Her Majesty tested positive for the virus on February 20, leaving many worried about her health.

However, Chris Ship, ITV News’ royal editor, has provided his 113.1k Twitter followers, and the British public in general, with some good news.

“She cancelled similar engagements last week after testing positive for the virus,” he continued.

“It’s a sign she’s very much on the mend.”

The 95-year-old monarch’s battle with Covid began last month when she tested positive for the virus.

It was expected, at first, that the Queen was going to be doing “light work”, despite her positive test.

The sort of “light work” expected was hosting virtual audiences via video link.

However, last Tuesday (February 22) the Queen was forced to cancel her virtual audiences for the day. This was because she was still suffering from “mild, cold-like symptoms”.

Things were looking up by the following day though (Wednesday, February 23). It was reported that Her Majesty had had her weekly meeting with Boris Johnson, albeit via phone.

Royal fans will undoubtedly be hoping that Her Majesty will be back out hosting in-person engagements soon.
