In not-so-shocking news, Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for Covid-19, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace this Sunday. The news come 10 days after Prince Charles tested positive, and about a week after Camilla did as well.
According to the statement, the 95-year-old monarch is experiencing mild “cold-like” symptoms and will continue with light duties.
Charles had met with his mother shortly before testing positive, but the Queen resumed official duties five days ago. Charles’ wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, also tested positive on February 14.
The queen this year is celebrating her 70th year on the British throne following the death of her father King George VI. Official celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee are due in June.
Elizabeth has received three doses of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to the British press, although her vaccine status has not been confirmed by Buckingham Palace. EFE
