the Queen’s tests came positive,” the palace said.

Her Majesty has mild cold-like symptoms and is expected to continue minor duties at Windsor Castle this week.

“She’ll continue to receive medical attention and will follow all appropriate instructions,” he added.

The heir to the throne, Prince Charles, 73, withdrew from an event earlier this month after contracting Coronavirus for the second time.

A source in the palace said that he had met the queen only days before her.

It highlights the health of the Queen, the world’s oldest and longest-reigning monarch since she spent a night in a hospital in October with an unspecified illness and her doctors advised her to rest.

As she made her first personal engagement since Charles tested positive for Covid, Elizabeth teased members of the royal family on Wednesday that she couldn’t move much.
