Royal expert Jennie Bond has told the BBC that plans around the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee are being closely examined in the wake of the Monarch’s recent health concerns. Queen Elizabeth was unable to attend Sunday’s annual Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph after suffering a back sprain. Last month the 95-year-old Queen spent a night in the hospital and was ordered to rest by medical staff. 

Ms Bond told BBC Breakfast: “I think yes, everyone at the palace now will be very carefully calculating probably recalculate exactly what can be done the Platinum Jubilee.

“The priority has got to be obviously the Queen’s health and the Queen’s safety.

“I think what we’re seeing now is a gradual transition of responsibility from the Queen to Prince Charles, Prince William, and other senior members of the royal family.

“They are taking on more responsibilities and therefore will be at the forefront of celebrations and the Queen will pop up here and there.”
