will decide on the same day whether or not to participate in public events

The British will now have to recover: health continues to pose problems for Queen Elizabeth who will appear less and less in public. Given her growing difficulties in getting around, voices from those around her say that the monarch will decide to appear in public on the day of the event, without planning it in advance. The 95-year-old Queen’s battle with Covid earlier this year left her “exhausted”, as she herself admitted, meaning her presence at real events cannot always be guaranteed. Elizabeth is almost alone in a wheelchair and her health seems to be deteriorating. Royal Household sources told the Mail on Sunday that “the assumption must now be that the Queen will not be present at the events. If, on the other hand, Her Majesty will attend, it will be decided on the day and she will be accompanied by another member of the royal family.

The decision comes after the Queen in these first months of the year was forced to give up a whole series of important engagements. After last October, his only other appearance it was March 29, during the service in memory of her late husband, Prince Philip. Elizabeth was therefore not present at Easter Sunday mass in Windsor and not even, a few days earlier, on Maundy Thursday, the Maundy Thursday ceremony which she missed for the first time in 52 years. The almost 96-year-old sovereign of records, who celebrates the platinum jubilee of her 70 years on the throne in 2022 with increasing effort, has in fact allowed herself to be delegated by the heir Carlo with his wife Camilla to the function traditional in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Although it is an event of great symbolic importance for the Anglican Church and for the monarchy, during which those who represent the royal family are called upon to distribute a donation to the community, a task entrusted to the prince Charles, given the traffic difficulties publicly admitted by the old queen.

Meeting Meghan and Harry

On the same day, however, Elizabeth had an equally significant private encounter: the one with her nephew Harry who, traveling with his wife Meghan Markle from the United States, stopped over in London to greet the sovereign. A surprise visit a week after Elizabeth II’s 96th birthday to offer the weary grandmother-queen what several British media interpreted as “an olive branch”. Harry and Meghan have come face to face with the matriarch of the House of Windsor after being torn from the royal family more than two years ago. The last in-person contact with the grandmother of Carlo and Diana’s second son was in July 2021, when his wife never returned to the country after the so-called Megxit, dated January 2020.
