The monarch, who is 95, is suffering from mild cold-like symptoms and is expected to resume the duties of a light-duty monarch on the throne at Windsor next week, Windsor said.
She is believed to be triple-vaccinated.
There was constant contact with Prince Charles when Prince Charles was found positive for COVID for the 2nd time.
The announcement was made days before the Queen, the longest-reigning monarch, celebrated her historical Platinum Jubilee of 70 years as a monarch.
‘Mild cold-like symptoms.’
A statement issued by Buckingham Palace said: “Buckingham Palace confirms that Queen Elizabeth II is today positive for Covid.
“Her Majesty is suffering mild cold symptoms, but she expects to perform delicate tasks at Windsor during the following week.
“She is expected to continue receiving medical treatment and following all proper guidelines.”
The Royal Household has its royal doctors, and the doctors of the Queen will be there to treat and check on her health.
Professor Sir Huw Thomas, the Head of the Medical Household and Physician to the Queen, is expected to take charge.
There is a possibility that Queen Elizabeth II has been spending the night with Prince Charles on February 8 in Windsor Castle – a few days later, he has had a positive test for the virus but was able to recover quickly to be fully healthy.
Her Duchess, the Duke of Cornwall, has also been tested positive.
The messages of support come into Queen.
The chairman of the Conservatives and the Labor party leader are among the people to send their best wishes to Queen Elizabeth II.
Sir Keir Starmer tweeted: “On behalf of myself and the entire @UKLabour, I wish Her Majesty the Queen the best of health and quick recovery. Be well soon, ma’am.”
MP Oliver Dowden tweeted: “Wishing Her Majesty’s Royal Highness a speedy recovery.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “The commitment Her Majesty the Queen has shown towards our nation is unshakeable.

Since the middle of October, the monarch has been given medical advice to lay down.
The COVID diagnosis is likely to cause anxiety due to the Queen’s age and her health concerns in recent months.
She’s been receiving orders from doctors for rest from mid-October when she pulled out of a string of appearances and spent the night in a hospital for preliminary tests.
She could not go to her funeral at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday due to a sprain in her back.
In December, Prince Charles spoke of his health: “Once you get to 95, it’s just not as simple as it was. It’s already bad enough at 73.”
The monarch performed her first public engagement for more than three weeks on February 5, a Saturday before her Jubilee, when she greeted volunteers from the charity Sandringham House and cut a birthday cake.
The Queen canceled her annual family gathering on her Norfolk estate due to increasing Omicron cases across the UK.
The Queen was celebrating her first Christmas without her Duke of Edinburgh, her husband of over 72 years, who died on April 9.
The actress returned to Windsor in February, but not before the beginning of February.
