Queen Elizabeth recovers from COVID-19


Queen Elizabeth II resumed public engagements yesterday after falling ill with Covid, as her son and heir Prince Charles was quoted as saying that she is “a lot better”.

Concerns have mounted for the 95-year-old monarch’s health since she tested positive on February 20, overshadowing the start of her record-breaking 70th year on the throne.

But a palace statement indicated she was now well enough to hold virtual engagements, hosting the new ambassadors of Andorra and Chad from her home at Windsor Castle.
