• Royal biographer Robert Jobson stated on Twitter that the Queen might skip Prince Philip's memorial service later this month
  • Penny Junor said the Queen is already 95 and not superhuman, so engagements that require walking might not be feasible anymore
  • Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen would skip the Commonwealth service but not her other in-person engagements

Queen Elizabeth II's sparked fear that she might miss Prince Philip's memorial service after canceling her attendance at a major event this week.

Her Majesty, 95, announced Friday that she would miss the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey on Monday. Prince Charles will represent the Queen at the event. Due to the Queen's decision to cancel her events, some were worried that she might also miss the upcoming memorial for the late Duke of Edinburgh on March 29.

"Now Queen could miss Prince Philip's memorial service: Her Majesty, 95, is struggling with mobility but rules out using a wheelchair despite pulling out of Commonwealth Service," royal biographer Robert Jobson, author of "Prince Philip's Century," tweeted, citing a report from Daily Mail.

In the report, Kate Mansey, assistant editor for the Mail on Sunday, claimed fears were growing among courtiers that the monarch might pull out of the thanksgiving service for Prince Philip at the end of the month. The concern was due to the recent announcement of Buckingham Palace, saying she wasn't fit to attend the Commonwealth Service.

However, the Queen reportedly "still hopes" to attend the service. The thanksgiving service for Prince Philip would provide an opportunity for more friends and dignitaries to mark his lifetime of service. It has been cut down to briefly 50 minutes, and a side door may be deployed to save the Queen from long walks. However, it might still be too much for the Queen.

"The Queen is extraordinary. She has gone on with great vigor for years, but we have to remember she is 95 and not superhuman," said royal biographer Penny Junor, author of "All the Queen's Corgis," as per Daily Mail. "In other respects, she is in great form. The Queen is fantastic on Zoom calls, but I think events where she is required to walk or go up any steps are not going to be feasible anymore."

There is still a chance that the Queen will make an appearance at her late husband's memorial service because Buckingham Palace said in a statement obtained by People that "the Queen will continue with other planned engagements, including in-person audiences, in the week ahead."

The news about the Queen probably skipping Prince Philip's funeral came after Prince Harry's rep confirmed that the Duke of Sussex would not travel for his grandfather's service. Prince Harry's rep added that he hoped to visit his grandmother as soon as possible, People reported.
