Richard Fitzwilliams told Entertainment Daily!: “The Queen much regrets cancelling her visit to Northern Ireland on medical advice.

“She has had an active schedule recently which has included opening the Scottish and Welsh Parliaments, beginning the global relay of the baton for the Commonwealth Games for Birmingham 2022 and Tuesday’s reception for business leaders at Windsor.

“In recent years her engagements have been carefully balanced for her comfort.

“Her last long haul flight abroad was in 2015, lifts are sometimes used instead of stairs and so on.

“The Queen has used a stick recently and obviously in future, care will continue to be taken in arranging her schedules with the support of other members of the royal family.”

Mr Fitzwilliams added: “As long as the Queen is able to perform her duties she will undoubtedly continue to do so, as when Princess Elizabeth, in Cape Town in 1947, she swore she would.

“She knows that the nation is devoted to her and any event she attends has a certain cachet.

“After having an enforced rest she undoubtedly intends to attend Cop26 in Glasgow as planned, which is most important.”

However, some believe there’s no reason why the Queen should have to step back.

One added: “Absolutely no reason for The Queen to resign. She has spent her entire lifetime dedicated to service, sacrifice and British people.

“If she has to take a break or two at 95 then so be it. SHE’S EARNED every bit and more.”

It comes after a statement was released explaining the Queen was taking rest.

It said that Her Majesty “reluctantly” accepted the medical advice and is in “good spirits”.
