Buckingham Palace declined to comment, however a royal source said: ‘The Royal Family understands the important role investitures play in recognizing service and celebrating people’s contribution to society and there has been a real willingness to catch up with the backlog created by Covid restrictions.

The news comes after the elderly monarch was forced to step down from Commonwealth Day service today.

On Friday, Buckingham Palace, which earlier in the week had always insisted she “hoped” to be there, announced it had asked the Prince of Wales to represent her at Westminster Abbey.
