    The Queen Consort has tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of her planned visit to Milton Keynes this week.

    The Queen Consort has tested positive for COVID-19, Buckingham Palace has said.

    The news comes as Camilla was due to join King Charles on a visit to Milton Keynes this Thursday.

    "After suffering the symptoms of a cold, Her Majesty The Queen Consort has tested positive for the COVID virus," a statement from Buckingham Palace reads.

    "With regret, she has therefore cancelled all her public engagements for this week and sends her sincere apologies to those who had been due to attend them."

    Earlier today, The Queen Consort has to postpone a visit to the West Midlands due to contracting a 'seasonal illness'.

    King Charles and Camilla are scheduled to attend a reception in Milton Keynes to celebrate city status this Thursday.

    Currently, no plans for the King to postpone visits have been announced.
