The Queen Elizabeth Jubilee celebration dominated the news this past weekend, but there are a few odd moments that have really teased the internet…
Including when Prince Charles called Queen Elizabeth a “mummy”…
In recent years, people have understandably been more worried about the Queen.
Losing a partner who is over seventy must be terrible. And right after that, just a few months later, she received another painful blow.
At the time, according to friends, the queen used her dogs to cope with the grief of losing Philip…
The Queen is known to be a true animal lover, with one animal in particular always associated with Her Royal Highness.
The Queen was given her first corgi, Susan, for her eighteenth birthday in 1944.
It has been estimated that the queen had over thirty dogs during her reign, and they were all from the same family.
Her most famous dog is Monty, who appeared with her in a sketch for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics in London…
The Queen was planning on not having any more dogs after Vulkan, her dachshund-corgi cross, passed away last year. She only has 1 corgi named Candy left.
She made 2 new four-legged friends when Philip was hospitalized…
And their names had a truly special meaning…
Fergus was named after her uncle, Fergus Bowes-Lyon, who died in action during World War I.
The second dog, Muik, pronounced Mick, is a purebred Corgi named after Loch Muik, a favorite haunt of the royal family during their summer vacations.
When news of the new dogs broke, royal biographer Penny Junor said: “Her corgis are very important to her.”
“They have been closer to her over the years than any person. Corgis are very loyal and loving and they have never let her down.”
But, unfortunately, just a month after the death of Philip …
Her 5-month-old puppy Fergus has passed away.
Fergus was bought by Prince Andrew to help his mother deal with her grief.
But sources confirmed that Fergus passed away in May, just a month after she lost her husband.
The source said Sun: “The Queen is absolutely devastated.
“The puppies were brought in to cheer her up at a very difficult time.”
“Everyone concerned is upset as it happened shortly after she lost her husband.”
It seems that in trying to cope with her grief, Queen Elizabeth is struggling both physically and emotionally…
She was photographed in Westminster Abbey with her daughter at a Thanksgiving service…
To the centenary of the British Royal Legion.
But as soon as she got out of the car, people noticed something disturbing…
She used a cane to support herself, something she hadn’t seen in seventeen years.
The only time the Queen was photographed holding a stick was after knee surgery in 2003…
But she quickly recovered and stopped using it the following year, 2004.
The photos have clearly made a lot of people worry about her physical health…
However, while it may be a little unsettling, the Queen still appears to be her usual upbeat personality.
But royal doctors reportedly gave her a stern health warning.
And people are worried again…
The royal doctors reportedly ordered Queen Elizabeth to stop drinking.
According to Vanity Fair2 sources claim that doctors advised the queen to give up alcohol except on special occasions.
“The Queen has been told to forego her evening drink, which is usually a martini,” the source said.
“It doesn’t really matter to her, she doesn’t drink very much, but it seems a little unfair that at this stage in her life she has to forego one of the very few pleasures.”
Doctors are said to have warned her about alcohol to make sure she was as healthy as possible for her full schedule.
It also preceded the June celebration of her platinum anniversary.
Things went from bad to worse, however, as the queen suffered a dislocated back, resulting in her absence from the memorial service in London.
The service was supposed to be her first appearance after she was admitted to the hospital, after which doctors advised her to rest for 2 weeks and only do “duty duties,” according to Buckingham Palace.
Palace released statement ahead of the memorial…
“The Queen, having dislocated her back, decided with great regret this morning that she would not be able to attend today’s Sunday memorial service at the Cenotaph.”
“Her Majesty is disappointed to miss the service,” he continued.
“As in previous years, the Prince of Wales will lay a wreath in the name of Her Majesty.
“His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Lawrence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra, will attend the Cenotaph today as planned.”
The queen only missed 6 cenotaph ceremonies in the sixty-nine years of her reign…
But this is not the only engagement that had to be cancelled, as the Queen’s personal speech at the General Synod was also canceled and the Earl of Wessex attended instead.
While visiting the Synod, the Earl delivered a speech to bishops and clergy at the Church of England’s Westminster headquarters on behalf of the Queen, The Sun informed.
