She goes out domestically when asked by the government(s), meets obligations with the Commonwealth, or agrees to UK government requests to travel outside the realm and Commonwealth. She is uniquely effective in domestic government matters and her active support for her governments adds weight and influence.

Whoever does her diary needs sacking. Scheduling so many events, so close together is not a good idea for any 94 year old. Particularly given that's she's been in Edinburgh, Cardiff, London and was scheduled to go to Northern Ireland. That's way too much to put in her diary.

Something is afoot though. It was Anne that accompanied her to the Abbey, handing her, her walking stick for the first time. That says to me that there is family concern about The Queen. I wonder if she's had a fall at Windsor or Balmoral and the family have told her that she needs a stick now.

R83 In fairness the Queen reviews and approves her own diary and she is a known workaholic. After 18 months in lockdown and dealing with all the family drama, she probably wants to be busy again and told her secretaries "full steam ahead."

I think her age is catching up to her. Prior to COVID, she was (as always) super busy, than all of a sudden her life stops and she's basically stuck at Windsor for over a year without the same amount of physical activity. I think that has slowed her down more than anything. It's like exercise, if you are forced to stop for a while, it's hard getting back into it, your body has to adapt again and at 95 her energy levels likely won't bounce back after a year of being more low key.

I think the walking stick is being used for when she is outdoors on uneven ground. She didn't use it at last night's reception at Windsor or any of the private audiences at Buckingham Palace on Monday.

That being said she is 95, and I mean at 95 a big sneeze or a difficult bowel movement can be dangerous.

[quote]No More Martinis: The Queen Advised to Give Up Her Favorite Drink

Queen Elizabeth is known to enjoy a tipple but Her Majesty is giving up her daily alcoholic beverage at the advice of her doctors.

While she is in good physical health, the Queen, who has been seen using a cane in recent days including Thursday in Wales where she addressed the Welsh Parliament, has been advised to give up her evening martini as she prepares for one of the most important periods of her reign, Vanity Fair can report.

According to two sources close to the monarch, doctors have advised the Queen to forgo alcohol except for special occasions to ensure she is as healthy as possible for her busy autumn schedule and ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations next June. “The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,” says a family friend. “It’s not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker but it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she’s having to give up one of very few pleasures.”

The Queen has gone through a difficult period following the death of her husband Prince Philip in April. In recent months, however, she has looked happy and full of energy and enthusiasm as she has carried out a string of engagements.

While she is rarely seen drinking in public, she apparently enjoys a drink most evenings. According to palace sources, her drink of choice is often a dry martini which also happens to be Prince Charles’s favorite as well.

At dinner, the Queen usually enjoys a glass of sweet wine and, according to her late cousin Margaret Rhodes, she’s been known to drink a glass of champagne before bed.

But now, Her Majesty will only imbibe water and soft drinks. “The alcohol has gone, her doctors want to make sure she is as fit and healthy as possible,” confirms a second source.

While it was once reported that the Queen consumed four alcoholic beverages a day, chef Darren McGrady, who cooked for her from 1982-1993 said though she ate four small meals a day (including afternoon tea and a piece of cake), she rarely drank at lunch and often enjoyed just a single small glass of sweet German wine with dinner.

Aside from her nightly dry martini, the Queen is a fan of Dubonnet and gin, which was the Queen Mother’s favorite drink. Last year Buckingham Palace released its own brand of gin, and the Queen allows sparkling wine to be produced from her vines at Windsor Great Park.

After spending most of 2020 and the early part of 2021 at Windsor Castle in lockdown, the Queen has now resumed in-person engagements and has been busy since returning from her extended summer break at Balmoral.

Palace aides have said that the Queen’s schedule will be busy up until Christmas and she’ll be dividing her time between Windsor and Buckingham Palace where she has resumed official engagements and investitures.

