Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for COVID-19 as she resides in the Buckingham Palace.

The Coronavirus spread through the whole Royal Palace as the  95-year-old Queen is the third royal after her son Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall to test positive in recent weeks.

The palace revealed that she has mild cold-like symptoms and is self isolating.

“Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week,” the Palace said in a press statement. “She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all appropriate guidelines.”

Speculation over the Queen’s health grew as members of the royal house realized that she could not move as easily. Prior to contract, Queen Elizabeth had been in contact with her son Prince Charles the day before he tested positive for COVID-19 for a second time.

Until the Sunday of February 20, 2022, it appeared that the royal family had successfully managed to keep precent themselves from contracting COVID  out of the confines of Windsor Castle, where Her Majesty had been sheltering from the virus for much of the past two years.

“There’s a difference between being alone and being lonely,” says the palace insider. Factor in even mild symptoms of COVID, and it “must be hard,” adds the insider. “Whatever the symptoms, when you’re feeling below par, having to deal with the other problems is really hard.”

However, the Queen remains resolute even in the midst of difficult times. The Queen “is stoical and mentally strong,” adds the insider.

Queen Elizabeth will be 96 in April.
