Fortunately for Queen Elizabeth, when she came down with COVID-19, “it was very mild,” according to Prince Charles who informed golf course employee Janice Jacom of the queen’s health status during an appearance at the beginning of March, per Hello!. At the time, he also noted, “She’s a lot better now…”
That’s surely why the queen was able to spend time with her family at Windsor Castle on the weekend — outside to be safe, of course — before getting back to work during the week, according to People.
On March 1, the queen took part in an official engagement where she appeared at a distance and virtually to keep both herself and the ambassadors she was meeting with safe. She did the same on March 3 at Buckingham Palace while conducting her discussions virtually. Although it’s unclear whether the monarch is feeling completely back to normal or still had some lingering symptoms as she got back to her work, she certainly seemed to be in a rather cheerful mood during her virtual appearances as she could be seen smiling while chatting. Hopefully, that means she’s well on her way to a full recovery!
