Queen Elizabeth Faces Another Major Shakeup In The Monarchy

It’s been a year of ups and downs for Queen Elizabeth II. Major milestones have passed, such as her Platinum Jubilee celebration, which marked 70 years of service as the monarch of the United Kingdom (via The New York Times). Thousands of adoring fans traveled from all over the world, joining the British public to celebrate the queen’s jubilee.

However, there have been several rough patches for the queen to overcome throughout the year as well. Her son, Prince Andrew, was dealing with the repercussions of his crimes against Virginia Giuffre. As a result, the queen stripped the prince of all of his royal titles (via CNBC).

Queen Elizabeth has also been dealing with several health issues this year. She had missed out on several of her favorite events due to both a previous coronavirus diagnosis, as well as ongoing mobility issues (per CNN). She has been laying low since the big celebrations, but recently made her first public appearance. The outing was met with shocking news.

The Queen Was In Scotland When Important Information Broke

For Her Majesty, going out hasn’t been an easy task this year. At 96 years old, it’s not surprising the queen — who has spent 70 years on the throne — isn’t moving along as well as she once did (via Newsweek). Her recent health struggles have caused her to take the back seat on some royal events, unable to attend functions in the way we are used to seeing her do so.

She hadn’t traveled for a public appearance since the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, however, she was able to make the trek to Scotland to visit First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, as reported by Hello! Magazine.

During her visit, some interesting things were going on behind the scenes in Scotland. According to People, the Parliament announced that they were going to be holding a second attempt at passing the Scotland independence referendum, which would allow it to become an independent country rather than part of Britain.

Only 44.7% voted yes the first time Scotland attempted this, however, a second vote will commence in October of 2023 (via People).
