Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for COVID-19 a little over a week after her son Prince Charles—but will carry on working with the virus.
The 95-year-old monarch, who has been vaccinated, is experiencing mild symptoms and will be in contact with her medical team, the palace said.
It comes 10 days after Prince Charles tested positive for COVID on February 10. He had seen his mother days earlier.
A statement, released to Newsweek, read: “Buckingham Palace confirm that The Queen has today tested positive for COVID.
“Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week.
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines.”
The infection is the latest blow for Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee year after Prince Andrew settled a Jeffrey Epstein-related lawsuit in which he was accused of rape.
Prince Harry is also suing the British Government over the decision to remove his police protection on visits to the U.K.
