Royal fans ‘worried for Queen’s health’ after sniffling in Parliament speech

Royal fans were happy to see the Queen completing her royal duties today (May 11), but were left worried for her health after the appearance.

Her Majesty attended the House of Lords to lead the State Opening for its next session on Tuesday.

But after she spoke, royal fans online were concerned as she paused a few times to sniff.

Some believe she may be under the weather due to the sniffles.

Commentator Darren Grimes tweeted: "Does HM The Queen have a cold?"

One user responded: "Sniffling a lot," and another added: "Sounds like it. Back to normality then!"

A third said: "Bless her she does sound down."

The Queen, who may be under the weather, was praised for her strong "work ethic" by Irvine Porter.

She went on to say: "That’s one of the things I respect about her, the number of people now who have a slight cold and have a week off."

Another, referencing her Philip's recent death, suggested: "She’s slightly diminished by grief, she’s nursing a broken heart."

And someone else tweeted: "Think she’s tired which you would be too if you’d been through what she has at her age!"

The monarch, who went for day attire over ceremonial robes, chose pastel lilac and a floral dress during her first public duty outside royal grounds since Philip's death.

She appeared with Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall and the Nearest Guard – a special level of private guards who Henry VIII brought in as part of the Troop of Gentlemen during the 1500s.

The Queen's Speech was slightly different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Lords, Charles, and Camilla Parker-Bowles wearing face masks.

The Queen was escorted to the royal throne by son and future King Prince Charles.

Her Majesty has got back into the swing of royal duties and was recently seen holding a virtual call with the Royal Life Saving Society who told her she was the first person to receive a lifesaving swimming badge at the age of 14.

She officially returned to work on April 22, the day after her 95th birthday, and less than a week after the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral.

Philip, aged 99, passed away in his sleep on April 9, and royal fans and family members across the world mourned the loss.

Millions tuned into watch his funeral at St George's Chapel on April 17, where Her Majesty sat alone to follow Covid restrictions.
