The Queen, 95, has been pictured driving close to Windsor Castle after being instructed by doctors to only undertake “desk-based duties” for two weeks. She is expected to attend services for Remembrance Sunday but the monarch had planned to be in Glasgow for the Cop26 summit but was advised by doctors to rest. Royal commentator Neil Sean has claimed royal watchers will find out more about the health of the Queen as to whether she attends the services.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Mr Sean said: “People are speculating the fact that pulling out of certain events just what is the situation with the Queen.

“According to the palace, Her Majesty truly is taking rest and rightly so.

“The bigger problem that the Queen has is it appears she finds it very hard to slow down.

“She really likes to do is get out there and meeting people, seeing her subjects and for her to remain indoors and not be able to go out and see people, visit the charities that are close to heart and is very difficult for her.

“Hopefully by the end of this situation at least we will found out whether the Queen will be returning to active duty on Remembrance Sunday in a few days time.

“Fingers crossed that she’s rested up enough but as you can imagine this year has brought unbelieveable trauma and discomfort for Her Majesty.”

Despite ruling out attendance at the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on November 14, Buckingham Palace said the head of state has the “firm intention” of leading the nation in honouring the country’s war dead on Remembrance Sunday the next day.

In a statement on Friday, the palace said: “Following on from their recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks.

“The doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not to undertake any official visits.

“Her Majesty regrets that this means she will be unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday November 13.

“However, it remains The Queen’s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on November 14.”

There will be concern for the Queen given her advanced years, but medics see the period of rest as a sensible precaution.

She is said to be in good spirits and recorded her Cop26 speech on Friday afternoon.

Boris Johnson has said the public must “respect” the Queen’s need to relinquish some duties for a short period and offered an insight into her current outlook following their regular briefing.

The Prime Minister, speaking at the weekend to ITV News in Rome, where he travelled for the G20, said: “I spoke to Her Majesty as I do every week as part of my job and she was on very good form.

“She has been told by her doctors that she has got to rest and I think we have got to respect that and understand that and everybody wishes her all the very best.”
