Queen Elizabeth’s duties canceled after health issues

In recent months, the Queen has been absent from important events due to persistent mobility issues. But now his work has been officially reduced amid these health issues.

The monarchy annual report, which was published last week, revealed that Queen Elizabeth II’s role as head of state has been changed from 13 points to a less precise description. And the duties the 96-year-old “must complete” have also been reduced, according to the sunday telegraph. (The Post has contacted the Queen’s press office for comment.)

It is the first time in more than a decade that formal changes have been made to his job description. And it’s an acknowledgment of the long-reigning monarch’s health issues.

For months the Queen, who lost her husband Prince Philip last April, has been absent from high-profile events and has ceded some commitments to her family. In May, Prince Charles officially opened the British Parliament. It was the first time in nearly 60 years that her mother had not attended the ceremony.

Last month, the Queen also missed the first day of Royal Ascot due to mobility issues, and during her platinum jubilee celebration, she absented himself from a religious service due to “discomfort.” She then appeared in the fence parade by hologram. The proud royal also used a cane for a formal portrait during the Order of the Garter service at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle in June.

Last month royal expert Daniela Elser wrote an op-ed for the Australian outlet News.com.AUsaying images of the Queen greeting the Governor of New South Wales, Margaret Beazley in the UK were “nothing short of alarming”.

Elser compared the photos to those taken nearly a year ago.

“The difference is truly startling,” Elser wrote. “Over the next 12 months Her Majesty would appear to have become noticeably more stooped, much leaner and overall appear to have shrunk.”

However, last week she traveled to Scotland for its annual Holyrood weekthat celebrates national culture, in an eye-catching monochromatic lavender ensemble.
