Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for COVID-19

Queen Elizabeth II tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday and is experiencing mild, cold-like symptoms.

The diagnosis prompted concern and get-well wishes from across Britain's political spectrum.

The queen reached the milestone of 70 years on the throne on Feb. 6, the anniversary of the 1952 death of her father, King George VI. 

The palace said the queen, who has been fully vaccinated and had a booster shot, would continue with "light" duties at Windsor Castle over the coming week.

Both the queen's eldest son Prince Charles, 73, and her 74-year-old daughter-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall contracted COVID-19 earlier this month. 

Charles has since returned to work. There are also thought to be several recent virus cases among staff at Windsor Castle, where the queen is staying.
