What Did Queen Elizabeth Do After Recovering From COVID-19?

Queen Elizabeth II sparked concerns worldwide when it was confirmed that she had tested positive for COVID-19 on Feb. 20, 2022. The monarch, 95, was diagnosed with the virus just days after her oldest son, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, both tested positive as well, per BuzzFeed News

Despite her diagnosis, the palace released a statement revealing that the queen's symptoms were mild and that she would be isolated throughout her illness.

"Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week," the statement read. "She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines."

However, BBC reporter Daniella Ralph said that the palace was proceeding with caution concerning Elizabeth's illness, revealing that the queen's staff was keeping a closer eye on her than usual due to her advanced age.

"Also when you see the Queen now she is considerably thinner and frailer than she was a year ago and of course she will now have to be carefully monitored," she stated, per the Daily Mail.

But it seems that the queen has recovered from her COVID-19 scare and even spent time with her loved ones after leaving quarantine.

Queen Elizabeth visited family and went back to work following her COVID-19 recovery

According to People, Queen Elizabeth appears to be fully recovered after testing positive for COVID-19 in February 2022. 

The 95-year-old even visited with other members of the royal family after being cleared and opted for an outdoor visit over the weekend with her grandson Prince William; his wife, Kate Middleton; and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

The royals gathered outside at Frogmore House, which is an estate on the grounds of Windsor Castle. They were also joined by William's first cousin Princess Beatrice and her 5-month-old daughter, Sienna, as the queen spent time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The queen was also reportedly feeling well enough to get back to work and is said to have carried out two virtual meetings from her home at Windsor Castle on March 1, which was the first time that the monarch has been seen since her COVID diagnosis. Sources tell People that Elizabeth is continuing with her royal duties and has more private engagements scheduled.

Royal watchers are thankful that the queen appears to be doing well following her illness and are happy to see her back in action.