Next year, the Queen’s focus will be on her Platinum Jubilee celebrations which will involve a four-day Bank Holiday weekend with events including Trooping the Colour, a service of Thanksgiving, and the highlight of the celebrations—a pageant with 5,000 performers on The Mall in London. There will also be a live concert at Buckingham Palace, called the Platinum Party at the Palace and the Queen will also head to the Derby, at Epsom Downs. The Queen will be 96 at the time of the celebrations and is expected to travel around the UK to mark the occasion while her family undertakes a tour around the Commonwealth.

I suspect if the Cons are in power when the Queen dies her funeral will be treated as a bigger deal than if Trudeau is still in office.

Who gives a rusty fuck if she dies this year or 3 years on? She's very OLD. The elder elder elder gays of DL think of Lizbeth as their mommy. Although they are 80 years old themselves. And still drinking. And they hated their real mommy.

Betty Windsor can have a stroke anyday, or break a bone or develope dementia within a few weeks. Die of pneumonia or heart congestion. Happens everyday to people her age. The Crown can't protect her from the devil.

She does look good and alert. But that's it. Who the fuck cares? Mourn her when she's gone. Anticipatory grief is about your own sad selves. Ancient white gays with mommy issues.

She wouldn't have spent the night in hospital unless it absolutely necessary. The leak coming from the Palace this morning was that the Queen had a cold because she had tested negative for COVID.

I think she has a cold and here's why.

First, there was a story going round in the British papers about the super cold that is on the move... people think it's COVID it's so nasty but they test negative. We have all been warned our immune systems won't be what they used to be after eighteen months of barely seeing anybody, so for a 95 year old nobody wants to see die, they're not going to take any chances. It would be easy given her schedule for someone to give her a cold.

Second, the reporting said (consistently) that she's now back at Windsor after "preliminary investigations." If I had an old person who nobody wants to see die, with respiratory symptoms, even mild ones and COVID floating about (though no doubt she's had her third) and the Super Cold, I'd be lining up chest imaging pretty damn quick to make sure there's no sign of pneumonia. If there wasn't, home she goes... safer from infection at Windsor Castle than in even the best hospital.

Seems to me she may have balance issues o she may have had a mild stoke. It is possible. But if she has balance issues and has fallen, o if she has a weakness on one side due to a mild stroke, that would account for the "no more martinis" prescription along with the cane and bed rest. I bet they have a tiny little golf cart for her inside Buckingham Palace. Now if she has had some minor impairment, staying at Windsor might be easier for her.

My guess is minor fall, she insisted everything was okay and refused to acknowledge any initial pain, there is minor concern in her family about her walking without a cane, so Anne is recruited for the next public outing to lay down the law that she use a cane. A couple of days after the fall she starts to feel minor pain, she is sent to the hospital for an MRI to make there are no fractures, there are no fractures but she has bruised her hip or some other body part in the minor fall. She is told to rest a few days to let her body heal naturally. (Going through this right now with my Dad as a matter of fact.)

I think she had a fall. I think she has balance issues. I think she went to the hospital to see if she had a stoke. I think she did have a mild stoke and she has a bit of weakness, thus the cane. Bed rest is about all they can do at her age. For all we know she may have to take a light regimen of PT as well. Stop dinking IMO is a sign of a vey mild stoke. Don't be surprised of she uses a walker or a wheel chair in a few months. At he age such things ae inevitable. But she is basically in sound health and physically fit. She walks, she is out in the fresh air, and until very recently, she even rides her horses. I'd say she will be around for a few more years, but on a much reduced schedule. I think Windsor suits her at this time. I'm betting less time at B'ham Palace, more at Windsor and Sandringham.

Sinn Fein made a big stink about her attendance to the 100 year anniversary of the Partition. I wouldn’t say she is faking an illness, but this does give her an out. It is telling that one of the working royals isn’t taking her place at the event. This was mainly done for her to save face.

[quote]Yes, this is what I was thinking. I'm sure there is an operatory where the Queen lives. Doctors would normally come to her. She's not like us normals, driving out to get shots, etc. Must've been something more serious.

