The Queen has been struggling with her health for almost a year now.

The Queen's health seen as a private matter

Since last autumn she’s had to pull out of a series of public events because of what seemed to be persistent problems with her mobility, often handing over duties to Prince Charles.

Remembrance Sunday, the Maundy Thursday service, the annual Commonwealth Service and the State Opening of Parliament have been among the events where health issues stopped the Queen from taking part over the past 12 months.

She rallied for her appearances on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Platinum Jubilee and only this week carried out her audience with the new prime minister.

Beyond many references to her mobility problems, Buckingham Palace officials have given little detail about changes in the Queen’s health, seeing it as a private matter.
