After the world’s leaders gathered over the weekend for mass climate change discussions for the COP26 in Glasgow, many were disappointed that her majesty, Queen Elizabeth, was not present and would instead greet the delegates of the world in a recorded video.
As Bloomberg put it, the conference lacked the magic that the Queen would’ve scattered, but it was more than that. It was a progression in many occurrences of ‘royal mortality’.
Many people have been wondering what is actually happening with her majesty’s health. Earlier in the month as CNN reports, concerns were raised after the Queen had been seen in public with a cane, something very rare. She had also cancelled a visit to Northern Ireland recently due to her health – which was largely hid from the media as Bloomberg reports.
Recently she spent a night in hospital which her spokesman described as a “preliminary investigation.”
Currently, the Queen has reportedly been told by doctors to rest for the next two weeks and to not undertake official visits according to a statement by Buckingham Palace.
Now, people are starting to consider Britain without it’s head of state and the world without one of its longest reigning icons.
