Queen Elizabeth sparked growing concerns about her health after it was confirmed that she spent a night in a hospital in October 2021. Buckingham Palace revealed that Her Majesty underwent a series of tests and chose not to disclose the real reason behind the monarch's hospitalization.
Though reports suggested that avid royal fans should not worry about Queen Elizabeth as she is fine, her devoted supporters could not help but still be anxious, especially after her COVID-19 diagnosis earlier this year. The British monarch previously tested positive for the fatal disease just days after it was confirmed that Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles contracted the coronavirus.
Now, a royal expert suggested that Queen Elizabeth is very unlikely to attend major events due to her failing health. Keep on reading to know more details.
Royal Followers May Not See Queen Elizabeth Again?
Daily Mail columnist Christopher Wilson claimed that the British public may never see Queen Elizabeth again at major set-piece events, including the Trooping of the Colour.
In his column, Christopher wrote:
"It is now increasingly clear that we should not expect to see our Head of State again at any of those traditional set pieces in the Royal year – Trooping the Colour, the State Opening of Parliament, Royal Ascot and the rest."
Queen Elizabeth is set to celebrate her 96th birthday on April 21. The mother of Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, and Prince Andrew is known for marking her official birthday in June at the Trooping of the Colour ceremony.
However, as suggested, Queen Elizabeth is finding it “extremely difficult” to walk or stand for long periods. Actor Christoper Biggins even stated that the British monarch is “largely confined to a wheelchair,” adding:
“I have heard that the reason she’s not doing a lot of the events that she should be doing and canceling them is that she is in a wheelchair. She doesn’t want to be seen, she’s very proud. It’s so very sad and I hope she is able to make her anniversary celebrations.”

Royal author Phil Dampier claimed Queen Elizabeth would make a “huge effort” to attend the upcoming memorial service of the late Prince Philip, who passed away on April 9, 2021, later this week. He shared:
“They will have to make allowances for her - and no one will begrudge it."
There were even suggestions that Queen Elizabeth may be flown by helicopter to Prince Philip’s memorial service to ensure her comfort and safety.

"Everything is being looked at to make sure the Queen makes it to Philip’s service. But the most important thing is to make sure she is comfortable. A 15-minute flight is better than an hour in the back of a car."
Queen Elizabeth has yet to comment on the claims that she is no longer attending major royal events in the future.
Prince Charles On 'Standby To Take Over' From Queen Elizabeth Amid Her Mobility Issues?

The Daily Star reported that Prince Charles intends to take the place of Queen Elizabeth if she does not feel well to be present herself. The report came days after it was claimed that Her Majesty’s deteriorating health continue.
Royal insiders even claimed that the government officials have already drawn up plans in full view of Queen Elizabeth’s increasing mobility issues.
Tipsters told The Sunday Times:
“The date is in Her Majesty's diary, and she hopes to attend. The Queen remains fit and active, and it is amazing how much she still does. All events will now be scheduled so that if Her Majesty is unable to attend at short notice, another member of the Royal Family will still be present.”
Most, if not all, royal fans are aware that Queen Elizabeth already missed some significant royal events in her calendar, such as the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey earlier this month. The monarch has yet to comment on the claims that she is no longer attending major royal events in the future.
