The Queen has been forced to give up riding, her favourite pastime, because of chronic knee pain.
The condition has also meant that she has had to have a £1million lift installed at her Sandringham home, the Daily Mail has learned.
The Queen, 84, is understood to need an operation that could require up to four months’ recuperation.

For Heaven's sake, HM's health ought to be a priority. She shouldn't have to suffer. My grandmother recently had knee replacement surgery and is currently going through physical therapy. Although still sometimes painful at this point, much less so than prior to the surgery. HM needs to take care of herself first and foremost. Besides, she deserves the time off to recuperate. ...

She needs to STOP pushing herself and also start living more comfortably. No more outdoor picnics in all sorts of weather and no more driving herself and she needs to start living more comfortably too. I'm more than sure that these recent messes are just KILLING her health too.

She was OK handing out gongs this morning but the Queen has cancelled a visit to the British Museum tomorrow, blaming a heavy cold.

RoyalReporter Richard Palmer
Courtiers say it's a precautionary measure - part of the visit is outside. HM will still host a reception for 350 Australians tomorrow pm.

RoyalReporter Richard Palmer
Aides say the Queen's decision to cancel a visit tomorrow is precautionary. "She's fine but she's got a big trip to Australia next week."

The entire BRF has been basically mooching and enjoying the security that HM's work has created for them.


Title: Re: Queen cancels visit to British Museum
Post by: Yooper on October 14, 2011, 02:28:19 am
^Exactly, and, in addition, every donor who has contributed and every organization who has participated.   There is an 'acceptance of involvement' that is immovable, otherwise, the whole org shifts away from the BRF, and stays there until proof of intent, on a rather large scale, is indicated and worthy.

But, back to topic.  My prayers are with HM and I hope with all my heart that this is a mere blip in her health issues.  She is the bastion of hope for the monarchy.  However, maybe this is a good warning shot over the bow for those who think they don't need to be involved.  IOW, get off your a$$ already.

The Queen has been forced to cancel a visit to Swansea on Saturday to celebrate St David's Day, after developing symptoms of a stomach bug.

Buckingham Palace said the 86-year-old monarch is suffering from gastroenteritis.

She had been due to present members of 3rd Battalion The Royal Welsh with leeks to mark St David's Day.

She will now spend the weekend at Windsor and will be "assessed in the coming days".

It was due to be the first time that the Queen was to present leeks to 3 Royal Welsh, which is the reserve force of the regiment.

The event with MPs also won't be attended by the Queen. I don't understand why Charles cannot take the Queen events or even William. The State visit maybe not but the rest?

I hope she's in hospital only as a precaution and for her to get rest. The royals will have to reassess the future of the monarchy because  HM can't keep going the way she has. Charles will have to let the Yorkshire ans the other minor royals to help out  whether he likes it or not. I feel that a lot's going to be dumped on Harry, which won't be such a bad thing.
I feel a bit better after reading this:

Lying; HM is not good and she wouldn't be in the hospital if she weren't seriously ill.

It's been a decade since she was in the hospital and she wouldn't be in there if she hadn't been literally ordered there by the physician. Something is up and it isn't looking good. All the while, WK are in Switzerland yukking it up merrily like nothing is wrong at all. THEY should have been taking the load off of her the minute they married.

HM has looked like she's been uneasy and she's been seen as openly depressed since the Olympics. Since the engagement she has looked distressed and she's usually cool as a cucumber and always smiling and gracious. Since the Olympics she's been having a lot of physical ailments and has done some canceling.

HM is tough, likes to be one the go, but I wonder how much of this is genuine energy and enjoyment, or in fact is manic; it could be possible that she feels like she's slipping and losing her heritage and driving herself to sickness. I've done that myself. It could be the same with Philip.

The fact that she's cancelled all engagements is a red flag and is in fact worrying. One or two, natural, but for someone as dutiful as her, all? Chances are we're looking at someone who is being told that it's not something she's going to recover easily from, if she recovers at all.

I don't think that HM is going to go back to her old life of constant appearances and engagements. She's not tough, she's an elderly woman who is ill and has been deteriorating since before the Olympics. I don't see her as someone who is going to bounce back and she needs to now make changes and make the rest take over.


Title: Re: The Queen is in Hospital
Post by: rosielinks on March 03, 2013, 06:47:51 pm
Both PP and HM are now elderly and despite the best medical care in the world, they surely cannot continue their current schedules. Ageing takes its toll on everyone and she has always worked hard and has undertaken many duties. The past problems with WK and PW cannot have helped matters and the fact the those two continue to waltz around without a care for the reputation of the monarchy means that PP has taken his eye off the ball. He is on the wane and cannot keep the younger members under control and I think HM is tired of the drama.

