After an overnight stay in hospital forced her to cancel her trip to Northern Ireland earlier this week, it’s been reported that Queen Elizabeth will be cutting back on her workload amid concerns for her health.

Sir Edward Young, the 95-year-old monarchs’ private secretary, is said to be under pressure to reduce her diary to only key events like her Platinum Jubilee to celebrate 70 years as Queen next year.

According to The Sunday Telegraph, there are also plans in place for the Queen to be accompanied by other members of her family when she attends royal duties so that if she takes ill the event will not have to be cancelled.

The royal’s trip to London’s private King Edward VII’s Hospital was initially kept a secret but the Palace issued a statement on Thursday evening after The Sun newspaper broke the news.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: ‘Following medical advice to rest for a few days, the Queen attended hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some preliminary investigations, returning to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today, and remains in good spirits.’

At the moment, Queen Elizabeth is due to attend the UN Climate Change Conference on November 1 but it is believed that a reevaluation will be made as to whether or not her health will permit it.

The head of state has an increased workload these days due to many events that couldn’t go ahead throughout the pandemic now being reorganised.

Already this month, she has had 13 meetings and has attended seven major events.

‘They have to find some kind of balance,’ Sally Bedell Smith, a biographer of the Queen, told the Dialy Mail. ‘I hope they have learnt from the pretty punishing pace she kept over the course of a month that that is maybe just too much.’
