Queen Elizabeth II Steps Down From Hosting Her Platinum Jubilee Royal Garden Party Due To Ill Health

Her Majesty the Queen has stepped down from hosting her famous Royal Garden Parties due to ill health, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Queen Elizabeth II is the longest reigning British Monarch in history, taking the throne aged 25 in 1953 following the death of her father King George VI the year before.

Now she's 96 years old, and during her reign has seen so much:

British Decolonization.

The fall of the Soviet Union.

The end of the British Empire.

The death of Diana Princess of Wales

The UK entering and exiting the EU and the EEC.

The construction and destruction of the Twin Towers and the World Trade Center in New York City.

The War on Terror.

The Covid-19 Pandemic.

And now the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

But the Queen recently has been dealt massive blows to her:

Prince Harry and Princess Meghan's exile to the United States.

Prince Andrew's court cases.

The death of her husband Prince Phillip the Duke of Edinburgh.

Catching Covid-19.

Needing to use a cane.

And a lack of energy have all made many speculate if the Queen is fit for the throne in her current state.

A Royal Envoy for the Queen will be present at the Royal Garden Party, but if it's a member of the Royal Family or an Interceder is unknown at this time.