If HM and PP cannot continue their workload and allow PC to act as regent, I am convinced he will galvanise his staff to sort out PW's bad attitude and lack of concern for the opinion of the UK public. He will be ruthless in edging out the Midds once and for all. He will unleash all the dark forces.

Some of the gossip rags have for some time been saying that HM is gravely ill - no one has taken much notice as they are generally not considered reliable, but maybe they know something.


Title: Re: HM, Philip, and Illness
Post by: rosielinks on March 03, 2013, 06:50:00 pm

I have a bad feeling about this.

It has to happen sometime and I believe that HM isn't going to come out of this the same as she used to be.

Quote
the fact the those two continue to waltz around without a care for the reputation of the monarchy means that PP has taken his eye off the ball. He is on the wane and cannot keep the younger members under control and I think HM is tired of the drama.

It's too bad that the younger ones are so immature and unappreciative that they even have to be kept under control.

Deep down I don't think the younger royals have any idea just how close things are to collapse and one day they might have to face a life without HM's reputation and work past protecting them. HM is the only one who is keeping the rest of them from being driven out of their palaces and posh lifestyle and into excel or something worse. Princess Anne isn't going to live a good life once HM is gone; too many have had to put up with her rudeness and Zara has no clue of life outside of the enclosure of the wealthy privileged life that HM's work has kept her in. After all, HM is the one the nation respects.

I mention these two because despite the vaunted no-nonsense reputation, they are in my view able to behave this way because they are kids/grandkids of HM, not because they are so accomplished that they can get away with it.

If HM and PP cannot continue their workload and allow PC to act as regent, I am convinced he will galvanise his staff to sort out PW's bad attitude and lack of concern for the opinion of the UK public. He will be ruthless in edging out the Midds once and for all. He will unleash all the dark forces.

Title: Re: The Queen is in Hospital
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 04, 2013, 08:29:08 am
first, I think it's disgusting how the RF isn't rushing to her to support her; it might not be 'what they do,' but this would be a fine time to show sincere concern and appreciation for all that she has done for them in keeping them afloat on her back.

I am seriously disgusted that WK are just merrily carrying on as if nothing is the matter.

Second, the palace has a history of lying so it wouldn't surprise me if HM was in fact worse off. Monarchs don't just go to the hospital as a 'precaution,' they go there because there is something seriously wrong with her and my instinct is telling me that HM is in fact close to death.

This is morbid, but my instinct has been wrong only when I'm in denial of something. I don't think HM is going to get better, much less throw this off. They wouldn't have cancelled all her engagements with no more pending if this were something trivial.

HM doesn't like a fuss. She is very old-school and stoic, just like PP in fact.

She would not want a flurry of different royals turning up at the hospital creating a media frenzy and sparking more speculation about her health.

I agree it is worrying because I am sure HM likes all her health checks to be done under the radar without press knowledge. She absolutely would not go to hospital if she did not have to. I bet the doctors had to force her.

Since the Queen was in Hospital for such a short length of time maybe she was just trying to bring their reputation back after Kate's disastrous unnecessary stay.

IMO both of them have excellent health, esp HM.  Although it's not true to say she is hardly ever sick.  She has had a few colds/sinus infections I think, and missed the occasional engagement.

To me, she is looking remarkably older in the last few months.  She still smiles though, and keeps on working and thinking of others.

I wish they would take a leaf out of Beatrix and Benedict's books, and finally take some time for themselves.  Not going to happen though. 

I've prepared myself for the inevitable happening any time within the next 5 years.  Will be extremely surprised if she makes it much past 90.

I always thought that HM would live past 100 just like her mother. However, I think HM has had a lot more stress and responsibilities than HM mum and these have taken their toll. I agree that HM has been looking a little peaky/annoyed over the last couple of years. I am pretty sure she is horrified by the mess PW has got himself into, and because of the problems with PD the palace has had to tread carefully. I think she knows PW and WK could spell the end of the monarchy, but she has no idea how to deal with it and is probably not in the mood to either.

True CathyJane, but time stops for no one and illness and body weakness comes with old age. The woman has been working for many years ,longer than most people her age in the Western world. Her mother lived a long time but fact is, she did not have the burden of being the monarch and the stress that comes with it.

Have any of you read this curious story about the nurse at the hospital wearing a masonic belt buckle. David Icke pointed it out and the picture did appear in full on the DM but they have suddenly reduced it so the belt buckle is cut off. You can see it in DI's story quite clearly.

Freemasonry is part of the UK establishment.  The Duke of Kent was grandmaster or something.  Also Prince Michael and probably every adult male in the family are masons too.  They don't allow women to join.  Women make the sandwiches and leave.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, or an apologist for freemasonry.  They donate large amounts of money to charities, so maybe that's why they have so much influence in things like private London hospitals.

