Queen Elizabeth Recovers From COVID-19

Queen Elizabeth Recovers From COVID-19.

Following her illness with Covid, Queen Elizabeth II resumed public appearances on Tuesday, with her son and heir Prince Charles claiming she is “a lot better.”

Since Elizabeth tested positive on February 20, concerns about the 95-year-old monarch’s health have grown, overshadowing the commencement of her record-breaking 70th year on the throne.

But, according to a royal statement, she was now healthy enough to receive the new ambassadors of Andorra and Chad from her home at Windsor Castle.

The queen postponed similar scheduled encounters with new ambassadors last week because she was suffering from “mild” Covid symptoms.

Due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a diplomatic event she was scheduled to attend on Wednesday this week was canceled on the suggestion of Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.

Buckingham Palace has stated that it would not provide a continuous update on the Queen’s health, but news that she is returning to her responsibilities will be welcomed.

A member of the public inquired about Charles’ mother’s health during a walkabout in Southend-on-Sea, east of London.

“He said, ‘she’s a lot better now — it was very mild’,” admin worker Janice Jacom, 64, told reporters afterwards.

“It’s extremely concerning because the queen is getting on a little,” she said, “but I think she’s just beautiful.”

As the pandemic hit in early 2020, Charles got Covid and tested positive again on February 10 this year, two days after his final meeting with his mother.

Camilla, his wife, was diagnosed with the virus on February 14.

‘Light responsibilities’ – Following a night in hospital following undisclosed tests in October last year, the queen was compelled to ease down on medical advice and postpone a string of engagements.

She hosted international leaders at the UN climate change meeting in Glasgow last November, although she canceled the traditional Remembrance Sunday service and the Church of England’s General Synod due to a back injury.

When she has appeared in public, she has seemed feeble and has used a walking stick. She mentioned to one audience last month that she was suffering mobility issues.

Buckingham Palace has stated several times that she is performing “light tasks,” which are understood to include reviewing government policies and other official documents.

On March 14, she will attend the Commonwealth Ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London, and on March 29, she will attend a memorial service for her late husband, Prince Philip.

The Duke of Edinburgh died in April 2021 at the age of 99. The couple had been married for 73 years when they passed away.

On February 6, the queen became the first monarch in British history to rule for 70 years, and public festivities are scheduled for early June to honor the occasion.

In the following weeks, senior members of the royal family will travel to eight of the 14 Commonwealth nations where she is both queen and head of state.
