Queen Elizabeth, 94 has just tested positive to Coronavirus.
News of the Queen testing positive for COVID-19 does not come as a surprise since there was a possibility that she could have been exposed by the virus during one of her weekly meetings with Prime Minister Boris Johnson who tested positive an hour ago, according to UCR.
Royal Palace confirms Queen Elizabeth tests positive for coronavirus.
Buckingham Palace revealed the monarch held a face-to-face with Mr. Johnson on March 11.
Her health, the palace added, remains good and stable though she has shown mild symptoms of the novel coronavirus.
A royal aide at Buckingham Palace had tested positive for the coronavirus while Queen Elizabeth II was still at her London residence.
The 93-year-old monarch shifted out of the palace to Windsor Castle indefinitely on Thursday as a “precaution” after all her engagements were cancelled and reports are that she was healthy.
She may have contacted it from her.
The aide, who has not been named, is believed to have taken ill and tested positive for the deadly virus earlier last week.
Buckingham Palace has declined to comment on the reports but said that it was taking all necessary steps in light of the advisory in place for the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been rapidly spreading in the UK as the death toll rose to 233 on Saturday.
The Queen, who turns 94 on April 21, is set to be based at Windsor Castle in south-east England with her 98-year-old husband Prince Philip for an extended period following consultation with her medical experts and the UK government.