^I find it quite interesting... George VI died early because of (a) smoking like a chimney his whole life and (b) stress brought on by misbehaving family members.  I find it really sad that the same kind of family stress is affecting HM's health.  But, like all of us, she is responsible for her choices in life.  She should have nipped things in the bud early on with Waity.  There must be one hell of a strong reason why she didn't, because she's now paying for it with her health.


Title: Re: The Queen is in Hospital
Post by: Spice on March 06, 2013, 01:30:31 am
^That's the main reason I do admire her... her work ethic and her concern for others.  Granted, she's not concerned enough to allow a referendum on the monarchy, but on a personal level she always seem to put others first and is genuinely kind to the people she meets, no matter where they are from.

I'm an ardent republican (recently converted from monarchism thanks to Willy's decision to marry Waity)... but I really like the Queen as a person, and I think most people do.  I just want the monarchy to end with Chuck.

If William wasn't so selfish and lazy, I bet there would be less support for republicanism.  Allowing him to get away with his behaviour is playing right into republicans' hands.  I wish HM had called his bluff when he was 19/20 and allegedly said he didn't want to be King.  But I know that would have been a very hard thing for her to do.

George VI also had to lead the nation symbolically into the war and end up being in Buckingham Palace while the Blitz came through. HM as a child never had the guts to end up defying her parents in anything and in the past, the only man to cause trouble was Edward VIII and he at least had some decency while his father was alive. HM has never faced problems and dealt with them, so go figure, William and his parents ended up running haywire and now she has even more stress.

Post by: Spice on March 08, 2013, 03:40:27 am
I shudder when I think of history repeating itself like this... maybe PW is like Edward VIII, keeping a lid on things while the old monarch is still alive, only to get 100 x  worse once on the throne himself.

Its so ironic, QEQM spent her whole life trying to avoid history repeating itself, but within weeks/months of her death, in comes Waity and Carole Middleton.

If the Queen Mother had learned from history, she would have learned that married women aren't 'safe' at all. After all, Wallis was married and Camilla was the same. A total bitter irony that all of the QM's battles for the RF was all for nothing.

Doctors are baffled by Queen's illness

THE Queen has revealed that her doctors have no idea what is wrong with her – 13 days after she fell ill.



Quote
She has cancelled her public engagements for the rest of the week and will work from home after struggling to overcome a debilitating illness that has seemingly left medical experts baffled.

The 86-year-old monarch will hold a Privy Council meeting at Buckingham Palace today and host other scheduled meetings there.

But her doctors have advised that she is not well enough to go out of the palace on public engagements.

She told Kamalesh Sharma, the Commonwealth Secretary General: “They’re not sure what’s the matter with me.”

The Palace has said she is suffering from the “symptoms of gastro-enteritis” but the stomach bug symptoms are associated with different illnesses.

She is believed to have undergone a series of assessments during a 24-hour stay in hospital starting on March 3 and is thought to be still awaiting the results of some tests. In the meantime she has been advised to rest and take on a reduced workload.

A senior royal aide said: “We are shaping her programme to meet her needs. She has made a decision to concentrate on making a full recovery before continuing her programme of public engagements.”

Would be good for HM to have a bit of time out. Lord knows she has earned it.

It's time for the others to take their turn - it may be a good thing for Prince Andrew, for example, to show he is capable of dealing with foreign and home-grown dignitaries.

As PW and WK fail to step up to the plate, they are showing their true value to the UK and it is not going unnoticed. I hope HM continues to rely upon her children for help. It is sending out a strong message.

Surely his sons have to step up first.

The Yorks aren't needed as there are 15 now and that is way too many.  Alexandra has done nothing this year and even the Duchess of Gloucester has done very few.

It is William, Kate and Harry who have to pick up the slack and no one else.

Andrew already does more than anyone other than his older siblings and The Queen - I know he doesn't get the press coverage for that but reading the CC clearly shows that, along with a poster on RF who does a week by week analysis of total engagements.

The York girls also do things, such as the trip to Germany on behalf of the government, and other charity work but in their own time and with no official recognition from The Queen and it is The Queen who decides what engagement is official and what isn't so the girls, who have done more than William and Kate this year get no credit because The Queen refuses to have that recorded in the CC.

I think Bea and Eugenie are strong members of the BRF. Bea has a kind heart and has charm and is a good speaker. Eugenie is still largely untested but I like her spirit in bringing Cressida into the fold - she is showing some feistiness after Waity's mean-spiritedness towards her sister.

I liked it when HM had Bea and Eug in her carriage at Christmas after WK And PW skived off to Berkshire. I really like the Yorks.

The thing is Princess Anne, the Wessex's and Andrew already work really hard for the Crown. They already do more than William and Kate, but the press ignores it.

If Pr.Charles cuts off Princess Anne, Wessex's and the Yorks from working on Royal duties when he becomes King and just depends on his immediate family, I think he's going to be terribly short handed.

