 Queen Elizabeth is ‘Preparing’ Charles and William to ‘Take Over’ the Throne Following Her Health Problems

The British royal family’s response to the Queen’s health problems demonstrates how “concerned” they are about what might happen to their monarch. Buckingham Palace announced on October 20 that the Queen’s trip to Northern Ireland has been canceled due to “medical advice” from her doctors.

The statement read, “The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days.” “Her Majesty is in good spirits and is disappointed that she will no longer be able to visit Northern Ireland, where she had been due to undertake a series of engagements today and tomorrow.”

Royal writer Omid Scobie reported a day later that the Queen spent the night at the hospital on October 20th. The Queen was admitted to hospital for one night and underwent “preliminary investigations” while there, according to Buckingham Palace.

A source told Us Weekly on October 27 that the Queen is “preparing” Charles and William to “take over” the throne should something happen to her. “She’s not a quitter and will continue working but is handing over some of her duties to Charles and William,” the insider said. “[She] is preparing them to take over.”

The source also added that William’s wife, Kate Middleton, and the Queen have been “talking more than ever since [the] health care,” Per the insider, Kate has “a special bond with the queen” and often connects with her over “one-on-one phone conversations.”

The source also reported that Kate and her children—Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3—sent the Queen flowers and cards when the monarch returned from the hospital “Kate sent the queen a huge bouquet of flowers from her family,” the insider said. “George, Charlotte and Louis made ‘get well soon cards.”

The Queen is “fine” right now, according to the source, but her family is still “concerned.” “The queen says she’s fine and doing well, but she’s said that before, so naturally [the family is] concerned,” the insider said. “They’d been urging her to take it easy for months.” The insider also noted that the Queen likes to be on a busy schedule “because she hates people fussing over her.”

Another source told Us Weekly on October 27 that Prince Harry, William’s younger brother, feels “helpless” because he and his wife, Meghan Markle, are thousands of miles away from the Queen in the United States while she heals from her health difficulties.“He felt helpless being 5,000 miles away in Montecito and has been checking-in non-stop with her,” the insider said.

As per Stylecaster, the source added that Harry still “feels guilty about not saying goodbye” in person to his grandfather Prince Philip who died in April at the age of 99.

“[He] would never forgive himself if the same thing happened with his beloved grandmother,” the insider said. The source claimed that Harry and Meghan intend to spend the holidays in the United Kingdom with their children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 4 months.

“[Harry is] hoping to go back home for Christmas with Meghan, if not before so that [the Queen] can finally get to meet Lilibet and see Archie again,” the insider said.
