The news comes after the Queen’s health scare last week, when it was announced the 95-year-old had spent a night in hospital. Buckingham Palace stated that the monarch spent a night in hospital for preliminary medical checks and swiftly returned back to Windsor Castle. Before the admission she was given medical advice to rest for a few days after a busy schedule of public engagements. 

The news has sparked concern for the monarch’s health, with people calling for the younger royals to step up, taking pressure off Her Majesty. 

Since then, it has been said that the Queen will not attend public events without other members of the family with her. 

9Honey’s royal reporter, Natalie Oliveri spoke about the new announcement.

Ms Oliveri said: “This new working order will see Queen Elizabeth joined by either her one of her children, or grandchildren at all future coming events.”

“It will allow the Queen to cancel at the last minute if she needs to have a rest or if her health declines.”

“It will also avoid any public disappointment if the Queen does need to pull out at the last minute, because then a member of the Royal Family will already be attending.”

She added: “Now this really is a major change to the Queen schedule. Already this year we have seen her joined by a number of her family members at public events.”

“Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Camridge and also Prince Edward and his wife Sophie.”

“It really has been something that the Palace has been trying to do since the death of Prince Philip.”

“No one wants to see the Queen out there and alone.”

“Now that she’s getting older, and perhaps her health is declining a little, it’s now time for the other members of the family to step up and help Her Majesty where she needs it.”

Since the monarch has returned from her summer break at Balmoral she has attended events in Wales, England and Scotland.