Or.... it's the 95 Queen of the UK and how many other Commonwealth countries and [italic]nobody[/italic] wants to unsuccessfully answer 'why didn't you take her to London to have her checked out?'

She's 95, she overdid it. The night before this happened she was seen on tape, bright and energetic. While anything is possible the only history of stroke was Princess Margaret... who smoked beyond heavily all her life. George VI also smoked heavily and had circulatory issues. Neither the Times, the Telegraph nor the Daily Mail has anything even confirming a cold or repeating anything other than sent to be checked, back home by noon the next day, at work again on a modified schedule.

I assume since it was a blip it was kept quiet precisely to avoid an unnecessary deathwatch. If she's not up and running again on a more visible schedule by this time next week, I'd be surprised.

Many of the of the royal reporters on Twitter claiming BP lied and how can we trust them re: health updates about the Queen. Mary, calm the fuck down. Maybe the Queen and BP staff knew that if they had told the public she was in hospital, that those same reporters would have camped out in front of the hospital hoping to get a picture like they did with Philip. The woman is 95 and in the 70th year of a very productive reign. Just leave her alone. If she were dying, I think BP would be sending out more signals to prepare the public for it.

She would have withdrawn from public life long beforehand if there was a terminal diagnosis. Charles would be running a full-fledged regency, if he is not already.

R272 The Queen mother made her final public appearance four months before she died. She had clearly grown weaker in her final appearances but she did not have dementia. Over Christmas 2001, her energy began to wane and she was forced to use a wheelchair (which is why she refused to be seen in public even at Princess Margaret's funeral). Around the same time that Margaret died, she developed a chest infection and never recovered dying less than two months later.

R268 Yes, if she dies suddenly, e.g. in her sleep unexpectedly, will know in the morning. I think what R267 means, if the Queen is in a fatal decline, there would be deliberate leaks and signs coming the Palace alerting royal reporters that something serious was up basically trying to brace the country without actually saying the Queen is dying.

The Palace is always deliberatly vague with royal health matters, and reading between the lines is important. "Preliminary tests" suggests they don't know exactly what is wrong with her and there is going to be further tests. She stayed in hospital for "practical reasons" could be a sign that her blood pressure is too high or too low in which at 95 they are going to keep you for observation. It could also be that the Queen required an IV drip or something that was easier to administered if she remained in hospital. We'll see what happens, she is 95 and frankly a huge sneeze (or even big fart) can burst a blood vessel in old person.

Dieu et mon droit" is the motto of England and of the British monarchy since Henry V (1413-1422). This motto is in French because it was the language of the rulers of the kingdom since William the Conqueror (words and expressions of French and Norman origin are also found in the English language).

Henry V spoke both French and English, yet the use of English by the elite flourished during his reign. Some mottos of English orders of chivalry are also in French, for example "Honni soit qui mal y pense" for the Order of the Garter.

If she is working remotely something is up. It confirms my suspicion she may have had a minor stoke. She is probably on a strict regimen of rest, physical therapy, and a restrictive diet. It may also be that they have her on some new medication as well, and she is adjusting to it. Generally, IMO she is still under observation. If her speech is slightly slurred, or if she has some kind of mobility deficit, perhaps a weakness on one side, etc. they will be working on that. She is supposed to participate in the up coming G7 or G 20 or WTF ever, so we'll see. If they are showing her working remotely, it's possible they want us to prepare for her future participation remotely as well. Don't be shocked if the next time we see her out in public she's in a wheel chair. They may even show her walking and standing, then sitting in the chair. Now if she has Inner Ear difficulties, or balance issues related to that, then that would be another reason for all this.

Based on what? What is "clearly" going on? She's 95 years old and there's still a pandemic going on. The average age of deaths in the vaccinated was 85 in a recent study. So do you go to a crowded room full of people from all over the world or do you stay home because you're 95? It seems to me if your doctor(s) say take it easy, it is unlikely they'll say go to a convention.

