Queen Elizabeth ‘Will Never Abdicate, Full-Stop’ – She Made A Commitment To God And Country, Source Says
Queen Elizabeth "will never abdicate" despite turning 95 because "she made that commitment in front of God," source says.
Queen Elizabeth II, whose 95th birthday is on April 21, 2021, has many royal watchers wondering if she has plans to abdicate her throne given her advanced age and immense grief over the recent death of her husband Prince Philip. Now, however, one source has come forward to say definitively that the Queen “will never abdicate”.
The Queen is a woman of faith. Her public prayer requests to her subjects and others is a way for Queen Elizabeth to ground and demonstrate her personal faith. It also binds the Queen to her people and her duty.
Queen Elizabeth spoke these words on her coronation day in 1953, “The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me God.”
In 1953, in the silence of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey, Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh, knelt at the feet of his 27-year-old wife and Queen, and swore an oath of allegiance. An oath he kept for the next 68 years. #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/Ok2ZJY2uFA

‘The Queen Will Never Abdicate, Full-Stop’
“The queen will never abdicate, full-stop,” True Royalty TV co-founder Nick Bullen told Fox News. “She made a commitment not just to this country, to the Commonwealth and her family, but also to God. Faith is very important to her. And when she became queen, she made that commitment in front of God as well. So she will do this job until she is no longer able to do this job.”
While the Queen won’t be abdicating given her lifelong commitment to public service, Bullen acknowledged that she has handed over many of her official duties to young members of the royal family.

“I think we can expect to see more of that,” he predicted. “If you see now, she doesn’t take on foreign trips. So the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall take on more of the foreign trips, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. And with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex living in California, we can expect to see Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex taking on more royal duties.”
“The queen is progressively slowing down, but she’s definitely not stepping back,” Bullen continued.
Queen Elizabeth Will Get Through This Tough Time
While this is a difficult time for the Queen, Bullen has no doubt that she will get through it.
“Her simple sense of duty has kept her going during good times and bad,” he explained. “She dedicated her life to duty and she’s honored that promise all these years. I can’t think of anybody else who has delivered that level of service. I recently did a program with some of her closest friends and they’ve all said the same thing – her sense of duty and service is unparalleled.”
“Throughout her entire reign, the queen has put others and her country before herself,” Bullen continued. “I’m not sure many of us can really admit that we put others first. We might like to think we do. We might certainly do it occasionally, but I would say for the whole of the queen’s reign, she’s put others before herself. And I think that’s a phenomenal tribute to an incredible woman.”
Today will be difficult for Her Majesty as she’s “celebrating” her birthday for the 1st time in 70+ years without her “strength and stay” by her side.
But today still marks 95 years of an incredible life, long May she reign ❤️#QueenElizabeth pic.twitter.com/qEBAGQR8vd
