Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II admitted on Wednesday that she has mobility problems, during her first in-person audience since fears arose that she might have contracted Covid-19.
In images released by Buckingham Palace of a meeting at Windsor Castle near London between Elizabeth II and outgoing and incoming British Defense Secretaries, the monarch is seen waving to them while standing with a cane. .
“As you can see, I can’t move,” the queen is heard saying, pointing to her left foot or leg, the area that would cause her discomfort.
On February 10, her son, Prince Charles of Wales, tested positive for covid-19 for the second time, two days after meeting the queen. The prince’s wife, Camila, also tested positive shortly after and the couple have been in quarantine ever since, AFP reports.
Sources from the British royal family stated that Elizabeth II had no symptoms, but did not specify if a coronavirus test was carried out.
Last October, the monarch spent a night in the hospital to undergo some “preliminary tests”, the nature of which was not specified.
