Queen Elizabeth Tests Positive for Covid-19 at her 95 and is suffering moderate symptoms, although Buckingham Palace stated on Sunday that she expected to undertake modest activities this week.
“The queen tested positive for Covid today,” the Palace said. “Her Majesty is suffering from minor cold-like symptoms, but she intends to resume light activities at Windsor next week.” The Palace said, “She will continue to get medical treatment and will follow all relevant protocols.”
Charles, the heir to the throne, walked out of an event earlier this month after getting coronavirus for the second time. According to a royal insider, he just met the queen a few days prior. The queen’s health has been in the limelight since she spent a night in hospital in October for an unidentified sickness and was subsequently recommended to rest by her physicians.
As she carried out her first in-person engagement since Charles tested positive, Elizabeth joked to members of the royal household that she couldn’t move much. It should be noted that both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip received the Covid-19 vaccine.
Queen Elizabeth II COVID-19 symptoms
According to Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II has postponed planned internet engagements on Tuesday because she is still feeling mild cold-like symptoms after testing positive for COVID-19, which she contracted last week.
An official from the palace said that the 95-year-old queen “has opted not to participate in her scheduled virtual engagements today, but will continue with light responsibilities.”
COVID-19 was detected in the queen, according to officials, who verified the finding on Sunday. The diagnosis elicited expressions of worry and well-wishes from across the political spectrum in the United Kingdom, where the queen is the country’s longest-reigning monarch.
After receiving all of her vaccinations and a booster injection, the palace said that Elizabeth will continue with “light” responsibilities at Windsor Castle for the next week. Elizabeth has been completely vaccinated and has received a booster dose.
COVID-19 was contracted by the queen’s oldest son, Prince Charles, 73, and her daughter-in-law, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 74, early this month, according to the royal family. Charles has subsequently returned to his previous job. It is also believed that numerous recent viral cases have been reported among the employees at Windsor Castle, where the queen is now residing.
When a person tests positive for COVID in the United Kingdom, they must self-isolate for five days. This is a limitation that the British government hopes to abolish this week for people in England.
According to palace statements, the queen spent a night in the hospital in October for undisclosed “preliminary investigations” and subsequently she “regretfully” missed two additional highly anticipated in-person appearances due to physicians’ recommendations.
Queen Elizabeth II exhibits symptoms of a cold
Her next two weeks were spent recuperating at Windsor Castle, where she has spent the most of her time since the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic in the spring of 2020. She managed to keep up with “minimal, desk-based responsibilities.”
On February 6, the queen celebrated 70 years on the throne. On that day in 1952, her father, King George VI, passed away at Sandringham, the monarch’s residence in Norfolk, after lung cancer surgery. She was formally crowned queen the following year.
To mark the occasion, the palace released a new portrait of the queen, which shows her with a broad smile and dressed in a pale green gown, sitting in front of one of her red dispatch boxes, which contains official government documents, and with a portrait of her father by her side, according to the palace.
Queen Elizabeth || before Covid-19 positive
The day prior, Elizabeth hosted a low-key event in the ballroom of Sandringham for residents and volunteer organizations, during which she cut a cake with the Platinum Jubilee symbol on it. Photos from the party show her laughing, joking, and exposed. She is wearing a light blue dress with daisies embroidered at the waist, pearls, and what seems to be a platinum double flower brooch, according to the photos. She sliced the cake with a walking cane in one hand and her ever-present black pocketbook over her arm in the other.
Her long reign will be commemorated with a four-day Platinum Jubilee of celebrations, parades, and pageants, which will begin on June 2 and last through June 4, when the weather is (typically) more pleasant.
On March 2, the queen will host a diplomatic reception at Windsor Castle, followed by the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 14. The queen will also attend a number of other in-person events in the coming weeks. In honor of her late husband, Prince Philip, who died in April 2021 at the age of 99, she will attend a ceremony at Westminster on March 29.
A note of thanks was released by the queen on the night of the anniversary of her accession, and she stated for the first time that it is her “sincere desire” that Duchess Camilla of Cornwall be referred to as “Queen Consort” when Prince Charles succeeds her as monarch.
“And when, in due course, my son Charles succeeds to the throne, I am certain that you will extend to him and his wife Camilla the same generosity that you have shown to me,” she said in her greeting, according to a statement released by Buckingham Palace. I really hope that, when the time comes, Camilla will be referred to as Queen Consort, as she continues her own dedicated devotion to the monarchy.”
Her announcement about Camilla brought some closure to the long-running debate over what to call the former Camilla Parker Bowles, who was once so controversial for allegedly severing Charles’ marriage to the late Princess Diana that she used the Duchess of Cornwall title rather than the Princess of Wales title at the time.
Queen Elizabeth Tests Positive for Covid-19
The jubilee of the queen comes amid a succession of personal challenges for the monarch. In an out-of-court settlement with accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was sex trafficked to the prince by convicted billionaire Jeffrey Epstein when she was 17, the Queen’s son, Prince Andrew, reached a settlement with the accuser last week. After fiercely disputing the charges, Andrew agreed to pay an unknown amount of money and make a donation to Giuffre’s foundation in favor of the victim’s rights in exchange for an undisclosed payment.
He was 73 years old when he died last spring, right in the midst of an epidemic that had ravaged the country for months. Because of COVID’s strict social distance restrictions, she was compelled to sit alone throughout the burial ceremony, which was a moving sight for others who had already experienced sorrow.
