The monarch, 95, tested positive for the virus and is experiencing “mild cold-like symptoms,” but expects to return to work this week on “light duties.”
The Queen has become ill after it was revealed that she had had direct contact with her eldest son and heir, the Prince of Wales, during the week he was infected with the disease.
The shocking announcement came just weeks after the country’s longest-reigning monarch celebrated her historic Platinum Jubilee of 70 years on the throne on February 6.

“Buckingham Palace confirms that The Queen has today tested positive for Covid,” said Buckingham Palace in a statement.
“Her Majesty is suffering from mild cold-like symptoms but expects to resume light duties at Windsor over the next week.”
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will adhere to all applicable guidelines.”
Concern for the Queen will be at an all-time high, given her advanced age, recent health scares, and popularity in a country where many people have never known another monarch on the throne.
The Royal Household has its own royal physicians, and the Queen’s doctors will be present to care for and monitor the head of state, with Professor Sir Huw Thomas, head of the Medical Household and Physician to the Queen, expected to be in command.
The Queen confirmed in January 2021 that she and her late husband, Prince Philip, had received their first doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. However, the palace has refused to reveal any information about subsequent vaccinations, citing medical confidentiality.
The Queen’s positive Coronavirus test comes just weeks after she became the UK’s longest reigning monarch, celebrating her Platinum Jubilee of 70 years on February 6.
According to the BBC, the Queen met with charity workers at Sandringham House on the eve of her Jubilee, her first major public engagement in more than three months.
