Prince Charles returns to royal front line as he steps in for Queen after health fears | Royal | News
Every summer sees the Queen host a number of garden parties at Buckingham Palace, as well as one at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. It was announced previously that while the parties would be going ahead, the Queen would not be attending.
Her Majesty has faced mobility issues that also led to her having to pull out of attending several Platinum Jubilee events. At her annual garden parties, the Queen is usually required to stand and walk for over an hour as she greets guests and it’s believed that the 96-year-old would currently struggle to do this.
