Growing concerns over Queen Elizabeth’s health status has lead her to postpone two more virtual talks. On Thursday, Buckingham Palace officials announced this development, however, they assured that the British monarch will still be performing light duties while in self-isolation at Windsor Castle.

According to The Sun, the Queen still continues to experience mild Covid symptoms with royal sources saying the 95-year-old monarch was already showing good signs of shaking the coronavirus and getting over her very mild bout of Covid-19. Her mild-cold-like symptoms have not marred the Queen from carrying on with her light engagements. She was still able to speak with Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday over the phone for their weekly audience.

Palace officials are hopeful this is an encouraging sign of her recovery despite having to skip out on two scheduled virtual engagements. The virtual talks will be arranged for a later date and all other engagements have been cleared from her calendar for this week.

Having been triple jabbed royal doctors are confident the Queen will recover and manage through her mild symptoms soon. However, she will still be on doctor’s orders to rest and take things easy after her health scare last year where she was forced to spend a night in hospital. The Queen has been pictured in recent months using a walking stick frequently indicating other medical issues that palace officials remain mum about, in accordance with royal medical privacy.

At a recent tea party hosted in the ballroom of her Norfolk home on Feb. 5, Queen made her appearance with her walking stick adorned with a carved handle made from a horn. The cane is said to be the Duke of Edinburgh’s favorite walking stick which he used regularly while he made his rounds of the Sandringham estate. At the time, palace aides said Prince Philip needed the cane only to help maneuver through the muddy Dersingham Bog. The Queen is also frequently seen assisted by a distinctive staff during her engagements.

During an audience at Windsor Castle last week, the monarch nonchalantly pointed out her mobility issues and said, “Well, as you can see, I can't move."

The Queen is set to host the Diplomatic Reception next week and hundreds of dignitaries are looking forward to the major engagement which hopefully will still push through.
