Buckingham Palace has remained mum on Queen Elizabeth’s state of health following Covid-19 exposure from Prince Charles who tested positive days after visiting Windsor Castle last week. Palace officials still refuse to state if the 95-year-old monarch has tested positive for the coronavirus despite her going through a series of Covid tests with undisclosed results.

According to The Sun, royal sources said that the Queen has not displayed any related symptoms but continues to cite medical privacy in their stance to keep her state of health under wraps. It was Tuesday last week when Charles, 73, was in attendance at Windsor Castle in the presence of the Queen as he awarded OBEs on her behalf. This was their first meet-up since Christmas Day.

But despite being triple vaccinated, Charles once again tested positive for the virus during a routine lateral flow test that is performed for each of their scheduled public engagements. He has since been in self-isolation.

Meanwhile, Clarence House spokesperson announced Monday that Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for Covid-19 following a previous negative result on the same day Charles tested positive last week.

Palace aides said the 74-year-old Duchess had been carrying on with a string of engagements when her husband tested positive. And although she did test negative on the day Charles got his positive results, Camilla was not required to self-isolate at the time in accordance with current Covid-19 rules being that she is triple jabbed as well.

Clarence House said they will continue to review the Duchess’ engagements as she goes into isolation. “The Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating. We continue to follow government guidelines.”

Royal doctors continue to monitor the Queen’s health as media and royal observers play with speculate on the monarch’s Covid test results. Buckingham Palace on the other hand announced that she will be on a gentle and paced return to her engagements. She has been advised to take a lateral flow test every day until Thursday. The Queen will be fulfilling her diary of engagements at Windsor Castle next week, which could be an indicator that she has not been infected.
