According to The Mirror, the royal family will "rally around" the monarch, 95, and step in when needed.

The Evening Standard also reported that Prince Edward, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Princess Anne and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall will also take over royal duties as needed.

“Her Majesty is ably supported by her family. She will continue with light duties but of course, will listen to her medical team," a source said.

On Sunday, February 20, the palace released a short statement about the Queen's status. “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.”

But two days later, the palace announced she was planning on canceling some virtual appearances since she is under the weather.

"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," Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

Robert Jobson noted that it was important for the Queen to rest during this time.

"I really think given her great age, that she should have a complete rest, and leave the duties to others in her family," he shared. "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. 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. That said, every time there is a palace bulletin about the health of the monarch, it focuses the minds of her family and her loyal subjects during this Platinum Jubilee year."
