After recovering from COVID-19, Queen Elizabeth reportedly reunited with several of her family members, including her grandchildren.
The Daily Mail report shows that the Queen spent Sunday afternoon at her Windsor estate’s Frogmore Cottage with Princess Beatrice and her 5-month-old daughter, Sienna, as well as Prince William and Kate Middleton and their three children, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.
Princess Eugenie, her husband, Jack Brooksbank, and their 1-year-old son, August, live in Frogmore Cottage and were reportedly not present during the Queen’s visit.
According to the website, she also resumed her royal duties, hosting two virtual meetings with diplomats nine days after testing positive for the virus.
This is reportedly the first time the 95-year-old monarch has been seen by her grandchildren since she tested positive for coronavirus in February.
Buckingham Palace stated at the time that she was suffering from “mild cold-like symptoms” but would continue with “light duties.”
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will adhere to all relevant guidelines,” the palace said in a statement.
The monarch was immunized against COVID-19 in early 2021 and has since received a booster shot.
The queen’s positive diagnosis follows the positive testing of several other members of the British royal family for the virus.
Her eldest son, Prince Charles, tested positive for the virus for the second time in February, and her daughter-in-law, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, became infected four days later.
The Queen was closely monitored after making contact with Charles days before he tested positive for the virus, but she resumed her royal duties after testing negative for the virus.
When Queen Elizabeth had to cancel her engagements in October 2021 due to a one-night hospitalization, she raised health concerns.
She also drew attention when she began using a walking cane “for her comfort” that same month. Buckingham Palace, on the other hand, has stated that she is in good health and has returned to her royal duties quickly.
Queen Elizabeth is Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, having predeceased her husband, Prince Philip, in April 2021 at the age of 99.
Her son, Prince Charles, is the heir apparent to the throne. Meanwhile, Camilla, the Prince of Wales’ second wife, will become “Queen Consort” when Charles becomes king, the Queen announced last month.
