Queen's diary to be 'carefully examined' to Christmas and next year after doctors ordered Her Majesty to rest

THE QUEEN'S diary is to be "carefully examined" to Christmas and next year after her doctors imposed strict orders to rest.

Royal sources revealed to The Mirror that they have been instructed to take a "careful and cautious approach" to Her Majesty's diary in the future.


Palace officials will create engagements for the Queen based on how she is feeling and whether she needs to travel.

It is understood that there will be an "ever greater collaboration" between senior members of the royal family on future engagements, reports The Mirror.

“The senior royals as a unit have collectively discussed a greater need for collaboration in their projects together, whether that is explicitly working on the same topic or supporting each other on an ad-hoc basis, different plans will be drawn up to the ones that currently exist," a royal source said.

“After the coronavirus restrictions have ended they all feel the need to get out and do more.

“The Queen is aware of the need to rest and that is what she is doing now.

“No doubt she will be back when she feels ready."

On Tuesday it was announced that the Queen had pulled out of meeting world leaders at the climate change gathering in Glasgow after being advised to rest by doctors.

The 95-year-old monarch will instead record a video message for the summit.

Sources close to the Queen said she “regretfully decided” not to travel but they stressed she is in "good spirits". Royal experts said the move was a "sensible precaution".

Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, the Queen's former press secretary Dickie Arbiter said: "Given that there are reported to be 30,000 people pouring into Glasgow for this particular conference I think it's been the palace and her medical team being safer than sorry."

He added: "There is concern that the infections will spike during the course of this COP26 conference. So they are keeping the Queen safe, keeping her safe in the bubble.

"She will carry on working, as we saw her yesterday, doing her audiences with ambassadors, doing her red boxes. But I think taking her to COP26 is a step too far."

The Sun revealed on Friday how Her Majesty spent a night at King Edward VII hospital in London after having what palace sources described as “preliminary investigations” following health worries.

Buckingham Palace has given no further information on her hospital stay. We also reported how the Queen missed a trip to church on Sunday.

And she cancelled a two-day visit to Northern Ireland.

But on Tuesday the Queen seemed back to her best as she held two virtual audiences.

Dressed in yellow, she spoke to the ambassadors of North Korea and Switzerland as part of her role as Head of State.

'DISCOMFORT'

And The Sun revealed yesterday that the Queen was forced to give up horse riding two months ago after suffering “discomfort”.

Her Majesty was told to rein in her equestrianism in early September but is determined to be back in the saddle again soon.

The Sun understands the monarch, a keen horsewoman and avid racing fan, has not been out on a nag since her summer break in Scotland.

A Balmoral source said: “She was in quite a bit of discomfort. She adores riding and it has been part of her ritual for most of her life.

"She has been extremely disappointed not to go riding since the beginning of September.”

But royal insiders insist the Queen has refused to give up her favourite pursuit and plans to return after rest and recuperation.

Buckingham Palace has been contacted for comment.
