The Queen has sent a message to Prime Minister Boris Johnson's fiancée as he battles Coronavirus COVID-19.

The Monarch told Carrie Symonds and the Johnson family that her thoughts are with them at this time.

Buckingham Palace said: "Earlier today The Queen sent a message to Carrie Symonds and to the Johnson family.

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

Prince William has also sent a message to Johnson, tweeting: "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."

He signed the tweet with "W".

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall also "sent their wishes for a speedy recovery to the Prime Minister this morning", a spokesman for the pair confirmed.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman insisted he was "stable" and in "good spirits" some 17 hours after he was taken to the critical unit at St Thomas' Hospital.

Sources claimed he had received a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) breathing aid, amid fears he may contract pneumonia or have to be fully ventilated.

No10 admit his condition "worsened" last night after he was admitted to the London hospital with a cough and fever on Sunday.

But asked if the PM had pneumonia - which indicates the most critical complications from Covid-19 - his spokesman said "That is not the case, no."

The spokesman added not only had the PM not been on a ventilator at this stage, he had also not received "non-invasive" oxygen, thought to include CPAP.
