Brave Queen, 95, admits 'frightening' Covid battle left her 'very tired and exhausted'
Queen has revealed that her own private battle with Covid in February this year left her "very tired and exhausted" as she hit out at the "horrible pandemic".The monarch, who turns 96 later this month, tested positive for coronavirus earlier this year and, despite having what Buckingham Palace said were “mild cold-like symptoms”, continued with as many remote public duties as she could.At the time of diagnosis, royal insiders were supposedly "terrified" and even "holding their breath". She has since beaten the virus.And for the first time, on a virtual visit to the Royal London Hospital on Wednesday (April 6), Her Majesty shed some more light on what her experience had been like – even agreeing with another patient that having Covid was "very frightening".The remote Royal visit was held to mark the official opening of the hospital's Queen Elizabeth Unit.During a video call with workers and medical staff, the Queen listened to their stories of coping with the huge influx of Covid patients, and was told by one senior nurse “we held their hands, we wiped their tears and we provided comfort”.Around 800 people from across north-east London were treated at the 155-bed Queen Elizabeth Unit, built in five weeks to meet the demand instead of the normal time period of five months, and the Queen hailed the "Dunkirk spirit" on show during that time.Speaking to former Covid patient Asef Hussain, and his wife Shamina, the Queen said about the virus: “I’m glad that you’re getting better…It does leave one very tired and exhausted, doesn’t it?

Prince Andrew 'betrayed by his body language as he walked Queen down aisle', says expert
Prince Andrew was chosen to escort his mother the Queen to Prince Philip’s memorial service to “soften his image” with the public but his body language “betrays” him, according to an expert.The Duke of York being heavily involved in the memorial has sparked controversy with it being his first appearance in public with the Royal Family since the high-profile settlement with his accuser Virginia Giuffre.Ms Giuffre was suing him for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was 17 after being trafficked by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who Andrew had a friendship with.Leading UK psychotherapist and body language expert Nick Davies watched Andrew as escorted the Queen and believes his simple nod at the end stopped his attempt to show his “empathetic side” to the general public on Tuesday (March 29).Nick told the Daily Star: “I think having Andrew support the Queen as she comes in could have also been to soften his image with the general public and show his empathetic side, however he betrays this by just nodding to her as they move to their seats on either side of the isle rather than checking of she's OK to make the last few steps.”In January this year, Andrew was stripped of his honorary military titles and patronages by the Queen, forcing him to relinquish using HRH.At the time, Buckingham Palace said: “The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”The Queen having Andrew by her side as she made her way to the front of Westminster Abbey was seen as “unexpected” by some experts after the trouble the now settled lawsuit caused.Keep up to date with all the latest news stories. by signing up for one of Daily Star's free newsletters here.Joe Little,
