There was renewed speculation about Queen Elizabeth’s health on Monday after it was revealed that a traditional public welcoming ceremony, normally held outside Balmoral Castle to mark the start of the Queen’s summer vacation in Scotland, will be held behind closed doors this year becomes.

The event, which normally sees the Queen inspecting an honor guard outside the gates of Balmoral Castle, will now be held “privately within the grounds of Balmoral,” a royal source told The Daily Beast.

Last year’s event included the Queen’s inspection of a guard of honor and an encounter with a tiny Shetland pony, the official mascot of the Royal Regiment of Scotland. The ceremony is usually seen as the start of her summer holidays in Scotland, where she usually stays until October. This year the event will be held privately instead.

Marking the event as private means the Queen, who her aides have said is suffering from “episodic mobility issues”, will not be exposed to the close scrutiny of TV cameras, photographers, the media or the public.

As always, there are two perspectives.

One is to say that the Queen, as she progresses through her 97th year, should be recognized for her dedication to duty and the extraordinary schedule of events and activities, even in slightly modified form, that she maintains.

The opposite view is that appearing in public is one of the most important and fundamental responsibilities of their job. After all, it was the Queen herself who used to quip, “I have to be seen to believe it.”

This mindset concludes that if she is unable to perform basic duties such as attending church services and inspecting the troops, there is an argument for establishing a regency or even a full abdication, ushering in the reign of King Charles must be -hurry.

The Queen’s staff abhor even the slightest suggestion that Her Majesty would step down, and the Queen herself was keen to stress that she is going nowhere on her anniversary, saying in a message: “My heart was with you all; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family.”

The palace says there is no question of the Queen’s resignation and it is only common sense that adjustments and “comfort” adjustments are made to her schedule so she can continue to attend as many events as possible.

And if anyone thought the Queen was preparing to drift off into “retirement” at Balmoral, she has made it clear that is not the case by announcing she plans to travel to England in September, when Boris Johnson is expected to step down as Prime Minister and his successor will be appointed to carry out the formal duty of asking and inviting the new Prime Minister to form a government.

It is unusual for the Queen to interrupt her Balmoral break and her determination to travel to England to appoint a new Prime Minister seems like a clear attempt to signal that she is not ready to be written off just yet .
