Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for COVID-19, according to Buckingham Palace.
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines,” the palace said in a statement Sunday.
The 95-year-old monarch is experiencing mild, cold-like symptoms, according to the statement.
The Queen is triple vaccinated, and first received the coronavirus vaccine last January.
Prince Charles, the heir-to-the-throne, and his wife Camilla also tested positive for the coronavirus this month. Both are triple vaccinated and self-isolated after the positive tests.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted: “I’m sure I speak for everyone in wishing Her Majesty The Queen a swift recovery from Covid and a rapid return to vibrant good health.”
The announcement comes weeks after the UK’s longest reigning monarch reached her Platinum Jubilee of 70 years on 6 February.
On the eve of her Jubilee, she carried out her first major public engagement for more than three months, meeting charity workers at Sandringham House.
