After receiving her first COVID-19 vaccinations, the Queen Isabel, 94, and the Prince philip, 99, would be preparing for a second injection three to four weeks after the initial dose. On Saturday January 9, Buckingham Palace announced that the royal couple had been vaccinated at Windsor Castle, where they are kept in isolation, by a domestic doctor.
But on top of that, Her Majesty is making plans to return to work as soon as the national lockdown in England is lifted on the emergence of a new strain of the coronavirus. The monarch would be willing to resume her official duties as soon as government guidelines allow her to do so safely. She and her husband spent much of 2020 in isolation.
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are believed to be fully vaccinated in June, when the Royal family will meet in Trooping the Colour to celebrate the 95th birthday of the monarch. “His Majesty is keen to get back to doing what he does best, being visible,” a source told The Sunday Times. “His belief has always been ‘It has to be seen to be believed’ and that is still His Majesty’s opinion.”
Separately, a source told Vanity Fair that the Queen does not want scandals for her birthday on April 21. Trooping the Color will be the official celebration. Instead, plan a treat for Felipe, who will turn 100 on June 10. “The Queen wants the Duke to be the center of attention in June and that the great celebration for her is for her Platinum Jubilee in 2022,” the informant highlighted.
Trooping the Color will be the first royal gathering since all the royals attended Commonwealth Day in March 2020, which was one of the last royal engagements of the Prince harry and Meghan Markle. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hope to return to London to be at the celebrations for the veteran monarchs, “but their travel plans are highly dependent on the pandemic,” a friend told Vanity Fair.
