The Royal Family have been keeping up with their patronages, working from home to praise those working hard in the fight against coronavirus.

Mr Johnson, 55, was admitted to St Thomas' Hospital, across the River Thames from parliament, late on Sunday after suffering symptoms including a fever and a cough for more than 10 days.

His condition deteriorated, and he was moved on Monday to an intensive care unit in case he needed to be put on a ventilator.

In an update on Tuesday evening, his Downing Street office said he would remain there for close monitoring and no further update was expected before Wednesday.

Buckingham Palace announced on Tuesday the Queen had reached out to Johnson’s fiancée Carrie Symonds and his family.

The statement said: “Her Majesty said they were in her thoughts and that she wished the Prime Minister a full and speedy recovery."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have also issued a message of support to Mr Johnson.

A message on the Kensington Royal Twitter account, ending with the initial W read: “Our thoughts are with the Prime Minister and his family, who like so many in the UK and around the world are affected by coronavirus.

“We wish him a speedy recovery at this difficult time.”
