Frail Queen travels to Norfolk to recover after busy week in Scotland


The 96-year-old monarch arrived in Edinburgh on Monday, spending five days there to celebrate Royal Week. She has carried out three major public appearances as part of the celebration and met with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. On the first day of Royal week, the Queen attended the Ceremony of the Keys, where she was symbolically handed the keys to Scotland’s capital, before returning them to elected officials.

On Tuesday, she watched a military parade in the gardens of Holyroodhouse Palace.

And on Thursday, the 96-year-old monarch attended the Reddendo Parade alongside Prince Charles.

Concerns were raised over the Queen’s health after she was pictured with purple-coloured hands at her meeting with Ms Sturgeon.

The Queen has had a number of health issues in recent months, the main issue being her “episodic mobility problems”.

The issues have meant she has been unable to attend many public engagements.

She missed the State Opening of Parliament in early May and missed the Easter Sunday Service at St George’s Chapel the month before.

More recently, she chose to take a backseat during June’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

She has also been pictured using a walking stick at most events in recent months.
