Queen reveals she was left ‘very tired and exhausted’ during bout of Covid


The Queen has spoken about her bout of Covid, saying it left her “very tired and exhausted”, as she sympathised with a former virus patient who lost his brother and father to the illness. The monarch tested positive for Covid in February and, despite having what Buckingham Palace said were “mild cold-like symptoms”, was determined to carry out what duties she could. She made her comments during a virtual visit to the Royal London Hospital on Wednesday, to mark the official opening of the medical institution’s Queen Elizabeth Unit.
