After decades of royal duty, Queen Elizabeth’s schedule has slowed amid lockdowns.
The coronavirus pandemic has provided an unexpected reprieve for the 94-year-old monarch, an insider tells PEOPLE in one of this week’s cover stories.
“In her twilight years, I’m sure it is quite lovely not to have the pressure” of a full calendar of public events, says the insider.
“It is possible this is the only slight rest she’s ever had in her whole life,” adds a source close to the Queen. “She is well. She’s in good fettle.”
Queen Elizabeth has spent most of past year isolating at Windsor Castle with her husband, Prince Philip, 99.

As they isolate, the couple have dinner together each night. KEEP READING
