    Queen Elizabeth II’s Role Formally Rewritten Amid Health Concerns: All You Need To Know

    There has been an official shakeup in Britain’s royal family. Queen Elizabeth has been limiting her public appearances since earlier this year. She previously experienced several health issues including testing positive for COVID-19 in February.

    The monarch is being nursed back to health. She will be taking it easy from now on. Her workload will also be getting a little less demanding.

    The palace has officially changed the monarch’s role as head of state to a more condensed description, according to The Sunday Telegraph. The outlet noted that the annual report of the monarchy included a change from the 13 bulleted points previously used to detail the queen’s position. The duties she “must fulfill are also removed from the list.

    A source told Us Weekly that the queen was more focused on her recovery. “She’s showed extraordinary courage and is thankful for all the love and support she’s received, and as long as she feels able to work that’s what she’ll continue to [do],” the insider shared last month. “It’s typical of her selfless character and everyone is just in awe of her resolve and bravery. She’s truly one of a kind and an example to everyone around her.”

    It was later found out that the queen was advised to rest. This was ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations. “The Queen has been advised by her loved ones and trusted advisors to go a lot easier on herself, even if it means missing more functions than she would like,” the insider disclosed in March. “The other factor here is that she wanted to be as close to full strength as possible for the Jubilee celebrations, which she’s been looking forward to immensely.”

    Elizabeth 96, celebrated her 70 years on the throne in June. She joined her family in London. Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla showed their support, as did Prince William and Duchess Kate. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made several appearances with their children Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4.

    During the festivities, Elizabeth chose to watch the ‘Trooping the Color’ from the Buckingham Palace balcony before taking her rest from other activities due to “discomfort.”

    The Queen greatly enjoyed today’s Birthday Parade and flypast but did experience some discomfort,” a statement from Buckingham Palace read after the queen chose to not appear at St. Paul’s Cathedral. “Taking into account the journey and activity required to participate in tomorrow’s National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, Her Majesty with great reluctance has concluded that she will not attend.”

    The queen, who also missed the ‘Party in the Palace’ concert, choose to make a surprise appearance on the final day of the royal celebration. Her ailments, however, didn’t keep Her Majesty from meeting great-granddaughter Lilibet during the week of events. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, were also among the ones in town to toast the Queen’s legacy.
