Fans are more worried than ever about the Queen

Queen Elizabeth II has endured many challenging times during her seven decades as reigning monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. However, the last few years have proven to be particularly difficult. She was robbed over the death of Prince Philip in April 2021. His funeral was held during the pandemic lockdown, meaning only close family could attend and social distancing was strictly enforced. It was impossible not to be moved by the images of the grieving widow, sitting all alone in a pew, wiping tears from her eyes.

Her longtime assistant, Angela Kelly, claimed HRH was so heartbroken that she was unable to speak after the service. “I helped her with her coat and hat and no words were spoken,” Kelly wrote in her book The Other Side of the Coin, The Queen, The Dresser, and the Wardrobe (via Hello!). “The Queen then went into her sitting room, closed the door behind her and was alone with her own thoughts.”

Queen Elizabeth’s COVID-19 battle in February left her looking frail and weak. Prince Charles began representing his mother at public events while she continued to struggle with health issues. The Queen was photographed meeting Britain’s new Prime Minister, Liz Truss, in Balmoral on Wednesday. However, the Independent reported that Elizabeth was forced to cancel a later meeting on the advice of her doctors. With the 96-year-old remaining in Balmoral under the supervision of a medical team, royal fans are more concerned than ever for the Queen.

Queen Elizabeth II has seemed weaker by the day since the death of Prince Philip. The couple had been married for 73 years and, as the BBC notes, “It was a marriage built on love.” Despite the Queen’s ailing health, the public was still shocked when television programming was cut short to report the news on Thursday that she was under medical supervision at Balmoral.

Royal fans became more concerned after it was revealed immediate family had rushed to get close to them at the Scottish estate. Deadline reports that BBC1 has suspended all scheduled programming for the day as it continues to cover the monarch’s wellbeing. The UK’s four other terrestrial television stations are also interrupting regular programming to carry out updates. “Following further checks this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical supervision,” the palace announced (via BBC). They added that she was in a “comfortable” state.

Six in 10 Britons support the monarchy, according to a YouGov poll, although the majority are from the older generation. Despite differing beliefs about the continued viability of The Firm, Queen Elizabeth II is particularly loved by the citizens and respected for her unwavering sense of duty throughout her reign. However, the future of the royal family could be at stake. According to YouGov, the queen has a favorability rating of 69, while future king, Prince Charles, scored a meager 19.
