Covid-19: Queen Elizabeth II is gradually resuming her commitments


After canceling engagements last week because she was positive for Covid-19, Queen Elizabeth II held two hearings by videoconference on Tuesday.

The sovereign, who will celebrate her 96th birthday in April, including more than 70 on the throne, spoke with the new ambassadors of Chad and the Principality of Andorra from the castle where she resides.

In addition to announcing the resumption of its activities, the palace of Buckingham, rather stingy with details on the state of health of the queen, broadcast images of the interviews of Elizabeth II, showing it on the screen.

Prince Charles gives reassuring news

During his trip to the south-east of England, Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, said on Tuesday that the queen was now “much better”.

As a reminder, last week, she had canceled her planned engagements with diplomats because she suffered, according to her services, from “mild” symptoms of Covid-19.

In addition to her contamination, the appearances of the sovereign have become increasingly rare. Despite everything, the palace announced the resumption of the public activities of the queen.

On March 29, she will participate in a ceremony in memory of Prince Philip, her husband who died last year.
