Sources from Buckingham Palace confirmed to the British newspaper “Daily Mail” on Monday that Queen Elizabeth II (95) is not ill and still wants to fulfill her duties as regent.
But the chancellors and the Queen agreed that their schedule should be smaller, especially since public appearances are much less. “The royal advisors and the Queen herself know that they must accept the infirmities that long life brings. That is why the calendar of Her Majesty’s appointments is to be revised for the time being.”

The family must take over the queen
Whenever possible, Queen Elizabeth II attends events in front of the public. However, the obligations that you will have to stand or walk for hours will be taken over by heir to the throne Prince Charles (73), Duchess Camilla (74), Prince William (39) and Princess Anne (71).
“They have already taken on a lot of responsibility and one can imagine that they will continue to do so in Her Majesty’s spirit,” the source in the palace said. “I do not rule out that the Queen will continue to take on smaller tasks.”
Does Prince Philip’s memorial service suit you?
The Queen is still mentally well and caring as ever. However, physically, she was no longer as strong as before. This became especially evident when she had to cancel her Commonwealth Day engagement on Monday.
However, she did not miss the opportunity to address her people with a message. “In this year of my Platinum Jubilee, I have had the pleasure of renewing the promise I made in 1947 that my life would forever be devoted to service,” she wrote in the letter, which was also shared on the royal family’s Instagram channel. “I declare that my whole life, whether short or long, shall be devoted to service,” said the then princess in a letter.
It is also said that it is important for her to give strength and hope. “In these trying times, I hope you will draw strength and inspiration from what unites us as we work together towards a healthy, sustainable and prosperous future for all.”
The king has been suffering from various health problems since last fall and is dependent on a walking stick. Her biggest concern is said to be that she will not be able to attend the memorial service for her late husband Prince Philip (99) on March 29.
It was announced yesterday that Queen Elizabeth can no longer walk her dogs. In addition, royal experts fear she will no longer recognize her granddaughter Lillibit (9 months), daughter of Prince Harry (37) and Duchess Meghan (40). (grb)
