The Queen was told to rest by doctors in October, as the monarch pulled out of several high-profile public events. The month-long order from doctors came as a “bitter blow” to Her Majesty, according to royal expert Victoria Arbiter. Speaking to Australia’s NineHoney, the royal expert said that the Queen has struggled to fill the “irreplaceable void” left by her husband, the late Prince Philip.

The doctors’ rest order saw the Queen pull out of a trip to Northern Ireland as well as COP26.

She then missed the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph after suffering a sprained back.

Ms Arbiter noted: “In truth, it was a sensible precaution.

“It was something she could do without especially with Covid infections continuing to rise.”

She continued: “But, the orders will have come as a bitter blow to the Queen, who really can’t bear to let anyone down.

“After a lifetime of service, most would agree she has earned the right to relax.

“But, as she told her first cousin, the late Margaret Rhodes, ‘I’m going to carry on to the end’.

“Her husband’s death has no doubt left an irreplaceable void but the Queen’s devotion to duty remains undiminished.

“She is determined to honour her vows until she takes her very last breath.”

In mid-November, the Queen was pictured standing and smiling in Windsor Castle as she met with Nick Carter, chief of the defence staff and Britain’s professional head of the armed forces.

Days later, the Queen attended a rare royal double christening, also at Windsor.

These two appearances came were the monarch’s first appearances for nearly a month.

However, Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, said that the Queen is unlikely to appear in public again for the rest of this year.

He said: “In terms of official engagements before the end of the year, I don’t think we will see her out and about doing anything officially, even if she recovers from the sprained back.”

The Queen would traditionally host the annual white-tie Diplomatic Corps reception in December for more than 1,000 guests, but the event has not yet been confirmed for this year.
