Queen gives key duty to her favourite Sophie Wessex as she continues rest period

Sophie,  The Countess of Wessex, has  reportedly been given a key duty by Queen Elizabeth amid health crisis.

The Court Circular - which lists every official event carried out by working royals - stated on Monday the monarch had delegated a key engagement to her youngest daughter-in-law, who is also considered as one of the Queen's favourites.

"The Queen was represented by The Countess of Wessex at the Funeral of the Lady Maclean which was held in the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey, this afternoon," an entry dated November 22 read.

The latest development comes amid Queen's health worries as she continues a period of rest on the advise of her medical team. 

The Queen  has missed numerous  engagements this month, including the  reception at COP26, the Festival of Remembrance and the opening session of the General Synod.

Buckingham Palace had announced the Queen would interrupt her period of rest at the palace to attend in person the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in London on November 14. However, hours before she was due to appear on one of the balconies of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the palace announced the sovereign could no longer attend.