Camilla seems very lazy and like she'd rather be home.

Kate seems lazy, the Palace needs to put her to task after the baby is born and make her WORK.

William seems to not care and wants to hide unless pushed out by the Palace on Royal duties.

Harry seems to be finding his footing by taking on  his mother's charities and his own, but needs to be put on more things.

Sophie is always working and doing charities, but the press acts as if she doesn't exist, same with Edward.

Andrew works hard, but the press only writes negatively about him , so his hard work gets ignored.

Charles is insane if he truly thinks JUST his family will be able to handle all the duties for the Crown, it will be utterly impossible. He is going to find he needs everyone I think.

There is a reason the Queen had Sophie fill in last week, because she is a hardworker and the Queen knew she could handle things.
Pr.Charles needs to think again about what he might be planning for the future.

ITA SG it is time for Charles to realize that his little fantasy will not work because his little family wants to do the bare minimum.

I think the York Sisters do charity from the heart and not just to get recognition for doing royal duties. I think they would rather continue with their lives the way they have them set up as opposed to being royal workers. (working royals)  :tehe: there is not really such a thing.

I like the York girls too. Eugenie does quite lot for the orthopedic hospital that treated her condition. She visits patients that have had the same treatment. On the day of the Christmas royal family gathering she had been at the hospital giving out presents in the morning. She also raised funds.

http://metro.co.uk/2012/06/10/princess-eugenie-raises-9000-for-charity-with-challenging-night-bike-ride-462184/

Eugenie does a lot for this charity and seems very passionate about it. That's something that Kate seems to lack, she's not passionate about a cause. She just seems to be going through the motions and although she smiles and grins there is nothing there.

The press will be sadly disappointed because it may be 20+ yrs, still before William and Kate get the Throne. I doubt William will excude youth in his 50's. Kate may still be around flipping her hair  :tehe:, but NOW Magazine has a article already saying and showing Kate's grey hair coming in!

David Cameron’s decision to delay the State Opening of Parliament by a month because he has run out of policies has caused a clash with Buckingham Palace – after courtiers warned it could overburden the Queen, who turns 88 next month.

They objected after the Prime Minister told the Palace he intended to move the Queen’s Speech to June 4, giving her and Prince Philip – 93 on June 10 –just 24 hours to recover before they travel to France for a three-day visit to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day.

Downing Street then suggested bringing the Queen’s Speech forward a day to June 3 – only for the Palace to point out it would clash with a garden party she is hosting.

After what a Palace spokesman last night described as a ‘constructive dialogue’, the Queen eventually agreed to June 3 after being told there was no other date available and that failing to choose one would cause a constitutional crisis.

It means the Queen will face a gruelling five days.

She will attend the State Opening of Parliament and read the Queen’s Speech, which sets out the Government’s legislation for the coming year.

Maybe HM should do a routine of work that her servants do.

Interestingly, I just remembered that they all retire before eighty since after all, they don't' have limos and people doing the diary appointments and don't have people cleaning their messes after them.

Of course, HM works harder than most pensioners!

If they follow the precedent of past illness they will tell us if there is a major concern e.g. when Philip was in hospital for Christmas in 2011 there were updates, initially every few hours and then daily, until they were clear there was no danger at the time. The same thing when he was admitted to hospital on the two subsequent occasions - regular updates.

HM isn't in hospital and if she was that ill she would be there. In fact if there were any major concerns she would have stayed in London and thus much closer to the best hospital care in the country.

It is usual these days for there to be little, if any, coverage of the Boxing Day shoot as HM stopped allowing press access to that part of the estate after the 'Edward hitting the dog' photos some years back. As a result there is no press around to tell anyone what is happening.

If she doesn't go to church on Sunday - then maybe there will be time to be concerned - but not less than a week after we were told she has a 'bad cold' but was well enough to fly in a helicopter (not something generally advised for people who have massive concerns with breathing etc after only the day after we were told she had a 'bad' cold.

I have read she has been told to stay indoors - and so is taking care of her health but other than that no updates - which says to me - 'no news is good news'.

Most people take at least a week to recover from a cold with older people taking a little longer.

Sunday will be the first day I start to think there is something more going on as she will have had a week and a half inside, other than a helicopter ride. I will also be keeping a eye on the CC (assuming it is ever updated online again - hasn't been since the 19th December) as she usually does an engagement after each church service in January such as presenting an award to the best student in Sunday School during the past year - small potatoes maybe but still an engagement none the less.

Is she at 'death's door'? I suspect not or she would be in hospital and that would have been announced.

This coming Sunday - New Years Day.

I wrote something similar on Monday, Australian time I think (I didn't post anywhere on Christmas Day as I was away from home with my family and we didn't know that the Queen wasn't going to go to church until Sunday evening Sydney time.

