Prince Charles Reminds People “It’s Not Easy” at 95 For The Queen
It seems like every new day, royal fans around the world hold their breaths to get “happy” updates about the Queen’s health. And while we may not want her to go so soon, Prince Charles is reminding people that she’s 95.
Following the death of her husband, Prince Philip, earlier this year at the age of 99, Prince Charles and Prince William are being prepared for a major change in the monarchy.
Prince Charles Carries on with Royal Tour despite Queen’s Health Scares
Since the past few weeks, the Queen’s health scare has been deepening. It reached a peak when Her Majesty missed Remembrance Sunday on November 14, even though it was previously announced that it was her firm intention to be present during the ceremony.
It’s been almost a month since the Queen carried out any public royal engagements and royal fans are wondering if there’s more to the Queen’s health than is let on.
Amid worries over her health and speculations that she would likely be seen more on video than in the flesh for the remainder of her reign, the Queen is said to have approved (and even blessed) her eldest child Prince Charles’ royal tour.
Prince Charles, alongside his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, travelled overseas for a four-day royal tour for the first time since the pandemic kicked in. The pair traveled to Jordan and then on to Egypt, with the climate crisis as the main theme of their visits.
When the Prince was asked about his mother, he replied that she’s alright, adding, “Once you get to 95, it’s not quite as easy as it used to be. It’s bad enough at 73.”
This is coming after the Palace released a statement on the morning of Remembrance Sunday to say that the Queen had sprained her back and so would not be able to attend the ceremony.
Prior to spraining her back, the Queen had been advised to rest by her medical staff following her hospitalization.
While we do want the Queen to stay with us a while longer, the 95-year-old may have hinted about the inevitable in her statement on Tuesday. “None of us can slow the passage of time,” she said in a message read by her youngest child Prince Edward at the Synod event on November 16.
This is the first time that the Queen has missed the Synod event in its 50-year history. The coming year would mark Queen Elizabeth’s 70th year on the throne, and the milestone will be celebrated with a massive four-day bank holiday.
