Since a night in the hospital almost a year ago for unspecified examinations, the queen has been showing up less and less with declining health.
The Queen on Tuesday formalized the appointment of Liz Truss as Prime Minister, her 15th prime minister in 70 years. She had chosen to stay in Balmoral rather than return to London where the transition usually takes place due to her health issues.
Footage released by the palace showed the sovereign smiling and leaning on a cane while shaking hands with the new ruler.
“The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news coming out of Buckingham Palace this afternoon,” Liz Truss tweeted. “My thoughts – and those of everyone in the UK – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family.”
On Wednesday night, the palace announced the Queen had postponed an online meeting after her doctors advised her to rest.
For months she has been delegating an increasing part of her functions to her son Charles, who, in particular, held the speech from the throne in Parliament for the first time in May, one of her essential constitutional functions.
At the beginning of June, the British celebrated the 70th reign of Elizabeth II, the world’s oldest reigning monarch, for four days. She was almost absent from this platinum anniversary, appearing only twice briefly on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in front of tens of thousands of people.
A few weeks later, on the other hand, she appeared several times for public appearances in Scotland, showed herself smiling and with a walking stick at a military parade in Edinburgh at the end of June.
