In fact, she carried out her first duties since the health scare, having a virtual chat with Estonian and Spanish ambassadors as she sat from Windsor Castle.

Elizabeth can't afford to get sick, as aside from her age, she has a busy year ahead of her. However, it's also been a tough time since she no longer has husband Prince Philip by her side.

"She had her first Christmas on her own without Prince Philip, she will have her first birthday, she'll remember Prince Philip on what would have been his 101st birthday," noted her former secretary Dickie Arbiter. "There's a lot of firsts that the Queen has to confront. They probably mean a lot more to someone in their 90s than someone very much younger. Widowhood is lonely, but when you're 95, I imagine it's even lonelier."

"She's very stoic. She's very pragmatic in the way that she went through the Golden Jubilee in 2002 with first her sister dying and then her mother dying," he added. "It's very tough when you're very much in the public eye and these anniversaries are coming up."
