Royal reporter Richard Palmer wrote: “The Queen is up and about at Windsor Castle and was well enough to give Prime Minister Boris Johnson an audience on the phone this evening despite suffering mild Covid-19 symptoms.”
On Tuesday there was a bit of uncertainty around whether or not the Queen would be able to have her weekly meeting with the Prime Minister, especially considering that she had cancelled other virtual appearances.
However, this latest update will leave many royal fans feeling relieved and hopeful that Her Majesty can make a full recovery from Covid-19.
How have royal fans responded?

“The Queen remains a total inspiration,” a third wrote.
‘I’m glad Her Majesty is somewhat better!” another said.
“She’s so dedicated to her role, long live the Queen. Amazing Queen,” a fifth said.
The Queen’s health battle with Covid
The Queen’s battle with Covid-19 began on Sunday (February 20) when she tested positive for the virus.
Despite the positive test, the 95-year-old was expected to continue with “light-work”, including hosting virtual audiences.
However, on Tuesday (February 22), Buckingham Palace announced that she had cancelled her virtual audiences for that day.
“As Her Majesty is still experiencing mild cold-like symptoms she has decided not to undertake her planned virtual engagements today, but will continue with light duties,” they said.
Other audiences that the Queen had planned were likely placed under review at the time.
However, with Her Majesty completing her audience (albeit via phone call) with the Prime Minister yesterday, there is hope that she will be able to continue doing her “light work” while she isolates.
