According to the Palace, the Queen has “reluctantly decided” not to attend the State Opening of Parliament tomorrow after “consulting with her doctors.” The statement concluded by revealing that Prince Charles will assume her responsibilities at the event.

The 96-year-old royal will still attend her annual Jubilee celebration next month.

According to research published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, even mild cases of COVID-19 can result in “worsened mobility and functioning outcomes following infection” in middle-aged and elderly patients.

Queen Elizabeth revealed in April that the coronavirus had left her feeling “very tired.”

“It does leave one very tired and exhausted, doesn’t it? This horrible pandemic. It’s not a nice result,” she said in a conversation with National Health Service workers organized by the Royal London Hospital, per CNN.
