UK’s Queen Consort Camilla Tests Positive For COVID-19

Must Read

The Queen Consort of Britain, Camilla, has tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, according to Buckingham Palace.

75-year-old Camilla, wife of King Charles III, was reportedly experiencing a “seasonal” illness. However, after testing positive for COVID-19, all her scheduled engagements for the week have been canceled. 

A statement from Buckingham Palace, announcing her health, said, “After suffering the symptoms of a cold, Her Majesty the Queen Consort has tested positive for the virus.”

“With regret, she has therefore canceled all her public engagements for this week and sends her sincere apologies to those who had been due to attend them,” the statement added.

The Queen Consort had many engagements planned in the English West Midlands, including a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Elmhurst Ballet School in Edgbaston, Birmingham.

She was also scheduled to pay a visit to Telford’s Southwater One Library to express her gratitude to the staff and volunteers for their service to the neighborhood.

A representative for Buckingham Palace expressed optimism that a replacement date for the canceled festivities may soon be found.

Early last year, Camilla was tested positive for coronavirus, which forced her to postpone her participation in a number of activities.

With minor symptoms, Charles had also tested positive for the virus a few times during the past few years.

King Charles III’s coronation will take place on May 6. He will be crowned as King alongside his wife Camilla who will be officially crowned as Queen Consort. Announcing the same, a statement by Buckingham Palace said, “The ceremony will see His Majesty King Charles III crowned alongside The Queen Consort.”
