Insider Reveals What The Royal Family Thinks Of Queen Elizabeth's COVID-19 Diagnosis

The announcement that Queen Elizabeth II had tested positive for COVID-19 came as worrisome news to royal spectators. As per the BBC, Buckingham Palace announced that Her Majesty had tested positive for the virus on Sunday, February 20, and revealed the British monarch was experiencing "mild cold-like symptoms" but expected to continue "light duties." The Buckingham Palace statement continued, "She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines."

The news came after it was also announced that the queen's eldest child, and first in line to the throne, Prince Charles, had tested positive for COVID-19 on February 10 — just two days after he had been in direct contact with his mother. In fact, it was reported that a quite a few people who had been in and around Windsor Castle had tested positive, so news of the queen's diagnosis came as little surprise to some. 

Now, an insider has revealed what the rest of the royal family really think about Queen Elizabeth's COVID-19 diagnosis.

The queen's "croaky" voice doesn't worry the royal family

As People reported, Queen Elizabeth II was forced to cancel virtual meetings on Tuesday, February 22, and Thursday, February 24, following news that she had tested positive for COVID-19 the prior Sunday. 

Speaking to The Daily Mail, a royal insider revealed that the queen decided to postpone certain engagements as her voice was sounding a "little croaky." Although, despite concerns surrounding the monarch's health, the royal family is "confident she will make a full recovery" as the queen is being "constantly monitored."

Although Her Majesty has taken a step back from royal duties while self-isolating at Windsor Castle, the queen still carved out time to hold a phone meeting with the U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday, February 23. Per People, the queen is also fully vaccinated. So, hopefully, the long-reigning monarch will be back to her best in no time.
