She's a busy bee! After being diagnosed with COVID-19 on February 20, Queen Elizabeth hosted her first in-person meeting with Justin Trudeau on Monday, March 7.
The 95-year-old looked to be in good spirits as she shook hands with the Canadian Prime Minister.
"🇨🇦 This afternoon The Queen received the Prime Minister of Canada, @justinpjtrudeau, for an Audience at Windsor Castle. Find out more about Audiences on our website," the caption read via The Royal Family's Instagram page.
Of course, people loved seeing the matriarch on her feet again. One person wrote, "Happy seeing Queenie up and about 👑👸," while another added, "The queen looks well! Glad she recovered."
A third person added, "Good to see her back at it! She looks wonderful, so glad to see her! 💗."
Last week, the Queen's eldest son, Prince Charles, gave an update on how his mother has been doing.
"I asked the Prince about his mother, and he said, 'She's a lot better now — it was very mild.' It was a bit worrying as the Queen is getting on a bit, but I think she's absolutely wonderful," a local recalled.
Though she was under the weather for some time, on March 1, she held two virtual engagements. "Today the Queen held audiences with incoming ambassadors via video link from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace," a caption on the royal family's Instagram page read. "His Excellency Mr. Carles Jordana Madero, Ambassador from Andorra and His Excellency Mr. Kedella Younous Hamidi, Ambassador from Chad."
Despite the family being worried about the Queen, it seems like she took it all in stride.
“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.”
