The Queen could make a limited number of appearances at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations this summer, an expert claims

The Queen could be set to limit her Platinum Jubilee appearances to just a handful of events after admitting her bout with Covid has left her feeling “exhausted”, according to a royal expert.

The monarch had already faced months of mobility issues that saw her pull out of high-profile public events before Buckingham Palace revealed she contracted coronavirus in February.

On Sunday Her Majesty spoke about her condition during a video call with the Royal London Hospital to mark the official opening of its Queen Elizabeth Unit.

Talking to former Covid patient Asef Hussain and his wife Shamina, the Queen said: “It does leave one very tired and exhausted, doesn’t it?

“This horrible pandemic. It’s not a nice result.”

This has led to increased that her Jubilee appearances will be significantly scaled back this summer, with royal biographer Angela Levin telling the MailOnline she believes the Queen will limit her activity.

She said: “It’s going to be very difficult and I think they will only show her in a few instances, maybe at the service at St Paul’s. That will be very important to her because she is a Christian.

“I don’t think we’ll see her around and about. Maybe she’ll be well enough to sit and watch horses. It won’t be her, everywhere. But if she is there, she will appreciate the fact the public will be wanting to be there and supporting her.

“I imagine that the aides are worried that if the public don’t see her, people may think that if she’s not there it’s not worth us going.

“I’m sure everyone in the Palace hopes that people will turn up to show their respects and say thank you for an extraordinary reign both in length and in breadth.”

The Palace has been approached for comment.

The Queen, who had “mild cold-like” Covid symptoms, has recently been suffering from mobility issues, forcing her to cancel a number of publics.