What a bunch of alarmists.

by Anonymousreply 387October 26, 2021 7:20 PM

R387 While I agree there is a bit of pearl clutching going on (but this is DL after all) but the Queen likely doesn't give a fig about the pandemic. In 70 years, she has cancelled maybe a dozen times (and that's a liberal figure). She would not back out of an international event in which she was to be the host unless she is really unwell. That doesn't mean she's at death's door, but something is up.

by Anonymousreply 388October 26, 2021 7:26 PM

Right, but in most of those 70 years she hasn't been nearing 100 years of age. It is entirely possible she has a new appreciation for the idea of staying alive. And the precedent for being represented by others has been established for some years. Charles, Anne and William now do the bulk of the investitures, for example. I suggest your assumption of how she feels about the pandemic is fairly liberal and what's up is likely a preference to attend her jubilee next year and mark 70 years on the throne, rather than COP26 in Glasgow.

by Anonymousreply 393October 27, 2021 12:20 AM

R393 In fairness, the vast majority of the Queen's public engagements aren't actually things the monarch is constitutionally required to do.

The head of state duties are mostly limited to the Queen rubber stamping bills into law, signing off an appointments (e.g. ambassadors, military promotions, Clergy appointments), Summoning Parliament (she doesn't actually have to read the speech that's just a tradition), dismissing parliament and calling an election, and finally ensuring the country always has a Prime Minister.

All the of the Queen's public engagements (even state visits) are what the Palace likes to call Head of the Nation duties. Basically they are meant to ensure the monarchy remains visible and in contact with regular people. They are also designed to reinforce the Queen's position at the top of the country's governance structure by being the national representative when VIPs come to visit. But these duties are not required.

As long as the Queen is well mentally, she can continue functioning as monarch while having Charles and William carry the public side.

by Anonymousreply 394October 27, 2021 12:37 AM

According to the Daily Mail it appears the Queen's doctors don't want her to travel 800 miles (round trip) from Windsor to Glasgow. It seems in the future the Queen's travel will likely be limited between Windsor and BP. Which begs the question, who the fuck chose Glasgow?

Also lets forget the idea of the Queen abdicating. She will remain Queen until she dies nothing else is going to happen. There is no legal mechanism in the UK for the monarch's reign to end but in death. If she were to abdicate, it would mean all 15 Commonwealth Realms would have to pass legislation and no way she'd want that because it will open a debate about the monarchy in those countries. Even if she is a drooling vegetable, she will still be Queen with Charles acting as regent.

But if you needed an MRI or a CT Scan or any other stuff you'd have to go to the hospital. And suppose they find a brain aneurysm. They run a test and all of a sudden someone requires surgery.

So Louis XIV was 4 years old when his father the king died. So technically king but obviously not doing much besides learning to read and write. He was almost 77 years old when he died.

Next longest reign, the king of Thailand was a young adult at the time his elder brother mysteriously died. But the last decade of his life was spent in seclusion, mostly in a hospital. He was 88 years old when he died and had been in very poor health all that time.

So the queen at 95 and until this week, quite active and healthy, really should be at the top of the longest reigning monarch page.

The monarchy should die with the Queen and I suspect she would (secretly) agree. Look what's coming? Yes, shit and peodophiles and tampons and divorces and beheadings and greed and war and rape and dowdiness and denial is all part of the British Monarchy. That's life.

I bet the queen knows that they have no right to anything anymore and what's to follow her are all shitty examples of overpaid underbred fake ass specialties. It's an antiquated life. She lived it. Time's UP. Her best trait is that she doesn't seem deluded in the last half of life. That's rare in old people.

The old lady *MEN* prisspot queens on this thread are Ancient White American FAGs with lisping affections. Permanently deluded. They slobber over their lost mommy. The one who disapproved.

Many UK subjects have affection for Elizabeth. But they're not starry eyed about the monarchy. Jesus Christ - Stop paying these people billions to be dumb and ugly. And those jewels are hideous.

