Even though Queen Elizabeth, who was diagnosed with COVID-19 on February 20, had to cancel some virtual appointments on Thursday, February 24, it seems like she is doing the best she can, considering the circumstances.
Earlier this week, the palace revealed that the Queen would still be taking on some tasks. So much so, she met with Prime Minister Boris Johnson for their virtual weekly meeting on February 23. But one day later, the palace announced she would be resting again.
Despite not feeling her best, it seems like the matriarch is determined to carry on.
“Of course, she has a team of doctors to lean on whenever needed and a support staff that’s second to none,” a source explained. “But thus far Her Majesty has been handling this without any fuss or need to involve too many others in her recovery.”
“She’s showed extraordinary courage and is thankful for all the love and support she’s received, and as long as she feels able to work that’s what she’ll continue to [do],” the source added. “It’s typical of her selfless character and everyone is just in awe of her resolve and bravery. She’s truly one of a kind and an example to everyone around her.”
Robert Jobson believes that the Queen will come out on top.
"There is no doubt The Prince of Wales and his family will be concerned by this development and won’t be complacent. Charles often spends longer at Windsor Castle when he visits these days, so that he can enjoy quality time with his mother," the expert noted. "Kate, Duchess of Cambridge flies to Copenhagen this week for a series of solo engagements. If there was a serious cause for concern, I am sure that overseas visit would have been postponed."
