‘Business as usual!’ Queen set for her busiest autumn period in nearly a decade


THE QUEEN is set to endure her busiest autumn period in nearly a decade, with seven engagements planned in October.

Her majesty is set to return next week with seven public engagements planned for the month of October.

The Sunday Telegraph reported the Queen is looking forward to getting out and about to meet people again, after having enjoyed her public work before Balmoral in the early summer.

A royal source told the Telegraph: “The Queen had an incredibly busy May, June and July, with a real determination to get back, and this is continuing after the summer.”

“There’s a real appetite for it to be business as usual as much as possible.”

The Queen will have her busiest autumn period since 2013 with seven public engagements already planned next month.

By comparison, the Queen only had two engagements in October 2018 and the wedding ceremony of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

Once the Queen returns from Balmoral, she will attend the opening ceremony of the Sixth Session of the Scottish Parliament with the Prince of Wales.

On October 12, she will attend a Westminster Abbey service of thanksgiving to mark the centenary of the Royal British Legion.

For this event she will be joined by her daughter, the Princess Royal.

Her Majesty will also attend a reception for the COP-26 summit in Scotland.

Next year the Queen will celebrate seventy years on the throne and the country will mark the achievement with an additional bank holiday from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June 2022.
