The Queen's COVID-19 recovery continues as Buckingham Palace has announced she's postponing her virtual engagements for the second time in a week.
- The Queen's COVID recovery is still ongoing as Palace officials announce she's stepping back from virtual events this week.
- Despite fans' concerns following the announcement, a spokesperson for Her Majesty has said she's only suffering 'mild, cold-like' symptoms.
- In other Royal news, Prince Philip was ‘incensed’ over Queen’s refusal to condemn Diana.
After news broke that the Queen has COVID-19, fans immediately had grave concerns. Following the diagnosis, world leaders sent heartfelt messages to the Queen—wishing her a fast and full recovery.
Initially, Buckingham Palace claimed that she would, "continue light duties at Windsor." Since then, however, the Queen missed an important meeting with the Prime Minister owing to symptoms caused by the virus.
However, following an announcement from Palace officials, it's now been revealed that she's to miss a second set of engagements.
An official statement read, "The two virtual audiences that had previously been scheduled to take place today will now be rescheduled for a later date. Her Majesty is continuing with light duties. No other engagements are scheduled for this week."
Despite her malaise, Her Majesty issued a statement in support of Great Britain at the Winter Olympics 2022. Her message, following the gold medal win of the women's curling team, received countless comments from loyal fans who are concerned for her well-being.
The second in line to the throne, the Prince of Wales has stepped out for his second royal engagement since recovering from COVID-19 for the second time. Shortly after his diagnosis, Duchess Camilla tested positive for the virus and entered a period of self-isolation.
Although the monarch hasn't spoken out directly from Windsor Castle, according to officials she's only suffering 'mild, cold-like' symptoms. In light of this reassuring news, many maintain hope for a speedy recovery.
