Here we go again ! The Covid-19 epidemic is still very present in the world and especially in the United Kingdom. On February 10, the British royal family announced that Prince Charles tested positive for the virus. It was also stated that he had been in contact with his mother two days earlier. Thus, it is no surprise that, a few days later, it was Elizabeth II who tested positive for Covid-19. The state of health of the sovereign worries since she is 95 years old. However, two photos shared by Lizzie Robinson, a royal journalist, on her Twitter account on Tuesday March 1 quickly reassured the British. On this one, we can discover it during two virtual meetings that she had successively. Both took place with the new ambassadors of Chad, Kedella Younous Hamidi, and Andorra, Carles Jordana Madero. While they were at Buckingham Castle, the Queen of England, for her part, was not physically present. Indeed, she was at Windsor Castle and was therefore able to chat with them by videoconference on the computer. For the occasion, she opted for a plain green dress, one of the three colors of Wales. It’s St David’s Day, Welsh’s national holiday, so this color choice is certainly no coincidence. Two shots that suggest that the state of health of the sovereign is improving.
They are worried. For several months, the state of health of Elizabeth II has been at the center of attention. The sovereign chained cancellations and Buckingham Palace had tried to be reassuring. “Her Majesty continues to exercise light duties. No other engagement is planned for this week”, it was specified. According to information published by the Daily Mail a few days ago, the Queen of England only suffered from a “mild form of Covid-19, similar to a cold”, it was indicated. Subsequently, the tabloid had added that it is “essentially because she was hoarse that she would not have kept the commitments provided for in the video”. Well surrounded, it would seem that Elizabeth II is doing much better. The newspaper also revealed that she was in the presence of two of her grandchildren and four of her great-grandchildren that Sunday afternoon. Indeed, she found her grandson Prince William, his wife Kate Middleton and their three children, Princes George (8 and a half years old) and Louis (3 and a half years old) and Princess Charlotte ( 6 and a half years old), as well as Princess Beatrice of York and her daughter, Sienna Mapelli Mozzi, aged 5 months. A moment that all spent at Frogmore House, one of the residences of the Windsor estate, located one kilometer from its castle. There is no doubt that this reunion was very beneficial for the sovereign, who was able to enjoy a moment with her family.
The Queen has been seen for the first time since she tested positive for Covid. She was feeling well enough to carry out two virtual audiences from Windsor Castle today with the Ambassadors of Andorra and Chad. (@VictoriaJonesPA) pic.twitter.com/OaS6Y1txOT

Elizabeth II: what event has she recently canceled?
A few days ago, Buckingham Palace announced that the “diplomatic reception scheduled for Wednesday at Windsor Castle has been cancelled”, it could first read. This was scheduled for March 2 and it was the head of diplomacy Liz Truss who advised Elizabeth II. “The Queen has accepted the advice of the Foreign Secretary that the diplomatic reception scheduled for Windsor on Wednesday March 2 should be postponed,” it said in a statement. However, no reason was given for the decision, which quickly heightened concern over the Queen’s health.
