Since her positive COVID-19 diagnosis, Queen Elizabeth II has been taking every precaution necessary to ensure her steady recovery. The long-reigning sovereign cancelled a number of meetings with dignitaries, and even made the decision to forgo virtual get-togethers during the onset of her mild symptoms. Now, it seems there are sure signs the monarch’s health is improving — Queen Elizabeth reportedly spent some time with her grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and her great-grandkids over the weekend.
According to Daily Mail, Queen Elizabeth II felt well enough this past weekend to spend some time at Windsor Castle with William, Kate, and their children — Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3. The queen invited the Cambridges for a mini-reunion at Frogmore House, which resides on the grounds of the aforementioned castle. The party was also joined by Princess Beatrice and her baby girl, Sienna, one of the newest additions to the royal family.
