Prince Charles Says Queen Elizabeth Is Doing 'Alright' Amid Recent Health Woes: 'It's Not Quite As Easy As It Used To Be'
After a couple of scary weeks, Prince Charles revealed that his mother is doing "alright" amid her recent health woes.
The 73-year-old — who is currently in Jordan with his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall — gave an update on Queen Elizabeth, 95.
"Once you get to 95, it's not quite as easy as it used to be," he quipped. "It's bad enough at 73."
On Thursday, November 18, the Queen held a virtual meeting.
"Today The Queen held a virtual Audience with His Excellency Mr. Nguyen Hoang Long, Ambassador from Vietnam," a caption read via The Royal Family's Twitter page. "There are more than 170 Ambassadors and High Commissions based in London. Each have an Audience of The Queen after taking up their role."
The day before, she was photographed up and about when speaking to General Sir Nick Carter.
"The Queen today received General Sir Nick Carter for an Audience at Windsor Castle upon the relinquishment of his appointment as Chief of the Defence Staff," the caption read.

In late October, it was announced that the Queen had been hospitalized, but she was on the mend. She then flew to her Sandringham Estate to relax.
The monarch was supposed to attend her first in-person event on November 14, but the plans suddenly changed.
"The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph," a statement read. "Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service. As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by The Prince of Wales. His Royal Highness, along with The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Earl and Countess of Wessex, The Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned."
