The queen has been laying low since testing positive for COVID-19 in February, making few public appearances following her diagnosis. Though she reportedly visited Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children at Frogmore House, Queen Elizabeth has canceled numerous engagements due to contracting the virus.
Buckingham Palace released an official statement that confirmed the queen’s diagnosis. At the time of her illness, a spokesman said that she was “experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but [expected] to continue light duties at Windsor.”
One of those engagements was Prince Philip's memorial at Westminster Abbey, for which she was escorted by her son, Prince Andrew. The royal highness was also joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their eldest children, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 6.
Here’s to seeing more public appearances by the queen—even if they're only virtual.
