    The Queen has held her first in-person weekly audience with the prime minister in 15 months, and informed him she had been speaking to ‘your secretary of state for health, poor man’. Her sympathetic comment could be a reaction to the weight of responsibility resting on Hancock because of the Covid-19 pandemic, or could reflect the battering he has received from the former No 10 senior aide Dominic Cummings
