Health concerns seemed to have gotten very real for Queen Elizabeth in the last couple of weeks. After the 95-year-old monarch spent the night at the hospital on October 20th information regarding her health has become hard to come by. People have naturally started getting worried. The monarch has had to cancel multiple appearances and trips in the last couple of weeks. However, she has remained active in meeting people via Zoom. Now, she has also been spotted back to her usual hobby of driving around her Windsor estate in the iconic green Jaguar. According to official reports, she even has a set date when she hopes to return to public events.
The Queen May Have To Give Up Some Favorite Hobbies
Perhaps the worst thing to come out of this recent health scare for the Queen is the fact that she may have to give up some of her long-time favorite hobbies. Local press across the pond have reported that The Queen’s doctors have advised her to cut down on horseback riding. Horses in general have been a long-time passion for Her Majesty, and many members of the Royal Family. With Princess Anne and her daughter even competing in the Olympics in equestrian events. It’s not just horses though that her doctors have advised her against. It seems her doctors don’t want her drinking martinis anymore! That may be a tougher ask.
How Is Her Majesty Actually Doing?
Clear information on The Queen’s health probably won’t be something we’ll ever get. Even about a month ago when she was spotted walking around with a cane the official explanation was that she was just using it to make it easier to stand up for long periods of time. Britan’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson did give a quick update on The Queen saying that he had spoken to Her Majesty. The Prime Minister mentioned,
“I spoke to Her Majesty, and she’s on very good form,”
Queen Elizabeth Hopes To Be Back In Public In A Couple of Weeks
The palace has described the Queen’s current working day as a mix of “light desk work” with some virtual meetings sprinkled on top. However, they are hopeful that The Queen will be able to return to public events on November 14th. She is set to attend the, National Service of Remembrance. In the last few weeks though the Queen has even skipped her usual church days. Which, is certainly not something that is typical of the monarch. The palace mentioned on the Queen’s return,
“It remains The Queen’s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on 14th November,”

Prince Charles & Prince William Will Continue To Appear On Behalf Of The Queen
With The Queen having to watch from the sidelines it’s been both Prince Charles, and Prince William who has stepped in to fill the void on behalf of Her Majesty. They’ve appeared together alongside their significant others Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, and Kate Duchess of Cambridge in events that range from a James Bond premiere to the most recent United Nations Climate Change Conference in Scotland. The sight of the father and son stepping in for The Queen is likely one we’ll see a lot more of moving forward.
