Queen Elizabeth news: Her Majesty makes TRIUMPHANT return to royal duties as she begins Jubilee year with busy schedule


THE QUEEN made a triumphant return to royal duties this weekend after marking 70 years on the throne – and has returned to Windsor Castle from Sandringham.

Last week Her Majesty declared that it was her “heartfelt desire” that the Duchess of Cornwall be known as Queen Consort once Prince Charles becomes King.

But after celebrating the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne at the weekend, she will now be returning to normal duties, a Buckingham Palace source said this week.

According to the Mail, a source said the monarch will continue to pick up duties, but will pace herself having been advised to take it easy by her doctors.

The source said: “‘It is about pacing her diary and ensuring there is flexibility.

“People are very mindful of the fact that at the age of 95, some days you wake up with aches and pains that you didn’t have the day before.

The Palace also confirmed the queen, who spent the occasion at her Sandringham residence in east England, had now returned to her Windsor Castle home where she will resume her official duties.
