“Of course, she has a team of doctors to lean on whenever needed and a support staff that’s second to none,” the source explained. “But thus far Her Majesty has been handling this without any fuss or need to involve too many others in her recovery.”

“She’s showed extraordinary courage and is thankful for all the love and support she’s received, and as long as she feels able to work that’s what she’ll continue to [do],” the source added. “It’s typical of her selfless character and everyone is just in awe of her resolve and bravery. She’s truly one of a kind and an example to everyone around her.”

The day before, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen would take a step back from her duties.

Though details are sparse about the Queen's condition, biographer Robert Jobson believes it's not necessary for anyone to panic.

"There is no doubt The Prince of Wales and his family will be concerned by this development and won’t be complacent. Charles often spends longer at Windsor Castle when he visits these days, so that he can enjoy quality time with his mother," the expert noted. "Kate, Duchess of Cambridge flies to Copenhagen this week for a series of solo engagements. If there was a serious cause for concern, I am sure that overseas visit would have been postponed."
