Queen Elizabeth returns to virtual engagements after COVID-19 diagnosis

The queen held two virtual audiences on Tuesday and appears to be on the mend after testing positive for COVID-19 last month.

Queen Elizabeth II returned to holding virtual audiences Tuesday, a positive sign in her recovery after testing positive for COVID-19 in late February.

The queen, 95, conducted two virtual engagements from Windsor Castle with the ambassadors from Andorra and Chad, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said in a statement to TODAY.

On Feb. 20, Buckingham Palace announced Elizabeth was diagnosed with COVID-19. She was previously vaccinated alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, in January 2021. She had also received a booster shot.

Due to her diagnosis, the monarch postponed two scheduled virtual audiences she had planned last week and also canceled a few of them as well.

COVID-19 has swept the royal family of late. Elizabeth's oldest son, Prince Charles, 73, tested positive for the virus for the second time in early February. His wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 74, later tested positive on Feb. 14.

Charles resumed royal duties soon after. On Feb. 17, he presented the Queen’s Anniversary Prizes at St. James’s Palace in London, and a few days after that, he visited Hereford Cathedral.

The monarch's health was also a cause for concern in October when she had to spend one night in the hospital, canceling a trip to Northern Ireland in the process.

Doctors told her to rest for two weeks and stop taking long walks in Windsor Great Park. She was also advised not to drink her Dubonnet cocktails anymore.
