UK Queen tests positive for Covid
The Queen has tested positive for Covid-19, ahead of the expected ending of all coronavirus restrictions in England in the coming days.
Buckingham Palace said the monarch, 95, was experiencing “mild cold-like symptoms” but expected to continue carrying out light duties this week.
It was confirmed she had been in direct contact with her eldest son and heir, the Prince of Wales, the week he had the virus, while a number of cases have also been reported at her Windsor Castle home.
The Queen is one of just 25,696 confirmed Covid cases in the UK over the past 24 hours. How unlucky!
