Queen Elizabeth II will drop out the annual pre-Easter traditions, Royal Maundy Services, at St. George Chapel in Windsor Castle on April 14, People Magazine reported on Friday.
For the first time, the Duchess of Cornwall will take the Queen’s place at the services, while the heir of the British throne, Prince Charles will disturb the coins.
The 95-year-old monarch is currently handling light desk duties, and virtual appearances from Windsor Castle.
The event was a celebration of the late Duke of Edinberg’s life achievements as the Queen’s consort. He was described as a “remarkable man” committed to “down-to-earth” causes.
