Queen Elizabeth II tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Buckingham Palace confirmed in a release a few minutes after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed he tested positive for the virus.

News of the Queen testing positive for COVID-19 was not surprising since there was a possibility that she could have been exposed by the virus during one of her weekly meetings with Johnson.

Buckingham Palace revealed the monarch held a face-to-face with Johnson on March 11. 

Earlier on Wednesday, it was announced that Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, had tested positive for the virus after showing mild symptoms. His office said he was self-isolating at a royal estate in Scotland.

The Prince of Wales, who last met the Queen on March 12, continues to work at his desk in his Scottish residence, Birkhall. 

The Queen, meanwhile, looks set to spend the next few weeks of self-isolation at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip as she recovers from the virus.
