Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II participated in a weekly phone call with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, according to PEOPLE.

She is at home recovering from mild flu-like symptoms after testing positive for COVID, despite being triple vaccinated.

PEOPLE reported that several fully vaccinated Royal Household members have also tested positive for coronavirus.

The Queen, 95, spoke with Johnson over the phone from Windsor Castle on Wednesday, Feb. 23.

The Monarch must not have gotten the memo that she passed away.

Jason Lee, who runs the Hollywood Unlocked Instagram blog, reported that someone in Buckingham Palace told him the Queen of England had succumbed to Covid-19.

After becoming the laughing stock of Instagram, Lee doubled down, insisting that he trusted his Buckingham Palace source - and that he was awaiting an official statement.

Lee's report barely nudged the trending needle on social media because it was so patently absurd.

How narcissistic of him to think that a royal insider would give an American blogger the biggest news story of the year.

Somehow, your auntie's name got dropped in the mix.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is listed as "stable" after spending the night in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at London's St. Thomas' Hospital as his coronavirus symptoms "worsened" and he went into respiratory distress.

On Sunday, April 5, Johnson was admitted to the National Health Service (NHS) hospital after battling COVID-19 for 10 days.

When he began suffering from respiratory distress on Monday, he was moved to the ICU and listed in serious condition.

Providing an update on his condition, a spokesperson said, "The Prime Minister has been stable overnight and remains in good spirits. He is receiving standard oxygen treatment and is breathing without any other assistance."

The spokesperson insisted Johnson did not require intubation or a ventilator to stabilize his breathing.

"He has not required mechanical ventilation or non-invasive respiratory support."

Typically, patients in respiratory distress are placed on a ventilator in ICU where the nurse-to-patient ratio is one-to-one or one-to-two.

The spokesperson denied reports that Johnson was diagnosed with a potentially fatal pneumonia caused by Covid-19.

But according to reports, Johnson was having difficulty breathing and his oxygen saturation levels were so low that he was moved to ICU in anticipation of being placed on a ventilator to support his breathing.

Johnson is the first world leader to be hospitalized with Covid-19.

Johnson, 55, and his fiancee, Carrie Symonds, 31, are expecting a baby in early summer. She is recovering from Covid-19.

The British media claims Johnson has at least 5 children - though he has never confirmed the exact number.
