Queen Elizabeth II will not attend events under a new royal plan, amid mobility concerns

The Queen of England is stepping back from public life, under a new royal plan, that will see the Queen not attend future events until confirmed by the Palace on the day.

The new rule likely means we’ll see even less of the Queen, with her Majesty’s presence at public engagements not being guaranteed.

The public should assume she will not be attending unless stated otherwise.

If the Queen does attend, she will be accompanied by a member of the Royal family.

Despite usually making an appearance, the Queen missed the Easter Sunday Service in Windsor.

Health scares

This follows several health scares, including covid in March this year. The 95-year-old Monarch has also pulled out of several recent engagements at the last minute due to ongoing mobility issues.

Aides of the Royal are hopeful she will be able to attend some of the important events to mark her Platinum Jubilee year.

Visit from Harry and Meghan

The changes to the Monarch’s schedule come as Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle popped in for a visit to the 95-year-old. 

The couple has only visited the United Kingdom a few times since the covid-pandemic began, once for the funeral of Prince Philip. 

New reports suggest Harry and Meghan have promised the Queen she will meet her great-grandchildren Archie and Lilibet ‘in the near future’.

The duo paid a visit to Queen Elizabeth on their way to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games. 

Harry started the iconic Invictus Games back in 2014 and has carried through the tradition. 

The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women.
