The Queen has been praised for opening up on her covid symptoms after she came down with the virus in February.
You can watch a video clip of Her Majesty discussing her experience below:
The Queen, 95, opened up about her experience with covid during a video call to NHS staff at The Royal London Hospital.
Speaking to members of the team in the Queen Elizabeth Critical Care Unit, Her Majesty explained her own symptoms after hearing from a man named Asef who contracted covid in December.
Asef explained to the Queen that he was starting to feel better, and had recently been able to manage without a wheelchair.
"I'm glad that you're getting better," Her Majesty responded.
People are overjoyed that the Queen is feeling better, with many praising Her Majesty and commenting on how 'well she looks'.
One wrote: "I am in total awe of her Majesty. She is so beautiful and eloquent."
While another said: "She is an inspiration, as a monarch... as a woman, but most of all as a person. You can see why HM has such a special connection to so many people."
And a third added: "Great to see HM looking so well. Thank you for having that discussing [sic] with Asef. Glad to see he's getting better."
Meanwhile a fourth wrote: "She is an inspiration, as are all of the workers at the @RoyalLondonHosp!"
And a fifth added: "She looks fantastic!! So nice to see Her Majesty."
The Queen contracted covid back in February, just over a week after her son and heir to the throne Prince Charles contracted the virus for the second time.
A statement from the palace at the time said the royal was experiencing "mild" cold-like symptoms, adding that she expected "to continue with light duties at Windsor over the coming weeks".
