Queen Elizabeth, who has slowed the pace of her official engagements after health concerns, granted an audience at Windsor Castle on Wednesday.
Each of his appearances is now an event. Queen Elizabeth, briefly hospitalized at the end of October, has since greatly slowed down the pace of her official commitments. If the 95-year-old sovereign has been seen several times in public – she was this weekend at the double baptism of her last two great-grandchildren – she is now scrutinized at each of her appearances with some concern.
Queen Elizabeth granted an audience to Andrew Bailey, Governor of the Bank of England, at Windsor Castle on Wednesday. The image, relayed on social networks, by the official Buckingham account, is very similar to that of November 17, when the sovereign received General Sir Nick Carter.
“As Head of State, his Majesty regularly meets diplomatic, religious, military and political figures” specifies the caption on Twitter, as if to show that the queen has not yet fully passed the hand.
His son, Prince Charles, who will accede to him, but also his daughter-in-law, Camilla Parker-Bowles, yet gradually take over from the queen of incredible longevity. It will indeed reach the 70th anniversary of the reign next year.
The state of health of the sovereign worries since she was put to rest by his doctors and passed one night in the hospital at the end of October. Sunday, she was to make her return in public by observing from a balcony a ceremony in tribute to the victims of wars. Corn his participation was canceled at the last minute, the palace explaining that she had hurt her back.
Very busy at the beginning of October, the queen’s agenda was greatly reduced. Elizabeth II notably canceled his trip to COP26, in Glasgow (Scotland), where Princes Charles and William represented the royal family, as well as a visit to Northern Ireland. She has since held hearings by videoconference. At the beginning of November, she had been seen alone driving a car. Images that reassured the British.
