“Buckingham Palace confirm that the queen has today tested positive for Covid,” the palace said in a statement. “Her Majesty is experiencing mild coldlike 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.”

Ten days ago, Prince Charles, the 73-year-old heir to the British throne, tested positive for coronavirus for a second time, and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, confirmed Monday she had the virus.

Queen Elizbeth had been in contact with her eldest son and heir.

Her grandson Prince William, who is second in line to the throne, tested positive for Covid-19 in 2020, though his infection wasn’t revealed until months later.

On Feb. 6, she reached her Platinum Jubilee at her country estate, Sandringham.

The day earlier, she carried out her first major public engagement for more than three months. She met charity workers at Sandringham House.

She had her first vaccine in January 2021 and it has not been released whether she received a second dose and a booster. BBC reported it is believed she has all her followup jabs.

Prince Philip, the 99-year-old duke of Edinburgh, also was vaccinated, and he died April 9, after entering King Edward VII’s Hospital on Feb. 16. He underwent an unspecified heart procedure March 4 for a pre-existing condition.
