Queen Elizabeth II has less official obligations because of her health issues. The newest financial report, as revealed in the Telegraph newspaper on Sunday, indicated that the palace had changed the queen’s function.
Some previously required dates have been changed, including the formal opening of Parliament. Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, served as the Queen’s representative this year.
Due to ongoing mobility issues, the 96-year-old has frequently postponed consultations in recent months. Therefore, the revised version provides a more flexible definition and releases the queen from some obligations. The Queen’s duty “encompasses a range of parliamentary and diplomatic obligations,” to put it more broadly.
The monarch is cited as a model for “continuity and stability” and “united and national identity.” The royal visits have also changed. A more inclusive “Royal Program Visits” has replaced the “Queen’s Programme”. The statement read, “The Queen is assisted by other Royal Family members who are carrying out official tasks on Her Majesty’s behalf.”
Particularly her oldest son Prince Charles should now be the subject of considerably greater attention. The 73-year-old has recently faced criticism, though. First, it came to light that Charles had accepted millions of dollars in funding for one of his foundations from Qatar. That wasn’t prohibited, but the heir to the throne’s decision was questioned.
The Sunday Times has recently revealed that Charles bestowed a royal accolade onto a controversial businessman after the latter assisted him with millions of dollars’ worth of donations. Peter Hunt, a Royals expert, condemned politicians’ silence as “deafening.” The de facto ruler is without blame, and his decisions are accepted without question. (dpa)
