According to ITV’s royal editor, the Queen pulled out ahead of the big day so as not to overshadow the event.

Fans rushed to speculate about what the latest news about the Queen could mean for the monarchy.

“I can see the Queen abdicating after the celebrations later in the year,” commented one fan. “I think the last time we will see her publicly is at Prince Charles’ Coronation at the end of the year start of 2023.”

Another said: “Will the Queen will abdicate later this year once all the festivities are over?”

As a result, alterations have reportedly been made to the home to accommodate the Queens’ mobility issues.

“The monarchy is changing before our very eyes and arguably that’s no bad thing,” said royal expert Camilla Tominey.

“What we think is the Queen isn’t having health problems but mobility problems. She can’t stand for long periods or walk for long distances. Therefore accommodations are being made.”

Meanwhile, the latest on the Queen comes as it was claimed she had prepared herself to deal with Philip’s passing.

“She relied on him a lot,” said Robert Hardman, author of Queen of our Times. “But he was getting old and weak and she knew that. She was prepared, and had the wherewithal to deal with his death.”
