The Queen has postponed two virtual audiences in the wake of her Covid diagnosis, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

The 95-year-old monarch was continuing to experience mild cold-like symptoms after testing positive for coronavirus on Sunday and has been self-isolating at Windsor Castle.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said on Thursday, February 24: “The two virtual audiences that had previously been scheduled to take place today will now be rescheduled for a later date.

“Her Majesty is continuing with light duties. No other engagements are scheduled for this week.”

The Queen was also forced to cancel two planned engagements due to be held on video link on Tuesday after feeling under the weather.

But she did have her telephone audience with the Prime Minister on Wednesday.

Concerns for the nation’s longest-reigning sovereign have been heightened given her age, frailer appearance of late and recent health scare.

The Queen has a run of high-profile engagements coming up.

She is set to host the Diplomatic Reception on March 2, where she will meet hundreds of members of the Diplomatic Corps at Windsor.

The Queen is also due to attend the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 14, and then the Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service, also at the Abbey, on March 29.
