The Queen is reportedly being monitored after she met with son, Prince Charles, just days before he tested positive for COVID-19 for a second time.

The 95-year-old Monarch is said to not be showing any symptoms after 73-year-old Prince Charles was forced to pull out of an event in Winchester that was being held to mark the 70th anniversary of Elizabeth becoming Queen.

"This morning The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating," his office, Clarence House, said in a statement on Twitter.

“HRH is deeply disappointed not to be able to attend today's events in Winchester and will look to reschedule his visit as soon as possible."

While there was no update on his condition, he had met with his mother recently, with a palace source telling Hello! magazine that the Monarch is now being monitored.

The Prince of Wales was at Windsor Castle on Tuesday to hand out honours. He’s believed to have met with his mother while he was there.

The Queen confirmed in early 2021 she had received her first COVID-19 vaccine dose, encouraging others to also have the shot, but the palace has declined to confirm whether she has received subsequent shots, saying it does not comment on private medical matters.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles and Camilla both confirmed that they have received their booster shots.

Prince Charles tested positive for COVID-19 in March 2020, with Clarence House saying he was “displaying mild symptoms”.

The prince lost his smell and taste and spent seven days in isolation, but recovered from the virus.
