The Queen has revealed the toll that Covid took on her, as she spoke to patients and NHS staff about the “horrible” pandemic.
The 95-year-old monarch tested positive for coronavirus in February but carried on performing duties in isolation from Windsor Castle.
She spoke about her condition during a video call with the Royal London Hospital to mark the official opening of its Queen Elizabeth Unit.
Talking to former Covid patient Asef Hussain, and his wife Shamina, the Queen said: “It does leave one very tired and exhausted, doesn’t it? This horrible pandemic. It’s not a nice result.”
