And the monarch is “eager” to resume full-time duties as soon as the coronavirus has been defeated, it has been said. Senior aides revealed yesterday that Her Majesty has no plans to retire, despite speculation that she may step aside and allow Prince Charles to take over after his 95th birthday in April. It comes as ministers announced the first of what is expected to be many plans to mark his 70 years on the throne in 2022.

A four-day bank holiday weekend is one of the proposals.A senior adviser stressed that the Queen is sticking to the pledge she made on her 21st birthday to serve the Commonwealth until the day of her death.

She said on a broadcast in 1947: “I declare to all of you that my whole life, whether long or short, will be devoted to your service and to the service of our great Imperial family to which we all belong.

The counselor said, “We have always pointed out to people the statement she made to serve the country all of her life.”

Another aide said: “There are no plans for a regency. There is no discussion to my knowledge concerning a regency. How she asks other family members to support her in her work is entirely up to the Queen.

Courtiers hope a vaccine against Covid-19 will allow the Queen to return to normal duties next year.

One aide said: “She wants to get back to normal.”

His engagements are generally planned six months in advance and some even more in advance.

Its program is already being worked out for next year in hopes of a vaccine and an end to restrictions.

A source said: “There are things in the newspaper that we discuss. Whether or not they happen, we still don’t know at this point. The 94-year-old monarch has been embarrassed since March by the coronavirus, forcing most of his royal duties to be removed.

But she has undertaken a small number of face-to-face engagements.

In June, she attended a parade at Windsor Castle to mark her official birthday.

The following month, she knighted Captain Tom Moore, the 100-year veteran who raised £ 33million for NHS charities.

Last month, she made her first public engagement outside a royal residence in seven months when she traveled to Porton Down, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, to meet scientists from the Science Laboratory and defense technologies.

Then last week, she attended a service organized for her at Westminster Abbey to mark the centenary of the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.

But even though she has no plans to retire, her schedule is now appropriate for her age.

She will likely continue to reduce her workload and give more responsibility to Prince Charles and other family members over the next few years.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be celebrated with events featuring “cutting-edge art and technology exhibits” over a four-day holiday weekend from June 2-5, 2022, giving everyone an additional holiday that year. It is expected that there will be street parties all over the country.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said trees will be planted in various places across the country to mark the jubilee.

People who work in public services, including the armed forces, emergency services and prison staff, will receive a jubilee medal.

MPs and members of the House of Lords will also have a whip-round to pay for a gift for the Queen. A multi-party board of directors will decide on the chosen gift, with the money coming from personal donations.
