Recent health concerns have a lot of people wondering about the well-being of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch and she has pulled out of attending an annual service.

Her Majesty will not be attending the Maundy Day church service and will be represented for the first time by Prince Charles, according to Buckingham Palace.

Today marks one year since the passing of The Queen’s husband Prince Philip on April 9, 2021. The two were married for 73 years before Philip died aged 99.

In the memorial, the Queen was seen controversially supported down the aisle by a walking stick and Prince Andrew.

Andrew’s place at the memorial left concerns about the health of the Queen, who needed assistance to get down the aisle of Westminster Abbey

Before the service, it was reportedly up in the air for the Queen, 95, if she would actually be able to attend the memorial due to believed problems regarding her movement.

Are there concerns for the Queen’s health?

The UK’s longest-reigning monarch is celebrating her platinum jubilee this year, but is increasingly limited in the events she is able to attend and will not be attending the Maunday Day service.

There have also been some more concerns about her health after recent scares.

Before the recent reports about her mobility, the Queen tested positive for Covid in February, but only had “mild cold-like symptoms”.

She spent a night in hospital in October last year after undergoing medical checks and was forced to miss the Remembrance Sunday service in November with a strained back.

In the lead up to the memorial for Prince Philip, the Palace was reported to be taking things “day-by-day” in matters regarding the Queen’s health and there have been claims she is using a wheelchair, though she has recently been seen using to stick.

Is the Queen performing full duties?

The Queen is limited in the duties she can perform, with most of her appearances now made at Windsor



After 70 years on the throne and at the age of 95, the Queen is continuing to perform duties, though it is limited in what she can still do in terms of public appearances.

There has been a number of cancellations and she was forced to perform ‘”light duties” when she was recovering from Covid, before resuming her planned schedule in March.

Cancellations appear to be fairly normal for a person who is 95, and will celebrate their 96th birth on April 21.

In March, the Queen made Windsor Castle her permanent home and will no longer use Buckingham Palace as a residence.

According to the Sunday Times, the movie is because the palace is currently undergoing a refurbishment and it is no longer practical for the Queen to stay there, with the redo expected to be finished in 2027.
