Meanwhile, it comes after Buckingham Palace confirmed doctors had advised Her Majesty to rest for the next two weeks.

This means she won’t be able to attend the Festival of Remembrance on November 13.

However, she wants to attend the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday on November 14.

Fans have expressed concerns for the Queen over the last couple of weeks.

Many have urged her to slow down and take a break from duties.

Elsewhere, a royal expert has also urged the monarch to “put herself first” and said it’s time for her heirs – Prince Charles and Prince William – to “take the reins”.

Russell Myers wrote in the Mirror: “It is of some comfort that we are told the Queen has the ‘firm intention’ of leading the nation at the Cenotaph on November 14.

“But after recent days of announcements of cancelled events it is now surely in the balance. The Queen’s relentless schedule of late would let anyone half or even a third of her age shudder.”

He added: “Now more than ever, it is time for her heirs and the rest of the family to step up and take the reins, while the Queen for once puts herself first above all else.”

And many royal fans agree as one person said on Twitter: “She should be allowed to step down and enjoy a rest for her remaining time. Skip Charles and make William king.”

Another wrote: “I believe the Queen has done her time, she should be able to rest now, let Charles or William take the throne.”