She normally goes to church every Sunday but at Balmoral and Sandringham the CC records it as 'divine service was held at xxxx church'. There is no list of who attended although at Sandringham there is often a photo of two of those attending as many people go down there to see the royals just as they do on Christmas Day.

I don't think HM is going to become the same as she was BEFORE William decided to shatter his family and nation with the engagement announcement. I do know that HM has probably been deteriorating since and it's probably jarring that she's at a point where she can't just keep plugging along. It's not like she's going to be able to relax her vigilance, she's likely going ot have to keep on trucking along. During the Wales' wars, she was struggling with her health.

From the DM

The Queen may STILL not be well enough to attend church on New Year's Day a week after she missed Christmas prayers with a 'heavy cold'
No decision yet on whether the monarch will be well enough to attend service
The sovereign was forced to delay her Christmas plans because of a 'heavy cold'
The illness meant the Queen missed the traditional Christmas Day service

I truly think this is the beginning of the end for HM and Philip. HM hasn't been the same since the wedding in 2011 and since Harry started messing with Meg, HM has been looking more and more down. The loss of her friends has been a blow, but I think seeing Harry ruin himself has just made things all the worse.

I think there was a falling out with William who wanted his way or the highway and she insisted he move to London and take on full time duties. William looked very sulky on Christmas. I think she took to her bed to cope with the tension. Something is amiss.At least Harry and her other grandchildren showed up for the services with the Royals.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 01, 2017, 01:57:20 am
Dealing with the effects of William and Kate's antics would be enough to break even the strongest and trying to get him roped in would in fact certainly undo the strongest person. Trying to handle both, it's no wonder HM has collapsed and can't take anymore. No one could at this point in time. The situation is a living nightmare and it's realistic that HM won't get up out of bed since if she did, she would have to somehow get the situation under control and she can't.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: KatherineTheGreat on January 01, 2017, 03:29:29 am
I also worry that the behavior of young royals is affecting HM's health. We can't know how much she does or does not internalize. But obviously the combination of PW and KM taking on fewer duties and PH's popularity going down could be a factor. PW, KM, PH should be taking this into consideration imo, even if the cold is a coincidence. 


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 01, 2017, 03:48:14 am
HM has done so much more than the younger royals and that alone is a disgrace. HM should be enjoying her life more, not having the younger royals skive off and indulge in instant gratification. The Yorkies could be doing a lot more and could in fact at least stay out of the jet set scene and not make a scandal of themselves. Second, the princes and Kate should be doing so much more and should in fact be staying out of trouble as well. I think HM is aware of how much is going to go down in 2017 and she just can't handle it anymore.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: marion on January 01, 2017, 04:06:49 am
Unfortunately ER is paying the price for sticking her head in the sand  for so long  and allowing the lazies to shirk royal duties and behave like a couple of spoilt rich kids

As for Beatrice and Eugenie, they have been told they are not part of the new slimmed down monarchy so is it really fair to criticise them for not doing more?


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 01, 2017, 04:09:38 am
At least the Yorkies could do is NOT get mixed up with shady types. They could lead perfectly respectable solid lives of their own and basically NOT allow their mother to piggy-back on their status.

As for HM's evasiveness, yes, HM is paying the price for that in full. She made horrible mistakes through omission and that is what usually gets us in the end.

I said earlier in the week that if she didn't go to church today then maybe things are more serious so my next indication that things are more serious than we think is 'where is Charles'?

He is normally in Scotland at this time of the year but if he is at Sandringham maybe things are more serious.

I wouldn't use the fact that George VI died at Sandringham as an indication that that is how the Queen will do things as he was out shooting the day before he died and had only just sent his heir presumptive on a multi-month tour of the Empire. That wouldn't have been allowed to happen if anyone truly thought he was at death's door.

We know Harry has been off partying in London - normal for him at this time of the year.

The Wessexes usually stay at Sandringham until the kids are due back at school.

The Yorks normally go to Switzerland so again if they are at Sandringham maybe things are more serious.

Anne and her family also usually have left Sandringham by now and Zara is often Down Under for the Magic Millions Race Meeting and Auctions later in January. As far as I have heard she hasn't cancelled that trip - another sign that things aren't that serious. No one would bat an eyelid if, given her recent miscarriage, it had been announced that she was cancelling that trip.

Everything to do with one's health is potentially serious at ninety years old. However, it may well be that the Queen just has a touch of bronchitis. If she is wheezing and coughing and spluttering she is better off warm and indoors than attending a church service, much as she probably wants to.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: Alexandrine on January 01, 2017, 12:08:42 pm
I have been ill due to a cold for more than a week and I am not near 90 at all. If she got one like mine she could stay in bed for at least three weeks...

Fo we know when her next event is?


