Her Majesty the Queen may be “unhappy” to be taking a rest from public duties, as the 95-year-old monarch was forced to cancel her trip to COP26 following advice from her doctors, one royal expert has claimed. Author Angela Levin suggested the Queen might be reflecting on a “lot of memories” of her late husband Prince Philip, as she appeared via video link earlier today to conduct two engagements.
Earlier today, the Queen returned to public duties with virtual audiences at Windsor Castle, where she has spent the last week resting.
She conducted a meeting with the ambassador from the Republic of Korea, Gunn Kim, and later met with Markus Leitner from the Swiss Confederation.
Images of the engagements show Her Majesty wearing a yellow dress and her three-strand pearl necklace, as she smiled down the camera.
When asked about the Queen’s appearance and her recent cancelleation to COP26, Ms Levin told GB News she thought the Queen looked tired.
The royal author added: “That could be just because she’s tired and also, she might be unhappy because she’s not doing the things she wanted.
“She’s not even walking her dogs which she does every day, she hasn’t done that for a week.
“She perhaps has a lot of memories of her late husband, because when you’re not busy, you think about the person more because you haven’t got something to detract from your view.”
Prince Philip, the Queen’s husband of over 73 years, died on April 9 at Windsor Castle at the age of 99 years old.
The couple had been acquainted since she was 13 years old, and she had previously described him as her “strength and stay” during their Golden Wedding anniversary in 1997.

Since his death, the Queen has maintained a busy schedule of public engagements, and in recent weeks she has opened both Scottish and Welsh Parliaments, launched the Commonwealth Games baton relay and hosted a business reception at Windsor.
However, last Wednesday it was announced that she had “reluctantly” accepted medical advice to cancel a two-day trip to Northern Ireland.
It was subsequently revealed that she had spent the Wednesday evening in King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone for “preliminary investigations”.
It has been made clear that her illness is not Covid-related and she was back at her desk by Thursday afternoon to resume light duties.

Despite conducting two official engagements today, it was announced this evening that she would no longer be attending the COP26 summit in Glasgow next week.
In its latest statement, the palace said: “Following advice to rest, The Queen has been undertaking light duties at Windsor Castle.
“Her Majesty has regretfully decided that she will no longer travel to Glasgow to attend the evening reception of COP26 on Monday, 1 November.”
It stated that she would instead deliver an address through a “recorded video message”, whilst other leading members of the Royal Family, including Prince Charles and Prince William, would attend in-person.
