“At a service – you’re getting up and down – and it’s tricky. If Westminster Abbey wasn’t possible, it makes you wonder whether St Paul’s Cathedral will be possible during the main Jubilee celebrations," editor of Majesty magazine Joe Little said. “Garter, Royal Ascot, big ceremonial events that involve her normally getting in and out of carriages and getting dressed up, I just feel that’s not going to be possible in the future.

This past week, Queen Elizabeth opted out of attended the Commonwealth Day service. Instead, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Kate Middleton and Prince William were there.

Since the day is very important, the Queen sent a heartfelt note about the occasion.

"A Commonwealth Day Message from Her Majesty The Queen, Head of the Commonwealth: 'In this year of my Platinum Jubilee, it has given me pleasure to renew the promise I made in 1947, that my life will always be devoted in service. Today, it is rewarding to observe a modem, vibrant and connected Commonwealth that combines a wealth of history and tradition with the great social, cultural and technological advances of our time. That the Commonwealth stands ever taller is a credit to all who have been involved. We are nourished and sustained by our relationships and, throughout my life, I have enjoyed the privilege of hearing what the relationships built across the great reach and diversity of the Commonwealth have meant to people and communities,'" the note began.
