She has tested positive with mild symptoms, let’s hope it stays that way. I truly hope she comes through it.

Those of you with faith maybe say a little prayer 🙏🏼

Gosh that of course should say has, sorry maybe it could be corrected.

FannyCornforth Sun 20-Feb-22 11:57:43

I’ve asked for it to be changed tanith
It’s the first I have heard about it.
Quite worrying thanks

Just heard this on the news. What a horrible time she’s having right now.

Thoughts, prayers, fingers crossed etc,. For a speedy recovery.

Josieann Sun 20-Feb-22 11:59:14

I hope she will be ok. She could certainly do without that.

lemsip Sun 20-Feb-22 11:59:46

where did you get that information? I news watch all the time and have not found it.

Galaxy Sun 20-Feb-22 12:01:49

It's on sky news. BBC tends to be slower.

lavendermine Sun 20-Feb-22 12:02:17

Oh dear, sorry to hear this. Get well soon.

mokryna Sun 20-Feb-22 12:02:25

Her Majesty is in my thoughts.
I hope she has a speedy recovery.

lemsip Sun 20-Feb-22 12:04:02

foun it now.
................................bbc news....
The Queen has tested positive for Covid, Buckingham Palace has said.

The palace said the monarch is experiencing "mild cold-like symptoms" but expects to continue "light duties" at Windsor over the coming week.

Casdon Sun 20-Feb-22 12:05:26

I’m glad she didn’t catch it from Charles, he would feel dreadful if she had. Hopefully her symptoms will remain mild.

tanith Sun 20-Feb-22 12:08:30

Thanks FCforth

GrannyGravy13 Sun 20-Feb-22 12:09:25

Hopefully it’s omicron, I guess she is fully vaccinated and any symptoms will be mild.

FannyCornforth Sun 20-Feb-22 12:10:18

How do they/ we know that she didn’t catch it from Charles?

tanith Sun 20-Feb-22 12:10:20

Lemsip I would always check several news sources before posting something like that.

ShazzaKanazza Sun 20-Feb-22 12:10:46

I hoping that she’s had it a few days and they’ve waited to see how she is before releasing the news. 🤞she carries on only having light symptoms. She’ll have the best care.

FannyCornforth Sun 20-Feb-22 12:10:58

She’ll have access to the antivirals too, I should imagine

BlueSky Sun 20-Feb-22 12:16:39

Got the news from the Australian press, before seeing it on the BBC. Of course they are so many hours ahead of us! wink

Grandma70s Sun 20-Feb-22 12:26:36

Nothing can happen to the Queen! The kingdom would fall! (Or perhaps I should say the Queendom.)

VioletSky Sun 20-Feb-22 12:33:29

Wishing her a speedy recovery

BlueBelle Sun 20-Feb-22 12:34:21

The news doesn’t seem to be in cinque as just now on radio 4 it said the queen has a mild cold

maddyone Sun 20-Feb-22 12:35:33

Hope she gets well soon.

I thought I heard that the Queen had cold like symptoms

Namsnanny Sun 20-Feb-22 12:43:25

Funny I woke up thinking about her this morning. Not something I usually do, pontificate about the royals first thingsmile.
I think it was because she looked thinner the last time I saw her on the TV, but her voice sounded so determined and strong, it made an impression on me.
Yes I hope the press arnt downplaying her symptoms.
What a horrible past couple of years shes had, I feel sympathy for her position.

BlueBelle Sun 20-Feb-22 12:43:59

Yes I think you’re right grannygravy I maybe didn’t hear the start of the report and just heard mild cold symptoms
Apologies
Poor old gal hope she’s alright Charles would never forgive himself if she got very ill
