Queen Elizabeth cancels royal engagement due to ‘episodic mobility problems’

Queen Elizabeth has “reluctantly” cancelled a scheduled royal engagement due to “episodic mobility problems”.

The 96-year-old was due to attend the State Opening of Parliament today, but her son Prince Charles will now take over her duties at the event.

The news was confirmed via a press release by Buckingham Palace on Monday.

It comes after the Queen was forced to cancel a number of events earlier this year after testing positive for Covid-19.

In April, the British monarch revealed her battle with the virus had left her feeling “very tired.”

In a conversation with National Health Service workers organized by the Royal London Hospital, she said: “It does leave one very tired and exhausted, doesn’t it? This horrible pandemic. It’s not a nice result.”

Although Her Majesty is not attending the State Opening of Parliament, she is still expected to be present for her Platinum Jubilee celebration in June.

Last week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed they will be attending the Jubilee celebrations with their two children – Archie and Lilibet Diana.

It will be the first time Queen Elizabeth meets her great-granddaughter Lilibet, who is named after her.