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: Rosella on January 01, 2017, 12:22:38 pm
^ As far as I know there's no engagements for the Queen in January. She usually stays at Sandringham until early February, when the anniversary of her late father's death has passed. (He died at Sandringham in early February 1952.) She then returns to London.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: meememe on January 01, 2017, 12:43:54 pm
She normally receives someone each Sunday after church and present some sort of award. For instance on the 3rd January last year:

Divine Service was held in Sandringham Parish Church this morning. The Bishop of Hereford preached the Sermon. The Queen presented The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Academic Excellence at Springwood High School, King's Lynn, to Samuel Sanders, who was introduced into Her Majesty's presence by Mr. Andrew Johnson, the Headmaster.

This is the equivalent Sunday to today. It will be interesting to see the CC for today (assuming the British monarchy website are actually going to get it together this year) to see if something similar happened inside the big house.

This is a normal Sunday when she is at Sandringham.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 01, 2017, 01:11:54 pm
Yeah, this is more serious. I think HM might in fact be literally declining at this point in time.

Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: meememe on January 01, 2017, 09:06:36 pm
Anne, when asked how her mother is said, 'better' while Tim said 'no too bad'.

Edward is the most senior member of the family, in terms of line of succession, at Sandringham at the moment so I don't think this is all that serious.

I really don't think, if she was at death's door, that Charles at least wouldn't be there and Andrew definitely would be there with his daughters. None of them are there and nor are William or Harry.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 01, 2017, 09:15:46 pm
You never know; Anne would of course say HM is all right and would of course end up promoting HM. for all we know, the RF could in fact be there in full and be engaged in a vigil. I give it another week; if she's not up and walking around, or communicative, I think we should prep for a death watch.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: meememe on January 01, 2017, 09:31:29 pm
The reports are that she is up and walking around and doing the boxes every day as per usual. She just isn't going outside. Given the weather and being sick I don't blame her.

If more members of the family were there they would have gone to church, particularly Charles who is a regular attendee every Sunday, although the press don't report it every Sunday, just as they don't show the Queen going to church every Sunday, which she does.

The recipient was Ray Wheaton who's been made a Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order. Mr Wheaton is the Queen's Page of the Chambers.

the first official engagement of 2017 has been carried out by HM The Queen at Sandringham. This is a normal type of January event for HM - to present awards etc indoors usually after Sunday services although this appears to have been on Tuesday.

^It's good to know she is up and around. I think they should start scaling back her duties and allocating them to other members of the Royal Family so that she will be able to continue as long as possible. She might not want this, but the reality is that she can only do so much these days. I know some of her patronages were allocated to others recently but it was still only a small percentage.

I have zero sympathy for HM, but if she has had the cold/virus my husband has picked up then I can understand the day by day basis of whether she does something or not.  It hits hard, constant headache, no energy, no anything really.  Many people have it, many for anything up to 6 weeks.  My husband felt "ok" the other morning, went out and came back zonked out and been indoors ever since.  Such a nasty cold/virus.  If she has that, and she is an awful lot of years older than my husband, then no wonder she is resting up.  And of course no doubt with 5* gold crown medical treatment, such as they can give. Basically it seems to be a nothing works for it and you have to let it run its course.  Unless it goes to a chest infection, in which case antibios are required.  Just hope I don´t get it, it really is mean.

A big :flower: to all of you forummers who have been ill recently. I was so bad I was vomiting for two hours and then it started coming out of my nose and mouth at the same time. Needless to say I was in ER and spent weeks recovering so I can understand HMQ being uncertain about making public appearances. Heck, I was terrified to step outside and do anything at all. I didn't want to get a relapse. It is good to hear the queen is up and about and recovering and I don't believe it is too serious but she is at a rather advanced age.

Sky news showing HM and pp etc but no lamebridges or medds  -  maybe instructed not to.  Can´t somehow see her inviting medds to church, and especially not on a non royal day as such, just and ordinary Sunday.  Probably at AH with the odious duo and made sure they gatecrashed.  I don´t think HM that low that she would invite that vile family, they are just making it look like that IMO.

Post by: meememe on January 08, 2017, 07:13:59 pm
It is a public church service so anyone can go. It isn't as if the only people who are going are the royals. This isn't a private chapel but just the one used by the royals when at Sandringham. She doesn't therefore need to 'invite' them as anyone can go although they do have to go through a security screen. Most don't go to the service as it is a full Christian service and you are expected to put money in the collection etc (this in the one time The Queen actually carries money so she can put stuff in the collection).

I have also heard that the Middleton's were at lunch with the Queen this week - at her invitation. She does actually like them (that is what I am hearing from my sources).

A poster on another blog posted the below from a journo friend in the area -:

A local journalist from East Anglia press who covers these events said both PP and HM in particular looked very ill. She could barely make it to the car. She was kept wrapped up in blankets all the way despite the car being heated.

