The Queen of England has been working tirelessly over the years and has now been able to rest for the first time in forever. Lockdown made it possible for the monarch to take a breather since her reign of 68 years.

Queen Elizabeth has the slightest rest she has had in her whole life during the lockdown. After decades of royal duty, Her Majesty’s schedule has slowed down amid the lockdown.

An insider revealed to People that the pandemic provided an unexpected reprieve for the 94-year-old royal matriarch. "In her twilight years, I’m sure it is quite lovely not to have the pressure of a full calendar of public events, said the insider.

According to the source, this is the only chance that the Queen has had the time to rest in her whole life. The source added that the monarch is in good health.

Queen Elizabeth had been isolating at Windsor Castle for the past year, joined by her husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh who retired from royal duties in 2017.

The change in the Queen's schedule will surely be advantageous for them to spend more quality time. Prince Philip resides in Wood Farm near Sandringham while the Queen continues to work primarily from London.

Thankfully now that Her Majesty is working less, they usually have dinner each night. Although the Queen has stepped away from public appearances, she continues with her royal duties.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were among the 1.5 million people in the United Kingdom to have received the vaccine's first dose so far. People over the age of 80 are among the high-priority to get the vaccine.

Last year, she spent seven months without making public appearances outside of a royal residence. During that period, her firstborn child Prince Charles had tested positive for COVID-19 and reportedly her grandson Prince William although it was not confirmed.

The monarch’s last public appearance was at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March. While in isolation, the Queen gets to do some of her favorite activities, including riding ponies.

The British royal member owns stable Fell ponies, which are a distinct English breed. Last year in May, she was spotted riding one of her ponies named Fern at Windsor Home Park.

When she is not spending time with her beloved animals, the Queen also has a humorous bone and makes it worthwhile to have fun with her family. A source revealed that she is “much livelier in private than what the public sees.”

Despite her serious facial expressions and portraits, behind the palace wall, she is quite the opposite. A royal biographer quoted a source at the Queen's estate who once said, “‘you can hear her laughing throughout that big house. She has a big laugh.’”
