Britain’s 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth II tested positive for Covid-19 on Sunday but the palace confirmed that her symptoms are ‘’Mild’’
Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Sunday that the British monarch will continue to perform light duties at her Windsor Castle residence.
The statement read; “Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week. She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines”.
British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has wished Queen Elizabeth a quick recovery.
“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”, Johnson said on Twitter.

The news comes after Prince Charles, the queen’s eldest son and heir, tested positive on February 10, two days after meeting his mother at Windsor.
The report says no information was given then on whether Queen Elizabeth had herself taken a test. She resumed in-person audiences at the castle last week but complained to one attendee of suffering from stiffness.
While normally secretive about the queen’s health, the palace has previously confirmed that she is fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
