Concerns about the monarch’s health have increased following the cancellation of Queen Elizabeth’s attendance at the State Opening of Parliament on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. A virtual appointment, which she now took, lets you breathe a sigh of relief.

On Monday, May 9, 2022, Queen Elizabeth, 96, caused concern among the British people and Royal fans: The Queen announced that she would not be present at the opening of Parliament on May 10, 2022 and therefore not her traditional “Queen’s Speech”, the Prime Minister’s government statement, is read out. The reason for the short-term cancellation is, as has often been the case in the past, her health condition.

A palace spokesman announced the short-term cancellation, as Royal expert Omid Scobie announced via Twitter. “The Queen continues to suffer from intermittent mobility problems and has reluctantly decided in consultation with her doctors that she will not attend the State Opening of Parliament tomorrow,” the statement said. At Queen Elizabeth’s request, Prince Charles, 73, read the speech in the presence of Prince William, 39. Charles did not wear the crown. Instead, he took a seat in his naval uniform alongside his wife Duchess Camilla, 74.

The opening of parliament is one of the monarch’s most important dates. During her reign she failed to do so only twice. In 1959 and 1963 she skipped the ceremony because she was heavily pregnant. It is therefore hardly surprising that her current cancellation is causing concern.

Now there seems to be reason to breathe a sigh of relief. The Queen is said to have held a virtual appointment with the Privy Council on Wednesday 11 May. She seems to be doing a little better the day after the opening of parliament had to take place without her. Her phone call with Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been postponed. The reason for this, however, lies in his absence. He is currently on a 24 hour trip in Sweden and Finland.

What does the cancellation mean for the Queen’s jubilee?

Queen Elizabeth has been suffering from back and hip pain for months, which severely limits her mobility. She is making more and more appointments via video call from her home in Windsor. At several public appearances, such as the memorial service for Prince Philip, † 99, the 96-year-old was dependent on a walking stick. But in the past few weeks, the suspicion has arisen that her health is improving again. It also involved Prince Harry, 37, who told the Today show in April about his secret meeting with his grandmother: “It was great to be with her. It was just so nice to see her. .. She’s in great shape.” Words that reassured Royal fans.

What is certain, however, is that the British Queen continues to struggle with her health. But what does that mean for the celebrations of her 70th jubilee? It is planned, among other things, that Queen Elizabeth will appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace on June 2nd at the “Trooping the Color” military parade. In view of the current surprising cancellation, there is increasing concern that the monarch will also have to cancel events on her platinum anniversary. Whether this will actually be the case remains to be seen.