They were told she wouldn't be attending as still needed to recuperate. Then the journalist was called out by news desk early Sunday to say she would be attending.  Royal Contacts told them off the record that there is considerable disquiet over the Mansons.  It may well be put around that she invited them but that's just spin so HM isn't accused of being snobbish.

 It was reported that HM was determined not to leave it to them to take centre stage and assigned two of her most trusted aides to keep them in check. Aides are particularly angry that they took advantage of her illness in the way. You have to see Lady Hussey's face like thunder accompanying pip squeak to know this is correct.

^^^   Yes, I read that too. Also read on another forum that they had also noted how one of the Aides assigned to keep them in check was seen next to orangina and her face was a picture, she was not amused or happy about it  -  and who can blame her.  A lady of class and dignity having to be with the sink estate family - enough to give her the vapours.

I also received an email a short while ago from my cousin who lives close to Sandringham, think I have mentioned her before, very involved in the neighbourhood, charities in the area and etc, and follows the rf closely with good connections.  A friend of her son is a journo down that way, gets to know the low down and he more or less said the same as above.  So two reliable sources saying the same thing.  She also said that all the royal followers in that area are totally disgusted with bill medd and his outlaws, the treatment he has given his granny this Christmas, his arrogance over wanting every blade of grass at AH out of bounds, etc. etc. etc.  He is not well liked or popular down there.  It is also said that bill medd is very rarely down there, and when he is they always know because he always arrives in the chopper, no car for him  -  nice when it is free and the poor old taxpayers are working to fund it.

So, does beg the question, if he is not at AH, or EAAA, then just where is he  -  be interesting to know that one wouldn´t it.  Dingley Dell maybe, or somewhere completely different?   Hmmmm, would love to know.

Bill medd should be disgusted with himself, pulling a fast one like that, knowing full well his 90 year old grandmother is still recuperating.  My husband is in week three of this dreadful cold/virus/whatever it is, and still washed out and not able to do much other than shower and rest, so all that phoney business being pushed out by paps about "HM invited medds to tea earlier in the week" is just that.  No way would she be fit enough to invite anyone around to tea, let alone the vile medds.  It really is a very nasty virus, and especially for a 90 year old.  Nice one bill medd, you keep showing us your true colours, and they get worse every time, but you really have dropped to medd sewer level this time.  I find it very hard to believe he actually loves or care for his grandparents, because he gives no impression of it whatsoever.  What a nasty, evil person he is, and probably always has been.  They really should throw him out of the rf, take him out of line of succsssion and take his truly vile inlaws with him, never to be seen in the UK again.   He keeps pushing the boundaries, about time the boundaries were shut down and keep him locked out, take away he taxpayer funding and let him rot in h*ll with his sink estate outlaws.

Unbelievable the way he is treating his granny when she has been so ill and now recuperating, she should never have been out in that cold weather yesterday, and I am sure the effort of actually getting ready and going out wore her out.  My husband is whacked after he has had a shower, and she is 90.  Bill medd really is one son of a b*tch, big time.  Council cath stalked and got him, but I would put money on him treating her like the dirt beneath his shoes, he really is a nasty, mean piece of work.

Why HM allows it to continue is beyond me.  It is also alleged there is a big rift between him and chucky these days, can quite believe that.

@ India  -  yes, she most certainly looked very disgusted, but then I would be too, and I am not a titled lady.

@ Val and Spitfire  -  yes, how corny to choose your own initials, mind you, would never think highly of anyone connected to the medds, no need to test their brains, mixing with that lot they can´t have any is my view.

jsm007  -   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:  Doesn´t get any cornier does it.  And James Allenby, who sounds just like jsm007  -  told you, no brain cells lol lol lol

I think William always had a mean streak. An example was when he exiled his parents from having lunch with him on a parents day at Eton. He asked Tiggy Legge Bourke after his mother had packed a lunch for him. Fortunately the lunch did not go to waste, Harry got it. Also, during the break up with Kate, he was pictured groping another woman and reportedly danced on a table yelling I'm Free. Kate wanted what she waited for no matter what. But another woman might have kicked him to the curb. I think he is arrogant clinging to the ambulance job where he rarely shows up to avoid stepping up his royal work.

Willy Woo Woo is a disgusting sadistic little jerk who loves having his spoiled a$$ being kissed repeatedly. He needs to be taken to the wood shed for this latest abuse of his grandmother. And yes, it is abuse. Taking advantage of his monarch in her weakened state. Demanding all sorts of things.

Totally agree wth all recent posts..some very interesting info coming out regarding ER's visit to church yesterday

Waity has no self respect whatsoever..no woman with any would have been will's mattress for so long just to get that wretched ring.

