Last week Buckingham Palace announced the Queen had cancelled her planned trip to Northern Ireland over health concerns with it later revealed she had spent a night in hospital for tests.

Royal doctors sent the monarch to be seen by specialists in London on Wednesday.

Royal podcaster Gertude Daly, who runs the Gert’s Royal podcast, has spoken in an interview about the Queen’s stay in hospital and her age.

The royal podcaster said the Queen’s age suggests the busy schedule is “a lot for a 95-year-old.”

Gertrude told the Daily Star: “I think after having so many digital engagements during the pandemic, the Queen was very eager to go out and be seen by her people.

“I think the palace scheduled a rather ambitious few weeks of engagements in October. She’s had events scheduled in all four countries that make up the UK.”

She continued: “The Queen is undoubtedly disappointed to be forced to cancel her trip to Northern Ireland, especially as it has been years since her last visit.

“But the Queen also knows it is important to rest and not push herself too far.

“Cancelling the two-day visit to Northern Ireland, will, hopefully, mean the Queen is able to keep the rest of her schedule of engagements, included another trip to Scotland for the COP26 conference.”

She added: “I think most people would agree a round trip flight and two busy days of engagements is a lot for a 95-year-old. And if she isn’t feeling the best, it is a good idea to cancel.

“I think we need to understand that the Queen is only getting old, and will be slowing down.

“She is being very well looked after by her medical team, and they will continue to take an abundance of caution to keep her in the best of health.”

The Queen had previously planned to have her busiest autumn period since 2013 with seven public engagements planned for October.