R481 Support to abolish the monarchy in the UK has been steady at only about 30 to 35% over for the last forty years, with popular support around 65-70% in favour of keeping it after the Queen dies since the Golden Jubilee in 2002. Additionally the only group in the UK that has majority support (very narrow) for becoming a republic are 18 to 21 year olds (48% against to 46% supporting monarchy). Yes monarchy has stronger support amongst older people but even the 22-34 age bracket support is about 58% supporting monarchy as of June 2021.

And when you think about it, 40 years ago, today's 55-64 year old monarchy supporters would have been in part the 18 - 21 year old republicans.

It's easy for radicals and outsiders to dismiss the monarchy, but it is part of the nation's history, part of its character... that isn't as easily dismissed as the scorn that claims so.

William and Kate are the fake monarchs in waiting. Nice family that should get out of the business. He will never be King of anywhere. Queen Elizabeth defends her rapist son. She's too old to understand the things that people do. It's an antiquated system. Surviving Angel is the second most dull poster on DL. Don't matter what the population favors. When Liz is dead - within 3 to 9 months from now is my guess - the desire for the monarchy to continue will take a huge drop. No one wants Charles. We've seen The Crown. We can see his face and Camilla is an old broken whore. Don't they have bra fitters in England. She doesn't have to look quite so much like an old cumdump. The queen is sloppy too but she's a hunchback. That she is mentally slowing is not a surprise. Let the old woman watch TV and eat sweets. She's not there to fulfill your destiny. The monarchy is over within the next 10 years. King Charles and his escort will do nothing right. The END.

R504 makes reasonable and valid points. The queen is nothing in the world of accomplishment or leadership. We know nothing of her intelligence or opinion. She's failed more often than succeeded. Her work is the world's best paid PR position.

Harry and Meghan are loved for their modern life and style. Iconoclastic choices. They had a misstep, but only with branding. No one hates an old hunched over moldy castle widow, Lizzy will be mourned for whatever it is she did. But mostly for being old and looking it. She's never been outside her property. She just owns half the fucking country. The world LOVES Harry and Meg. They've ventured forth and dare to look like people. What great monarchs they would make!

At least they are free of that elitist anachronism. So are William and Kate. He will never be KING. How stupid for her to dress to be a skinny 55 year old queen from the time she was 25?!?

R510 I am an American living in the UK (been here 11 years) and I have to say I've developed a reluctant soft spot for the monarchy. I think when you're on the outside looking in, it looks ridiculously archaic but then I have to remind myself that it's a cultural difference. In the US, our whole narrative is based on rejecting the Crown (although Americans really have just replaced royals with Hollywood celebrities and reality stars) while the UK is based on the Royals being the center of national life. I will say that it's much more obvious to me now that the American President really is an elected Monarch with powers and prerogatives similar to what George III's. The monarchy does have an interesting purpose, one I would argue is actually more relevant now, which is to remind people there is more to national life than just politics. Everything in the US is political in a way it's not in the UK, now that's not just because of the monarchy, but there is something to be said about having a head of state who is not political, who has been there (whether on the throne or part of the family) their whole life. It's that emotional connection to the royals that I think is the biggest obstacle for those who want to abolish the monarchy. Also the British gays love the monarchy (even if the pretend not to) because of the theatre of it all.

A story from a column in The Telegraph. She plays a meaningful part very well.

"She knows how her presence can petrify people, so much that they cannot speak – or can’t stop talking. She frequently uses the corgis to break the ice, to put people at ease and occasionally as instinctive therapy. Just ask David Nott, the surgeon who, suffering from PTSD after many tours in Aleppo and Gaza, found himself in that same situation at a private lunch at Buckingham Palace. When the Queen turned to talk to him, he suddenly could not speak, his eyes filling with tears, his lip trembling. She looked at him, called her dogs, took a dog biscuit from a tin, broke it in half and gave one to him. Together they petted and fed the dogs. “There,” she said, “that’s so much better than talking, isn’t it?"

Whatever is going on... and it's probably next to nothing though nothing is quite as next to nothing in a 95 year old... in any event, it's now enough... they need a disclosure of some sort of some specificity. Even if it's to buy some more time.

