It has been only five days since Elizabeth II, 95, had to put a stop to her hectic schedule by medical prescription. Wednesday night the British sovereign was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital to “do some preliminary tests” and remained in the health center for a few hours for “practical reasons.” In addition, the doctors prescribed her to rest for a few days. Although he reluctantly obeyed orders and had to suspend a trip planned for the end of last week to Northern Ireland. His admission had nothing to do with the coronavirus and less than a week later the first images of the Queen have been produced, who has participated in his first public act that has been carried out virtually.
In a yellow dress and a three-strand pearl necklace, the Queen has participated in a videoconference from Windsor Castle, to welcome the South Korean Ambassador, Gunn Kim, and HeeJung Lee who were in a room at Buckingham Palace. Afterwards, he has continued to telematically dispatch the Swiss ambassador, Markus Leitner, accompanied by his wife, Nicole, from the same palatial hall as his South Korean counterpart. The last public act in which the monarch participated was at a night reception, on October 19, where he met world leaders like Bill Gates. Although after returning from the clinic he had already performed the lighter tasks, the truth is that this is the first time he has appeared in public since then. The appearance of Carlos de Inglaterra’s mother in these remote audiences is unbeatable and she has even been seen smiling when she was portrayed on the other side of the screen.
The sovereign is expected at the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow next week, either in person or via video. The final decision will be made in a few days. There he will participate, between 1 and 5 November in various acts together with Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Since he returned to Balmoral, where he usually spends every summer, Elizabeth II has had a tight schedule of institutional tasks, which seems to have made a dent in her frenetic pace of life. In addition to canceling your trip to Northern Ireland, you also she has been forced to suspend her daily routines, such as walking her dogs near Frogmore House, Windsor House where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex lived. These daily walks are thought by some to be a “tonic” for the Queen and have helped her stay in such a healthy state.
On October 12, the Queen surprised when first appeared in 17 years with a cane to attend a church service at Westminster Abbey. It seems that he turned to him to achieve greater comfort and safety when walking on the cobblestone floor from the entrance to the temple. Despite her advanced age, in five years she will become a centenary, she continues to smash records and next year Great Britain prepares to celebrate his Platinum Jubilee (70 years on the throne) in style. Always with a keen sense of humor, the dean of queens she has rejected the ‘Old Woman of the Year’ award, given by an English magazine, because “you are as old as you feel.”
