Queen will miss more key royal events as health concerns soar following new cancellations

NewsQueen will miss more key royal events as health concerns soar following new cancellations

Royal fans will rejoice at the news the garden parties at the Queen’s royal residences in London and Edinburgh are to resume after a two-year stop prompted by the pandemic. However, their happiness will likely be marred by concerns for Her Majesty’s health conditions, as the Palace announced the sovereign won’t attend any of the official parties.

A statement released on May 5 read: “Her Majesty The Queen will be represented by other Members of the Royal Family at this year’s Garden Parties, with details on attendance to be confirmed in due course.” 

The Queen has been missing most engagements outside of palace walls since late October. 

Concerns for her health were initially sparked on October 20, when she pulled out of a two-day trip to Northern Ireland to follow her doctors’ advice to rest for a few days. 

It later emerged the monarch had been taken to hospital on that same day to run a few “preliminary tests”, the nature of which was never revealed. 

Earlier that month the monarch was seen attending events using a light walking stick, which a Palace source said she had adopted for “comfort” rather than for any specific ailment. 

Over the following week, the sovereign cancelled the public appearances she had already scheduled to attend – including a trip to Glasgow for the evening reception at the COP26 summit.

However, she continued to perform her duties as sovereign and met, via video link or in person, a number of diplomats and award winners. 

In February, the Queen hosted a reception at Sandringham House on the eve of the 70th anniversary of her Accession Day.
