The Queen, 95, has become too frail to walk her beloved dogs, aides say

The Queen – who has owned more than 30 corgis in her life – has not walked her dogs at Windsor Castle since last October when she was hospitalized.

Palace sources say the Queen is unable to walk her beloved dogs because of her health condition.

According to her aides, the Queen has become so weak that she cannot walk.

Queen Elizabeth II, has owned more than 30 corgis in her lifetime, but she hasn’t walked her dogs at Windsor Castle for six months.

The statements come after Buckingham Palace announced she would not be attending the Commonwealth Day service on Monday.

The palace did not give a specific reason for her expected absence from the event.

The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester have also canceled their attendance because the duke has tested positive for COVID-19.

It is thought that the Queen may never be well enough to walk with them again, Sun report.

A palace source said: “She is not well enough.

“The Queen often turns to her beloved corgis in times of crisis and stress and takes them out almost every day after Philip fell ill and then passed away last year.

“They’re a huge source of comfort, so that’s a real shame.”

The Queen has always found solace with her loyal dogs, especially after the death of her husband Prince Philip last April.

In her absence, palace aides now take her two corgis and dorgi out for daily exercise, sources claim.

A senior royal source said: “Dogs remain a very important part of Windsor’s life.”

It comes after the Queen canceled an appearance at the annual Commonwealth Day service on Monday after experiencing problems with her mobility.

The 95-year-old monarch is understood to be increasingly uncomfortable with preparations.

The Queen will instead be represented by the Prince of Wales, Buckingham Palace said.

The head of state, who recently recovered from covid, is hoping to join Prince Charles, Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the Commonwealth event.

The decision is not related to any illness but to the Queen’s comfort in entering and leaving the service.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Queen has asked the Prince of Wales to represent the Queen at the Commonwealth service at Westminster Abbey.”

The service will be the Queen’s first public appearance since reaching the Platinum Year milestone and the first Commonwealth Day service to be held in full since 2020.

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said she believes the Queen will be “determined” to perform a Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey dedicated to her late husband Prince Philip on March 29.

Ms Seward said: “It would be a pain to miss out on Commonwealth Day service but these days she is faced with a dilemma as she has to choose her activities. Wisely.

“She will be very determined to do the Duke of Edinburgh’s thanksgiving later this month, which will mean so much to her that his funeral has been scaled down like that.

“Your Majesty, I believe, is very much like her mother, who was reluctant to use a wheelchair, so during her promotion years it was about preparing herself as much as possible for the big occasions. .”

The Queen tested positive for Covid on 20 February and Buckingham Palace said at the time she was experiencing “mild cold-like symptoms”.

Last month, she admitted her frailty for the first time during her royal engagement at Windsor Castle.

The Queen told visiting military officials: “As you can see, I cannot move.”

The last time she saw a group of people in public was on February 5.
