I don't think there is anything to worry about. HM is in good shape for a woman of her age. I think part of the reason the Queen has approved of Prince Charles's marriage to Mrs. Parker-Bowles though is the fact she knows that she is in the "sun set" of her reign. She is nearly 80 and I think she figures that even if she lives as long as her mother, she'll reign for another 20 years. By allowing Charles to marry while she is still in good health, the public will have time get "comfortable" to Prince Charles being married to Camilla. That way by the time he becomes King, everyone will be used to he and Camilla being a married couple.

The Queen has cut down on her duties, as mentioned above, but she has been cutting down on her duties slightly since the end of her Golden Jubilee in 2002. She has a number of engagments set for the summer. She'll be in Canada for over a week this coming May for example.

I agree with HMQueenElizabethII

HM Queen still in good shape but she never let down! because she nearly 80 years old her mother the Queen Mother still strong health for long times for more years! but she never let down! if HM Queen 2 would let down im not sure when!

I compared this period with the same on last year on the official site:

from 19 February to 31 March 2004: 17 engagements (according to the list published on 18 February 2004)

from 16 February to 31 March 2005: 16 engagements (according to the list published on 16 February 2005)

New engagements are added to list weekly, so (I checked all the lists until the end of March 2004) engagements were 20 between 19 February and 31 March 2004.

I am not so sure that she has reduced her engagements recently. In 1999 I printed the biographies from the site: the Queen undertook 343 engagements in 1997.
She undertook 436 in 2004 (UK and oversea). Probably the 343 engagements of 1997 are UK only, therefore the total must be about the same in 1997 and 2004.

I agree. Her health is extremely good for a lady of nearly 79 years.
