Queen Elizabeth’s duties formally revised amid mobility issues

Queen Elizabeth’s duties are changing. The 96-year-old monarch’s duties have been revised as she delegates more to her son, Prince Charles, confirms ET.

Her Majesty’s “official duties” were outlined in the palace’s annual Sovereign Grants report released last week, and the list of duties “that must be performed” has been removed to lighten the Queen’s workload.

Many of the duties, such as the state opening of Parliament, will now be supported by her family, the future king, increasingly Charles, who has stood up for his mother as she deals with “episodic mobility issues”. Prince William, second in line to the throne, is also expected to perform more duties on behalf of his grandmother.

It is the first time in more than a decade that there has been a formal change in the monarch’s responsibilities, Vanity Fair Report.

The Queen’s change of duties comes amid her ongoing mobility issues. Buckingham Palace had previously told ET that the Queen missed the opening of Parliament in May due to an “episodic mobility problem”.

The following month, during her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Queen Elizabeth held a series of events after experiencing “some discomfort” at Trooping the Colour.

However, she made a surprise appearance to cap off the four-day long celebration that was held to commemorate her 70 years on the throne. Weeks later, Queen Elizabeth once again appeared in public, stepping out during Holyrood Week in Edinburgh, Scotland.
