The 95-year-old monarch — who has been sparking concerns over her health as of late — usually makes an appearance at St. George's Chapel in Windsor for the service, but will sadly be missing out on this year's event.

Her Majesty is "not expected" to join the Royal Family for the service on Sunday, April 17, an insider revealed to The Sun.

The announcement comes on the same day the Queen was supposed to appear at the chapel for the Maundy Thursday service, which she pulled out of last week.

Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, instead filled in for the Queen at the service on Thursday, April 14, marking the Prince of Wales' first time taking his mother's place at the event.

While her reasons for pulling out of this week's events have not been revealed, the Queen has already backed out of multiple appearances over recent months as she deals with ongoing health issues.

The monarch recently admitted to being "exhausted" after a stint with COVID-19 in February, as OK! previously reported.

"It does leave one very tired and exhausted doesn’t it, this horrible pandemic," she stated last week via video call while being honored by the Royal London Hospital as they opened a 155-bed COVID-19 ward named after her.

"It obviously was a very frightening experience to have COVID very badly, wasn’t it?" she commented while speaking to the hospital staff. "And of course not being allowed to see your relatives was very hard, wasn’t it?"

After recovering from her reportedly "mild" COVID-19 symptoms, the Queen quickly began dealing with yet another obstacle with her health, as it was revealed the following month that she was no longer able to walk her beloved corgis because her health was "not well enough."

It was also reported that Her Majesty was "largely confined" to using a wheelchair, but she has since been seen making her way around with a walking cane. She also purchased a luxury golf cart for $80,000 to help bring her around her sprawling estate, as OK! previously learned.

"Her Majesty is struggling with stiffness in her legs, so the cart is a perfect solution to getting her around," a source stated. "She’s been through a lot of physical battles recently with Covid and her back sprain, which would take its toll on anyone — let alone someone who turns 96 next month."

Despite her health woes, the Queen was able to make it to her late husband Prince Philip's memorial service last month, where she was escorted by her disgraced son, Prince Andrew, who brought her into the event through a side entrance to limit the amount of walking.
