Queen Elizabeth is reportedly taking a step back from her royal duties as the health of her husband, Prince Philip, continues to deteriorate. The Duke of Edinburgh turned 99 on June 10 and has been retired from his royal duties for three years. The queen also reportedly realizes she is now nearing the end of her reign and will soon be passing the crown onto her son, Prince Charles.

A source spoke to "Closer Weekly" and said that Prince Philip "doesn't have the same energy" and is doing his best to "look after himself." The source added that he "knows his days are numbered and is trying to make the most of the time he has left with the queen."

The source also said the queen is preparing to "pass the crown to Charles sooner rather than later. Charles has already taken on many of her duties, and since marrying Camilla [Parker Bowles], he has become so much more self-assured. Having a strong woman by his side has helped him to become more confident."

Prince Charles had his own health scare in March when he tested positive for the coronavirus. The book Finding Freedom, a new biography about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, reveals that Harry was quite concerned about the COVID-19 diagnosis.

"On the afternoon of March 24 when they received a call from the palace: Charles had tested positive for coronavirus and was headed into isolation," the book reads. "His father, who was 71 years old at the time and so more at risk for complications from the virus, had been out at public engagements until a couple of weeks earlier. Though doctors described the Prince of Wales as in 'good spirits' and his symptoms as mild, it was still enough to fill Harry with worry."

Prince William, who has been sharing much of the official royal duties with Prince Charles, was also worried when he heard the news.

"I have to admit at first I was quite concerned," William told the BBC in April. "He fits the profile of somebody of the age he's at, which is you know fairly risky, and so I was a little bit worried."
