Buckingham Palace has refused to comment on the Queen's health as it was revealed Camilla also tested positive for Covid-19 after her husband Prince Charles was confirmed as a positive case last week.

Royal sources have confirmed Camilla, 74, is triple vaccinated and Clarence House will continue following government guidelines and review her engagements.

Camilla and Charles, 73, are isolating, but Buckingham Palace officials have said they will "not be providing a running commentary" on the Queen's health.

It was confirmed last week the Queen had no symptoms with royal officials telling MailOnline they had "nothing to add" to that after Camilla tested positive.

It is the first time Camilla has caught the virus, however, Charles has previously had the virus in March 2020.

Camilla was carrying out engagements last Thursday, the same day her husband tested positive.

Doctors are reportedly continuing to monitor the Queen's health as she spent time with Charles less than 48 hours before he tested positive.

At the time, Camilla said she had "luckily" tested negative. It's unclear whether Camilla also spent time with the Queen as well.

Earlier this month, Her Majesty endorsed Camilla to one day be known as Queen Consort, and asked the public to support her and Charles once he becomes King.

When Charles saw his mother last week it was the first time they'd seen each other since Christmas Day.

Buckingham Palace has also refused to say whether the Queen had even undergone a test, or, if she had, what the result was, saying Her Majesty has the "right to medical privacy".

Early last week, they announced a gentle return to engagements for the Queen following some ill-health last year, which included a hospital stay in November.
