Since her hospital scare in October, Her Majesty the Queen has been under strict orders from doctors to take it easy.
And according to insiders, she may not be seen in public until next year.
The Queen’s diary of public engagements has been mostly wiped for the remainder of 2020 as royal experts say she’s ‘entered a new phase’,
Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, told the Express: “I don’t think we will see her out and about doing anything officially, even if she recovers from the sprained back.”
Our 95-year-old monarch was forced to cancel her annual appearance at the Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday due to her injury, with Prince Charles stepping up to lay a wreath on her behalf.
But Her Majesty is still in good spirits and has ‘no intention of stepping back’. A palace source told the Mirror: “The Queen remains sharp as a pin but the reality is she needs to take a period of rest following an extremely busy start to normal duties after coronavirus restrictions were lifted.
“The senior members of the family are all aligned in that they will be available to help out wherever they can for as long as is needed.”
On top of her health scare, the Queen faces her first wedding anniversary without Prince Philip on 20 November.
The difficult milestone will mark 74 years of marriage to the late Duke of Edinburgh, who passed away in April at the age of 99.
And as Charles and William take on royal duties, experts think Kate Middleton and the kids will be the Queen’s comfort.
Royal author Duncan Larcombe told OK!: “I think Kate will be considered the right person to offer support to the Queen on what will be a poignant reminder of a long and happy marriage.”
It’s thought that while she usually travels to Sandringham (Prince Philip’s favourite place) for Christmas, before resuming public duties in February, she could stay at Windsor.
Prince Charles has been keeping a keen eye on his mother to make sure she follows doctors’ orders to rest, the Mirror reported.
He called his mother at Windsor Castle to “make sure to check in and was completely reassured of her condition by Her Majesty herself.”
Charles and Camilla set off on a Middle East tour today and the pair, along with William, Kate, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, have been dubbed ‘The Magnificent Seven’ by palace insiders.
