Elizabeth II very diminished: The Queen confides that she has difficulty “moving”.

Elizabeth II made some confidences about her health condition this Wednesday, February 16. The news is not reassuring.

The state of health of Elizabeth II worries many since she is 95 years old. In recent months, the sovereign has made a series of cancellations and Buckingham Palace had indicated that she had spent a night in hospital last October. What to worry the royal family but also the British. This Wednesday, February 16, she made her first public appearance and, for the occasion, she received Major General Eldon Millar, in charge of liaison between the Queen and the armed forces, and his predecessor Rear Admiral James Macleod, at Windsor Castle, her main residence. A video of the meeting was shared on social networks and we can see Elizabeth II welcoming them, standing, smiling, with a patterned dress and a cane in her hands. At first glance, the queen seems to be doing very well, but she said to her guests: “As you can see, I can not move. These words did not go unnoticed. According to the British agency PA, the Queen of England suffers from a “slight stiffness”, which does not seem to worry her or the royal family much. This new appearance is also a way to reassure the British people because, despite the stiffness, Elizabeth II has kept her commitment.

She is being watched. In recent months, the appearances of the Queen of England have become very rare. Her state of health has been the main concern of the royal family but also of the British. However, the palace has recently announced that the Queen will resume her public activities. Indeed, there will be a ceremony at Westminster Abbey on March 29 and Elizabeth II will not miss it for anything. It is a tribute to the memory of Prince Philip, her husband, who died in April 2020. Before that, a diplomatic meeting should take place in Windsor on March 2 and the Queen has confirmed her presence. The same goes for March 14, for the Commonwealth ceremony. Recently, Elizabeth II gave them a new scare since Buckingham Palace had announced that Prince Charles tested positive for Covid, for the second time since the beginning of the pandemic. He had been in contact with his mother only 48 hours earlier and Elizabeth II was therefore placed under surveillance, as reported by Rebecca English. However, the entourage of the sovereign had affirmed that she had “no symptoms” without specifying if she had performed a PCR test and if it was positive or negative. This new appearance is therefore rather reassuring.

Elizabeth II: when will her Platinum Jubilee take place?

2022 marks the 70th year of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne. She succeeded her father, George VI, on February 6, 1952, at the age of 25. Since her coronation in 1953, the widow of Prince Philip has represented the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Now 95 years old, she has no intention of passing the torch and announced last November that she would celebrate her Platinum Jubilee from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June. An event highly anticipated by the British people but also by the royal family.
