Prince Charles has shared a candid update on the Queen’s health amid concern from fans as he revealed things aren’t quite as “easy” as they once were.
- The Prince of Wales has opened up about the Queen’s health during his royal visit to Jordan with the Duchess of Cornwall.
- Prince Charles explained that Her Majesty is “alright” as he reflected on how things have changed for his mother over the years.
- This royal news comes as the royal engagement the Cambridge children have been banned from attending has been revealed.
Prince Charles has opened up about his mother the Queen during his royal trip to Jordan with the Duchess of Cornwall as concern about her health persists amongst royal fans. Many will no doubt have been overjoyed to see the Queen stepping out with her beloved Corgi for her first in-person engagement in many weeks at Windsor Castle on November 17th. This came just days after the Queen’s sprained back meant she was forced to cancel her appearance at the Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday, much to her disappointment.
Instead the Prince of Wales laid a wreath on her behalf and after an important call with Her Majesty, Prince Charles began his overseas royal tour with Duchess Camilla in Jordan. The couple returned to Kate Middleton’s former home and will soon move on to Egypt before their visit ends.
During this tour, Prince Charles made a sweet gesture that could show his granddaughter Lilibet’s christening might be imminent. And that’s not the only personal insight to emerge, as he gave a very honest answer when asked about the Queen’s health.

As reported by Sky News (opens in new tab), he spoke to the media outlet at an event focusing on environmental issues and told them, “She's alright thank you very much, thank you”.
“Once you get to 95, it's not quite as easy as it used to be. It's bad enough at 73,” Prince Charles added, reflecting on his own age, having marked his 73rd birthday on Remembrance Sunday following the Queen’s back injury.
The Queen’s absence at the service came after she had been given advice to “rest” in recent weeks. Back in October it was announced by Buckingham Palace that the Queen had spent a night in hospital for “preliminary investigations” before returning to her Berkshire home in “good spirits”.
She had hoped to attend the COP26 climate summit, but pulled out due to ongoing health concerns, though she continued to carry out “light” duties. Since then anxious fans have been eager to see the Queen return to public life after a well-deserved period of rest.
Her recent audience at Windsor Castle showed the monarch looking relaxed and happy in a stunning autumnal floral dress, perhaps suggesting she might soon take on more in-person engagements.
In the meantime, Prince Charles has been observed taking an even greater royal role, attending COP26 and the Remembrance Service in his mother’s absence before undertaking his and Duchess Camilla’s Middle Eastern visit.

With the climate crisis a key theme of the trip and water, food and energy critical areas, the Prince of Wales told Sky News how they were trying to look at how more countries can provide “real opportunities” for big investments, both technology-wise and in “nature-based solutions”.
"And there are an awful lot of very ingenious ideas now, which could be brought to fruition,” Prince Charles declared.
