Queen Elizabeth II tests Covid positive; Prince Charles, wife had tested positive few days before

The Queen has tested positive for Covid, Buckingham Palace has said, according to BBC.

The monarch is experiencing “mild cold-like symptoms” but expects to continue “light duties” at Windsor over the coming week, the palace said.

“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines,” it added in a statement.

A few days ago, her daughter-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall had tested positive for COVID-19, four days after her husband Prince Charles was confirmed to be infected with the coronavirus.

The couple’s office Clarence House said Camilla was self-isolating. Charles has been isolating since he tested positive, but Camilla had continued with public engagements while taking daily tests. Both Charles, 73, and 74-year-old Camilla are triple-vaccinated.

The queen, who reached the milestone of 70 years on the throne on Feb. 6, marked her Platinum Jubilee by expressing her wish for Camilla to be known as Queen Consort when Charles becomes king.

Later on Sunday, the Palace issued a congratulatory message from the Queen to the Team GB Curling teams.

The Queen, who will be 96 in April, had her first vaccine in January 2021 and is believed to have had all her follow-up jabs after that.
