Queen Elizabeth II returned to hold virtual audiences on Tuesday, a positive sign of her recovery after testing positive for COVID-19 in late February.
The queen, 95, completed two virtual engagements from Windsor Castle with the ambassadors from Andorra and Chad, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said in a statement to TODAY.
On February 20, Buckingham Palace announced that Elizabeth had been diagnosed with COVID-19. She was previously vaccinated along with her late husband, Prince Philip, in January 2021. She had also received a booster shot.
COVID-19 has been sweeping the royal family lately. Elizabeth’s eldest son, Prince Charles, 73, tested positive for the virus for the second time in early February. His wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 74, was later tested positive on 14 Feb.
Charles resumed royal duties shortly after. On February 17, he presented the Queen’s Anniversary Awards in St. Louis. James’s Palace in London, and a few days later he visited Hereford Cathedral.
The monarch’s health also raised concerns in October, when she had to spend a night in hospital, to cancel a trip to Northern Ireland in the process.
