The Queen Elizabeth II. will not be attending the Braemar Gathering, the most important event of the Scottish Games, this weekend. According to sources from Buckingham Palace, the British monarch needs to rest and enjoy the comfort of her summer residence.
Instead of attending a major Scottish event, the Queen will be resting. She therefore asked her son Prince Charles to replace her, The Guardian reported.
“The decision was made for the Queen’s convenience,” a source told the Daily Mirror. Her son will enjoy tug-of-war, a band with bagpipes or traditional Scottish dances. The traditional celebration of Scottish culture is taking place for the first time in three years due to the pandemic. Before that, Elizabeth II. participated regularly.
Earlier in the week, Buckingham Palace announced that the British monarch will not officially say goodbye to outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson in London. Instead, the prime minister will visit the 96-year-old queen.
Subsequently, the Queen will welcome the next Prime Minister or Prime Minister. It depends whether the Conservatives choose Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak. One of these candidates will therefore be the first British prime minister whom Elizabeth II. does not name at Buckingham Palace. For the last time in 1908, King Eduard VII. named Herbert Henry Asquith in France.
The Queen arrived at Aberdeen Airport on July 21 and has not been seen in public since. She welcomed several visitors to her residence, including Prince William and Duchess Kate with their children. Recently, according to the Daily Mirror, he needs to rest more and has problems with movement. But she is still excited about her grandchildren’s visits.
