(ANSA) – LONDON, MAR 14 – The royal family attended the annual Commonwealth Day interreligious function but without Queen Elizabeth, 96 next month, who still sent a remote message from Windsor Castle stating that her life “will always be at the service” of the country.

He also stressed that he hopes that the peoples of the Commonwealth “can draw strength and inspiration from what we share” during these “difficult times”.

She was replaced in the ceremony at Westminster Abbey by Prince Charles accompanied by his wife Camilla and the Dukes of Cambridge, William and Kate. The absence of the sovereign was announced last Friday by Buckingham Palace, despite her recovery from Covid witnessed by the resumption of some in-person hearings in the last two days. For her, today should have been the first external public engagement since October, when the doctors strictly recommended a rest period during which she was also forced to undergo a rare 24-hour hospitalization for unspecified diagnostic tests.

In recent months, His Majesty has carried out a limited activity at most, always inside Windsor Castle where he spent almost the entire two-year period of the pandemic in semi-isolation. As the sovereign herself admitted, she has difficulty walking and standing for long. And the tabloids point out that the queen is healthy but she has to face the “frailties” of her age. This is why her schedule of commitments may undergo further changes in the future. (HANDLE).
