Britain’s Queen Elizabeth’s health has been on the decline in the past few months, with reports of the monarch struggling with mobility. However, according to a Daily Mail report, she has ruled out the use of a wheelchair.

According to the publication, the 95-year-old monarch will be continuing with planned engagements in the coming week despite her deteriorating health, with royal biographer Penny Junor saying that she has refused to use a wheelchair.

“The Queen is extraordinary. She has gone on with great vigour for years but we have to remember she is 95 and not superhuman,” said Junor.

She went on to add: “In other respects, she is on great form. The Queen is fantastic on Zoom calls, but I think events where she is required to walk or go up any steps are not going to be feasible anymore.”

Junor explained that despite her health, the Queen will not be disappearing from view, thanks to the Palace’s access to technology to help her, which is a welcome news to royal fans.

The comments come after the Queen pulled out of the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey. She had also tested positive for COVID-19 last month.
