Buckingham Palace said Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for COVID-19, making her the third member of the royal family to be diagnosed with the virus this month.
“Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week,” Buckingham Palace said on Sunday.
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines,” the Buckingham Palace added.
Sources said the 95-year-old British monarch’s eldest son, Prince Charles, was the first member of the Royal Family to test positive for COVID-19 on Feb. 10.
Charles’ wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, also tested positive for the virus last week.
According to reports, Charles, 73, and Camilla, 74, started self-isolating after their positive tests.
The queen, Charles, and Camilla are each believed to be fully vaccinated.
Based on the latest data from John Hopkins University, the United Kingdom has had more than 18 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, and more than 161,000 deaths from the virus.
