Queen Elizabeth II tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday and has mild cold-like symptoms, but she intends to keep working.

"She will continue to receive medical attention," the palace said.

Elizabeth was seen riding a horse in 2020. She's been seen with a cane recently and spent the night in a London hospital in October for tests.

So she missed important events like Remembrance Sunday services and the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in November.

Just this month, she returned to public duties, holding virtual and in-person audiences with diplomats and politicians.

Last week, she walked slowly with a stick and said, "as you can see, I can't move," referring to her leg.

"I would guess she'll be more down to earth about the diagnosis than the people around her," he said.