But what the queen said in her speech broke hearts…
In her speech, the Queen praised the Anglican Church for bringing “hope” during the pandemic.
A period of time she described as full of “anxiety, grief and weariness”.
“It is hard to believe that more than fifty years have passed since Prince Philip and I attended the very first meeting of the General Synod,” the count also read on her behalf.
“None of us can slow down the passage of time; and while we often focus on everything that has changed over the years, much remains the same, including the gospel of Christ and his teachings.”
She has shown her nation how motivated she is to carry out her duties.
When she returned to work after telling the military commanders that she could not move.
The Queen returned to work smiling and performing duties to her nation.
And she did it via a Zoom conference call.
The queen actually welcomed the ambassadors and definitely demonstrated her ability to act.
The virtual meeting was attended by Finnish Ambassador Jukka Siukosari with Mariella Siukosari and Jordanian Ambassador Manar Dabbas with Muna Abuhasan.
And she even managed to put on a charming smile for her audience.
Despite the tension from yesterday.
And it’s safe to say that the Queen has had a lot to stress about lately.
Especially after Prince Charles tested positive for the coronavirus.
And after the news that Prince Andrew paid out £12 million, Virginia Giuffre said she was sexually abused by him.
Which, according to Telegraphhe will pay with the money of Queen Elizabeth II, who also recently stripped him of all military ranks.
However, this does not prevent the Queen from continuing her work.
Including her participation in the Platinum Anniversary celebrations over the weekend…
The celebration marking the whopping 70th anniversary of the Queen’s reign drew crowds.
The vast majority of members of the royal family attended various ceremonies and events over the course of four days.
Prince William and Kate Middleton were there with their children.
Together with Prince Charles and his wife Camilla.
And, as always, all eyes were on the family in the hope of seeing some drama.
Especially between Kate Middleton and her son Prince Louis.
‘Cause it seemed like little Louis Indeed didn’t enjoy the holiday…
When he was spotted with a series of funny facial expressions that made the whole internet talking!
“My God!!!! I can’t!! Over mercy!! Prince Louis is so damn adorable!” one fan wrote.
Another agreed, adding, “Prince Louis is stealing the show again.”
However, others believe that Kate was “furious” with the behavior of the baby …
“He will be in trouble! Kate looks furious!” written by one person.
While some wonder if Kate is really mad at her child, others seem just happy to see the prince acting like a normal kid.
“So nice to see him acting like any other kid! They seem like great parents who are doing a brilliant job of raising their family!” written by one person.
“They may be royal, but they are still human!” said the other.
We have to say that we love this cheeky behavior!
But, this is not the only point that people paid attention to …
Because Prince Charles, referring to the Queen as a “mummy” in his anniversary speech, did turn some heads.
In his speech, the Prince of Wales thanked his mother for her seventy years of reign as queen…
“Your Majesty, Mommy, you met us and talked with us, you laugh and cry with us, and most importantly, you have been with us all these seventy years. You swore to serve for life. You keep delivering. That’s why we’re here. That’s what we’re celebrating tonight. These pictures on your house are the stories of your life and ours. So, Your Majesty, that is why we all thank you,” the speech reads. said.
And while Prince Charles drew a storm of applause from the crowd, social media was divided over how he chose the words for his mom.
one person wrote: “Something deeply unsettling about a 70-year-old man who says ‘Mommy’.
‘Prince Charles calls the queen a ‘mummy’ – a bit odd said another.
Other said that it “ruined” their year: “Prince Charles saying ‘mom’ actually ruined my year.”
“Prince Charles called Queen Liz a ‘mummy’: a new level of ick has been revealed” – another expressed.
But some just didn’t understand the problem: One man said before the ceremony that they were looking forward to him paying tribute to his mom.
“Thank you Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. You work in the service of the country, society and the world, often underestimated. Your sense of humor and gentleness are very similar to the cute touch of the “Mummy” queen, showing that you are in tune with the audience. Thank you all,” another wrote.
“Reading some pretty nasty comments because Prince Charles said, ‘Mommy. I don’t see anything special.” said anyone else.
