Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has revealed that she was left "very tired and exhausted" following her recent bout of Covid-19.

The 95-year-old monarch, who tested positive for coronavirus in February, discussed her experience in a video call with staff at an east London hospital on Wednesday.

The Queen said of the virus: "I'm glad that you're getting better...It does leave one very tired and exhausted, doesn't it? This horrible pandemic. It's not a nice result." 

He was the third member of his family to be hospitalized with Covid-19, after falling ill in December 2020.  

He added that he felt "like there's no oxygen in the room" and even stuck his head out the window, "just trying to breathe, trying to get that extra oxygen."

During her virtual visit, the Queen also heard how hospital staff responded to the huge influx of Covid patients.

The Queen -- who is celebrating her 70th year on the throne-- has dealt with a number of health issues in recent months.

The palace previously confirmed both the monarch and her late husband, Prince Philip, received their first doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in January 2021.
