Up and about! Queen Elizabeth had some meetings and appointments on Wednesday, February 23, just a few days after she tested positive for COVID-19, Buckingham Palace confirmed.
The 95-year-old held her regularly scheduled meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and she will hold two more virtual appointments on Thursday, February 24.
On Tuesday, February 22, it was announced the Queen was under the weather and would be resting for the time being.
"As Her Majesty is still experiencing mild cold-like symptoms she has decided not to undertake her planned virtual engagements today, but will continue with light duties," the palace said in a statement.
Despite not feeling 100 percent, it seems like she is doing just fine.
“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.”
Expert Robert Jobson revealed the matriarch was most likely staying positive during this time.
"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."
