Another gushed: “Aw what a lovely surprise!! It’s so good to see her again.”

Earlier this week, the Prince of Wales stood in for the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament.

A statement from Buckingham Palace had said the monarch was experiencing “episodic mobility problems”.

The statement read: “The Queen continues to experience episodic mobility problems…

“…and in consultation with her doctors has reluctantly decided that she will not attend the State Opening of Parliament.”

Of course, the news worried many royal fans as one said on Twitter: “I think we are all as concerned as each other about Her Majesty.”

Another wrote: “I’m really worried about our Queen.”
