On Wednesday, the Queen will talk by phone with Prime Minister Boris Johnson for their weekly audience, and she is also expected to have further virtual engagements scheduled.However, these, as well as the Queen’s big engagement, are likely to be reviewed immediately.

On March 2, she will host the Diplomatic Reception at Windsor Castle, where she will greet hundreds of diplomats.

The Queen will also attend the Commonwealth Ceremony on March 14 at Westminster Abbey, followed by the Duke of Edinburgh’s memorial service on March 29 at the Abbey.Professor Sir Huw Thomas, head of the Medical Household and Physician to the Queen, is likely to be in charge of the Queen’s medics, who will be keeping a careful check on the head of state and monitoring her development.

She has spoken up about her mobility challenges, informing two people about it.

The Queen, whose husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, died in April, spent much of the epidemic in the protection of the Berkshire royal home, surrounded by “HMS Bubble,” her dwindling entourage of committed employees.

During the epidemic, the queen, who evaded getting Covid for over two years, has functioned as a symbol of national stability, delivering two rare broadcast speeches to the nation weeks apart.

In honour of her decades of royal service, national events commemorating Queen Platinum Jubilee are planned for June.