My money is still on a cold or respiratory infection of some description, which can be exhausting, which you don't want turning into pneumonia, and which would explain the determination to keep her apart from crowds. She did 19 engagements in October and was in hospital overnight a week ago, October 20/21. That would be an engagement a day based on the calendar days so you know she doesn't work weekends so that's more than one a day on some days. That's a lot for a 95 year old.

The Palace sends smoke signals. They would neither want to inflame media or distract from the solemnity of the Remembrance Sunday ceremony by saying she is determined to go and then having her not go. While she could not go in the end, I can't believe they'd say it if it seemed likely she would not go.

But she's 95 and the media's now on death watch so this opaque commentary is making things worse instead of better. They're gonna have to say something more than rest.

It's possible she contracted one of those UTIs so common amongst very old women, especially. These tend to go undetected for longer than usual. She would have been put on a ten-day course of powerful antibiotics. It could just as easily be that as something more ominous.

Just the same, it's stating the obvious. She's not only 95, she also lost the central emotional anchoring of her life when Philip died. The other spouse in these partnerships often decline soon after one goes. And the vicious lying self-serving attacks by her grandson and his bitch of a wife during the year when she had to know Philip wasn't long for this world probably did take an additional toll on what were left of her emotional resources.

We really can't know.

SA as I've warned before, do not hold your breath on those title removals. If she's weakened, this is one last battle she doesn't have the energy for.

That leaves Charles facing opening his reign with a firestorm with racist accusations, or doing nothing and letting the Sussexes enjoy their titles whilst keeping them away from the monarchy in every other respect.

The best you can hope for is a pointed amendment to the 1917 Titles Act that going forward ensures that the children of Spares are out of the running for HRHs.

He won't take his son's HRH or deprive his mixed race grandchildren of them. The latter, especially, will only hand the Harkles a weapon to support their claim that the BRF hated Meghan because she's "black".

We really need QE2 to live for another 10 to 15 years therefore probably sparing us King Charles.

Whoever came up with the bullshit that H was the favoured grandchild anyway? Was that all part of his "hero Harry" bollocks? or the upper middle class cows like Katie Nichol and her ilk that hated Kate because " it should've been me" and were dying to get into H's sweaty grundies as the next best option. Many media types did, Caroline Flack and Natalie Pinkham for starters. Look out for 40ish female journos with a vitriol for Kate .

I was wondering when Andrew's lawyers were going to come out swinging.

Well, many of us already knew all about the colorful past of Virginia Roberts Giuffre.

R563 The Queen does seem to favor her grandkids who struggled a bit more, either with rulebreaking or failure to launch—Harry and Beatrice. I wonder if they remind her of Margaret somehow? Or it’s just a squeaky wheel gets the grease?

I've read that the Queen is closest to Peter Phillips, her eldest grandchild. The general consensus seems to be that she and Philip were both excellent grandparents to all eight of them, despite having been pretty poor parents.

I think this is going to backfire on Andrew. VG may have a sleezy past, but she was also sex trafficked as a minor.

She can't be too sick.

Those pictures were taken about two or three months ago. Not recent.

Caption: The Queen driving at Windsor this morning as she takes a break from royal duties on the advice of her doctors. The images of Her Majesty behind the wheel will ease concerns for the 95-year-old's wellbeing

R578 This likely eliminates the "mini-stroke" theory. If she had general weakness that often follows a small stroke, no way her doctors would let her behind the wheel. I'm thinking the UTI theory might be the most likely now.

You've spoken to them recently, R590?

by Anonymousreply 591November 1, 2021 6:05 PM

From The Times: "It is not known where she was going, but she was alone in the car and was driving with characteristic confidence, splashing through the deep puddles on the road. As one of the photographers who saw her put it: “She does not drive like a little old lady — she drives quite fast.”


The spot where she was seen is one often frequented by photographers. One said: “If she did not want to be photographed, she would not have driven there.”
