Royal expert Robert Jobson, the author of ‘William: The Making of a Modern Monarch’, suggested members of the Royal Family, including the Prince of Wales, won’t be complacent in response to the monarch contracting COVID-19. The Queen, 95, tested positive for Covid shortly after Charles, 73, caught the virus for a second time.
Camilla Parker-Bowles, 74, also tested positive for coronavirus just days after her husband.
A statement released on Sunday said: “Buckingham Palace confirm that The Queen has today tested positive for Covid.
“Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week.
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines.”

However, Mr Jobson informed the Mirror about the Covid concerns shared by members of the Royal Family about the monarch.
He said: “The palace has assured us that there is no need for panic, with their statement talking of ‘mild cold like’ symptoms.
“Thankfully, she has a top medical team around her, monitoring constantly.
“As a rule, the Palace do not routinely talk about the Queen’s health unless they have something definite to say, and she clears it.

“Charles often spends longer at Windsor Castle when he visits these days, so that he can enjoy quality time with his mother.
“Kate, Duchess of Cambridge flies to Copenhagen this week for a series of solo engagements. If there was a serious cause for concern, I am sure that overseas visit would have been postponed.
“That said, every time there is a palace bulletin about the health of the monarch, it focuses the minds of her family and her loyal subjects during this Platinum Jubilee year.”
