Queen Elizabeth Talked To Boris Johnson Just Days Before He Tested Positive On Coronavirus
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms, has been in self-isolation at Windsor Castle in order to avoid contracting coronavirus.
Even due the global lockdown and coronavirus pandemic, head of the British Royal Family has still been conducting her usual business — just by phone. This week she was photographed speaking with England’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson via phone.
“The Queen held her weekly Audience with the Prime Minister today by telephone. Her Majesty – pictured this evening at Windsor Castle – has held a weekly Audience with her Prime Minister throughout her reign,” the caption read.
On Friday, Johnson revealed he tested positive for the virus.
“Over the last 24 hours, I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this,” Johnson wrote on Twitter.
“But be in no doubt that I can continue, thanks to the wizardry of modern technology, to communicate with all my top team to lead the national fightback against coronavirus,” Johnson added.
Queen Elizabeth’s son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles, has also tested positive for coronavirus.
