In October, Queen Elizabeth used a cane in public for the first time in 17 years, which sent people into spiral that her health is deteriorating. However, expert Camilla Tominey believes the monarch is doing just fine.
"She’s ninety-five. I think she’s just perhaps got some mobility issues," she said. "We saw this with the introduction of the walking stick. Frankly, it’s a miracle that’s only just been introduced.”
Later on, the Queen was told to not make the trip to Northern Ireland, and shortly after, she pulled out of the COP26 Climate Summit Conference.
"Following on from their recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty's doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks," Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Friday, October 29. "The doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not to undertake any official visits. Her Majesty regrets that this means she will be unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday, November 13."
The message continued, "However, it remains The Queen's firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on November 14."
On November 4, it was revealed that the Queen made her way to her Sandringham Estate — a place that is near and dear to her heart.
"The Queen had been hoping she would still be able to spend the weekend at Sandringham and was delighted her doctors gave her the all clear to travel," a source said. “Her Majesty is very much looking forward to hosting her family at her Norfolk home for the Christmas holiday and there is much preparation to be done in time to accommodate everyone who has been invited."
“The Queen has many happy memories of being at Sandringham with the family over Christmas and was in the firm belief that she was far better off being there in person to oversee everything as much as possible," the insider continued. “But she traveled on the understanding with her doctors that she continues to rest as advised.”
