The Queen and COVID-19 Contraction-Who Is Looking After Her?

The
Monarch is currently isolating herself after 
contracting COVID-19 on Sunday, but
who is looking after her?

It is likely the Queen wanted to thank Prof Sir Huw personally for his
care of her and the royal family.

Prof Sir Huw, who is also a professor of gastrointestinal genetics at
Imperial College London’s department of surgery and cancer, has previously
spoken of how grateful he was to be recognized for his service.

Professor Sir Huw Thomas is Head of the Medical Household and Physician
to the Queen, a role he has held since 2014.

He was knighted last year after being invested with the Insignia of a
Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order.

The Queen held an in-person audience at Windsor Castle on 16 February

Speaking at Imperial at the time of his knighthood, he said: “It’s
been a busy couple of years in this role, so I feel very grateful to have been
recognised for my service to date.”

He added: “You very much become part of that organisation and
become the personal doctor to the principal people in it, who are patients just
like other patients.

“With the pandemic, the key priority of the Medical Household is
trying to make sure that the people under its care are kept safe.”

The Queen has also been spotted using a walking stick of late

Concerns about the Queen’s health were first raised back in October 2021
when she had her first hospital stay in eight
years. 

It is likely to have been Prof Sir Huw who advised the head of state to
take things easy after she underwent preliminary tests in King Edward VII’s
Hospital on 20 October 2021.

A sprained back also prevented her from attending the Remembrance Sunday service in London
in November, and she was forced to pull out at the last minute.

The Queen recently marked the start of her Platinum Jubilee year

Following the Queen’s coronavirus diagnosis, Buckingham Palace has said
the monarch is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue
light duties at Windsor Castle over the coming week.

Professor Sir Huw has also been involved in delivering some of the
younger members of the Royal Family.

He was part of the team who looked after the Duchess of Cambridge when she gave birth to
daughter Princess Charlotte in 2015 and
youngest son Prince Louis in 2018 at St Mary’s
Hospital, Paddington, alongside Guy Thorpe-Beeston, surgeon gynaecologist to
the royal household, and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing, surgeon
gynaecologist to the Queen.
