Buckingham Palace revealed that Queen Elizabeth II was diagnosed with Corona on Sunday.
“The 95-year-old sovereign — who is celebrating her 70th year on the throne — is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week,” they said.
The Palace added, “She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all appropriate guidelines,”
However, reports indicate that she is vaccinated. According to the Palace, Elizabeth, and her deceased spouse, were vaccinated early this year. The Palace refused to share any more information on the issue.
A royal source said that the queen isn’t the only one in her group to be diagnosed with COVID-19. “A number of cases have been diagnosed in the Windsor Castle team,” said the source. However, the source did not mention any specific person who tested positive in the queen’s circle.
Doctors have been closely monitoring her health since last year when she stopped attending public events following doctors’ advice to rest after spending a night in a hospital. The reason for her admission to the hospital remains undisclosed.
The queen was scheduled to appear at major events, meetings, and engagements from the march. Some engagements include “Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 14 and a Thanksgiving service for Prince Philip at the same venue on March 29”. She was only engaging over video calls.
Boris Johnson, British prime minister, is among the people who have wished her a quick recovery. He wrote “swift recovery” in his Twitter post.
“I’m sure I speak for everyone in wishing Her Majesty The Queen a swift recovery from Covid and a rapid return to vibrant good health,” he added.
The prime minister tested positive for COVID-19 in march 2020 during the first. He was admitted to the ICU for three days.
