Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Sunday the 95-year-old British monarch will continue to perform light duties.

“Buckingham Palace confirm that the queen has today tested positive for COVID,” the statement said.

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

The queen has received three jabs of the coronavirus vaccine.

Both her eldest son Prince Charles, 73, and daughter-in-law Camilla, 74, Duchess of Cornwall, also recently contracted COVID-19.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wished Queen Elizabeth a quick recovery.

“I’m sure I speak for everyone in wishing Her Majesty The Queen a swift recovery from COVID and a rapid return to vibrant good health,” Johnson said on Twitter.

Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, the queen reached the milestone of 70 years on the throne on February 6.