As for the way willy treats his grandmother..it  is appalling,  completely heartless and so disrespecful.   She probably only allows this to continue as she old, frail and doubtless couldn't stand the fallout.  I am sure TPTB would be only too happy to act to deal with the middletons but IMO nothing will be done while ER is alive. I don't think PC will hold back

I guess it's understandable for James to support his fiancee but it's a pity he doesn't have the "the round objects "  to do so  as himself instead of hiding behind these ridiculous names

I think HM just can't do it anymore; she hasn't the strength or the ability to even get him to put on  a facade of respect and cooperation.

Then just get rid of him.  He has done enough harm and caused his family to be a laughing stock world wide.  Make him the laughting stock  -   toss him out and the vile medds with him and take the bratlets as will, the rf don´t need them, plenty of heirs to follow, they are superfluous to requirements.  HM should not let him run amok like this, they did that church parade to to makeher feel uncomfortable.  They really as one of the most disgusting families I have ever come across.  Even council estate famiies treat their own better.

   The ones who stress The Queen are Charles, his mistress and Andrew... she never knows what they might do next.  

   The Queen is apparently happy to see William spend time with his family .... although I don't think she expected him to spend quite sooo much time with them.   :tehe:

   Lady Susan Hussey has quite the reputation in her own right.

   Pippa's fiance has an odd body shape, one wonders if a good tailor might be able to help him.

   Friends of mine who were there said The Queen looked healthier than P. Philip.

I thought HM looked healthier than Prince Phillip too.  Especially since HM had been so ill - I thought Phillip looked awful - bruises around his nose and under his eyes too.

I also think the periodic blurbs of Charles plans for his coronation and his being a "shadow" king do not exactly relax the Queen. I think it ghoulish.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: meememe on January 11, 2017, 09:34:54 pm
The first plans for Charles' coronation were actually published in 1953 with the Queen as the person making a number of suggestions. She was even planning for his coronation when she had the annointing oil made - enough for two. They had lost the recipe during the war and a perfumerer was called in to remake it but the Queen insisted on there being enough made for hers and Charles'.

She has also been heavily involved in the plans for not only Charles' coronation - ensuring that although she won't see it she will have had a lot of import to it as well as regularly reviewing the plans for her own funeral. It is what royals do.

The anti-Charles' are the ones who see things as 'ghoulish' because they don't understand that this is simply the normal procedure and has been happening since the Queen's own coronation in 1953. The things they update, for instance, are the names of Commonwealth GGs, PMs and Vice-Presidents who will be invited and where they will sit along with the Ambassadors and High Commissioners. Rather than have to do a rush job at the actual time it is easier to update the documents every time there is a change to the name of the person holding that position and when that happens papers like the DM go to town and the anti-Charles brigade get into a lather.

By the way there are also plans in place for Charles' funeral and William's coronation. All senior royals - those who would probably get a State funeral (the Queen, Philip, Charles, Camilla, William, Kate and George) have files in place. They get State Funerals as the monarch and spouse - of course if they don't become the spouse of the monarch then they won't get a State Funeral.

This is simply the Earl Marshal being prepared and doing his job. The fact that the current Duke of Norfolk is a friend of Charles' is irrelevant. The Duke of Norfolk can *despise* the incoming monarch and will still be the one organising the coronation, weddings, state opening of parliament, funerals etc.

I hope ER lives a while longer. Charles is ready, but W/K/H need to transition to doing more royal duties; William is not ready to be Prince of Wales. He's not a child still being trained for his role; if a child becomes king, there is a regent in place until he comes of age. William is almost 35, would not have a regent, and needs to be ready.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 12, 2017, 12:45:32 am
William needs to be given an ultimatum and answer if whether or not he wants to be King; this has to be decided on now and basically either he gets to work or he gets out of the BRF/succession for good. Whether or not he leaves the country is iffy, but he has to be told to state his intentions.

If he stepped down I think he would be too big a distraction to remain in the UK. Problem now is that he has two kids, he really should have stepped down before or just after the marriage if he was going to. I think the kids would have to stay in the UK, especially George, as he's in line to be king. Charlotte would also need to be prepared in case something happens to her brother or he decides to step down.

Not sure how ER would handle all that if it did happen, it was a very big deal when her uncle abdicated. A York princess suddenly became the next Queen.


Title: Re: Queen Elizabeth II : Health Rumours
Post by: sandy on January 12, 2017, 02:18:07 am
William IMO will not step down, he's too used to the perks and privileges now. He'll continue to try to get by on excuses made for him.

HM needs to stop fixating on that and understand that sometimes, stepping aside would in fact be healthier for William. It's the role that is in fact causing him a tremendous amount of psychic pain and has likely prevented him from getting substantial psychiatric help.

Failing that, he needs to be allowed to leave Kate and find a retreat where he can get help.
