“It [Covid] does leave one very tired and exhausted, doesn’t it?”
“This horrible pandemic. It’s not a nice result.”
Hussain told the Queen that at one point 500 friends and family from across the world were on a Zoom call praying for her husband. The monarch asked the couple: “So you have a large family, or a large influence on people?”
And referring to the restrictions on people visiting loved ones being treated in hospital at the time, the Queen said: “Of course not being able to see your relative was very hard.”
