Since Queen Elizabeth has been staying inside more and more, it looks like she will hold meetings from her home going forward.
"People are going to be coming to the Queen rather than her traveling to them," royal expert Camilla Tominey shared. "I think we're going to see more of the Queen in situ, and she might get to where she needs to be in private and then be photographed on the spot. That being said, we had some lovely photographs last week of an audience in her own living room. That's going to be happening more frequently now."
"When it comes to the royal diary, they've got to prioritize quality over quantity," she continued.
But there will be some important events the 95-year-old will be at. For example, she made an effort to show up to Prince Philip's memorial service on March 29.
"Despite her own discomfort, she was determined to be there. Yes, concessions had to be made to ensure she was as comfortable as possible but it's these types of engagements she will move heaven and earth to attend," the journalist noted. "The monarchy is changing before our very eyes and arguably that's no bad thing. What we think is the Queen isn't having health problems but mobility problems — she can't stand for long periods or walk for long distances and therefore accommodations are being made."
"I think the palace are handling this very much as they did when the Duke of Edinburgh retired and he was able to say which engagements he did or didn't want to attend at very short notice," she added.
Prior to the family shindig, it was unclear if the Queen was going to attend, as she recently recovered from COVID-19 and she is having trouble walking.
"You have to be realistic. [She is] just weeks away from 96, she has accepted her own limitations," Russell Myers, who is the Daily Mirror's royal editor, said. "She’s having issues moving around, [and is] described by people at the Palace as having good days and less good days ... I don’t think we’ll ever see her step back, but we probably will see her less and less."
