Prince Charles called to take more duties as Queen's hands 'turn purple'

Prince Charles has been urged to take on more royal work in a bid to give the Queen room to rest.

The monarch had sparked concern after she was admitted to the hospital, for the first time in eight years, and suddenly pulled out of Remembrance Sunday due to a sprained back.

In addition, concerns deepened when photos of the Queen emerged where her hands looked distinctly purple.

A medical expert told Metro that the pigmentation could be from the cold or Raynaud’s phenomenon.

The medical expert said that "lack of circulation, frail skin, exposed veins, bruising, [and] a leakage of blood to the tissue beneath the skin" can result in hands turning purple. 

As a result many have called for the Queen to hand over her duties to her son so that she can rest.
