It seems like royal fans have every reason to be concerned about Queen Elizabeth’s health, especially after a statement had been released suggesting that the queen might need a little more than just some royal rest and relaxation. It was announced earlier in the week that Queen Elizabeth had tested positive for COVID-19 but would continue to take on her engagements virtually while in isolation. However, a new statement suggests that the queen’s “mild symptoms” might be more than just that as she has canceled her virtual engagements and will be taking on “light duties” instead. Here’s what you need to know.
Royal Fans Concerned Over Latest Statement About Queen Elizabeth’s Health
The palace announced Sunday that the 95-year-old monarch had contracted the virus. Yet it seems like her handlers would rather not have her on camera right now. “As Her Majesty is still experiencing mild cold-like symptoms she has decided not to undertake her planned virtual engagements today, but will continue with light duties,” the palace said.
That said, Queen Elizabeth has held engagements since Charles tested positive, meeting Defense Services Secretary Major General Eldon Millar, and his predecessor Rear Admiral James Macleod at Windsor Castle just last week.
It’s been noted that symptoms for COVID-19 can appear from two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. It’s not known whether or not the Queen has contracted the virus from her son Charles or someone else behind the scenes at Windsor Castle. Soon after it was announced that Charles had tested positive for the virus, he canceled all of his royal engagements in his calendar. Camilla had also gone into isolation the moment that she found out that she had tested positive, too. Prince William had tested positive for the virus back in March 2020.
