Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth is reportedly giving her voice a rest amid her recovery from COVID-19. Sources told Daily Mail that the monarch postponed her engagements this week due to her voice sounding a “little croaky.”
The unnamed insider claimed Queen Elizabeth was “on the mend” even if she is “understandably still sounds full of cold.” While Her Majesty continues to isolate, other reports suggested that several members of the Royal Household based at Windsor Castle have also tested positive for COVID-19.
It was previously revealed that Prince Charles met with Queen Elizabeth two days before he got his COVID-19 positive diagnosis. Since then, a royal source confirmed that the monarch was being monitored but was not displaying any symptoms at the time.
Queen Elizabeth went maskless for an in-house meeting at Windsor Castle on Feb. 16, where she met with outgoing Defense Services Secretary Rear admiral James Macleod and Major General Eldon Millar, who is taking over the said position.
The British monarch is reportedly fully vaccinated and has been staying at Windsor Castle since the start of the pandemic. Anyone who wishes to enter the castle to see Queen Elizabeth is required to take a COVID-19 test.
