Buckingham Palace says Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing mild, cold-like symptoms.
Palace officials said Sunday that the 95-year-old British monarch will continue with light duties.
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines,” the palace explained in a statement quoted by the BBC.
The Queen has received three jabs of coronavirus vaccine.
Both her eldest son Prince Charles, with whom she has been in contact, and daughter-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have also recently been infected.
