The 91-year-old queen visited hospitals yesterday to try to cheer up injured survivors of the Manchester bombing. She is universally admired and respected for the way she's conducted herself all her life, including 65+ years as queen. Various royal scandals and silliness over the decades have never touched her. Could a time come when she says "I'm goin' to the beach. Ta-ta?" I realize she could abdicate the throne, something Prince Charles has probably been urging to do since he was about 30. But could she withdraw from public life without abdicating? Would the public accept a queen who only made a handful of public appearances a year? She's entitled to a break without having to give up everything.
