The Queen of England Elizabeth II has tested positive for COVID and is experiencing mild symptoms.
Buckingham Palace made the announcement in a statement on Sunday.
“The queen has today tested positive for COVID,” the Palace said.
“Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week.”
This news comes after the British monarch was reported to have spent time with Prince Charles on February 8, after he hosted an investiture at her Windsor Castle home. Prince Charles, who has been infected twice, tested positive for COVID a few days later but has made a quick recovery to full health.
After Prince Charles’ diagnosis, People reported that the queen’s health will continue to be monitored, but the palace will not provide regular updates on the matter.
On Wednesday, the monarch held in-person meetings with the outgoing Defence Services Secretary Rear Admiral James Macleod and his replacement, Major General Eldon Millar, at Windsor Castle, where she was spotted without a mask for the gathering.
This new development comes as Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce the scrapping of all remaining COVID-19 restrictions in England tomorrow, including the legal mandate to isolate after a positive test.
