Her majesty is taking “protective” measures to keep herself “healthy” for the Platinum Jubilee next year by strictly following the government guidelines. The event is expected to witness various activities including horse racing at Epsom Downs, Thanksgiving service at St.Paul’s Cathedral, The Big Jubilee Lunch across the city for the people to enjoy street food and friendship.

Angela Levin, a royal commentator on Sky News said: “Two other things that are very important here, one is she is still alive, and healthy-ish by the time its the Platinum Jubilee nexts spring.

“This is an astonishing event, she is going to be the royal who is actually been on the throne for longer than anyone else. It’s a full show of love, watching horses race, going to church and sing hymns, having loads of people eating in the streets, enjoying the feeling of what a wonderful number of citizens she has.

“So I think she wants to keep herself safe for that.”

The Buckingham Palace has announced a four-day long weekend next year from June 2 to 5 to commemorate the Queen 75years of reign.

The royal historian Hugo Vickers who has helped the Monarch in Silver and Golden Jubilee celebration, and is equally involved in Platinum Jubilee event preparation advised the Queen to make her health as a priority for next year.

Mr Vickers said: “She’s going to be 96, so you have to be very careful not to exhaust her.”

“Years ago, in 1977 I wrote a little book. It’s called ‘We Want the Queen’.

“It’s all about the celebrations that took place in 1977 in London.

“Sir Martin Charteris, her private secretary, wrote to the organisers and said ‘I accept the following engagements for the Queen.

“‘If I turn down a few it is with one view in mind, that she should remain hale and hearty in order, in the fullness of time, to celebrate her Golden Jubilee’.

“[Her Golden Jubilee] was in 2002 and we’re 20 years on from that. He also said to the organisers, when they were putting together their plans, that he had two bits of advice.

“One was ‘you must not bore the public’ and two, ‘you must not kill the Queen’, in other words you’ve got to make it fun for everybody and you mustn’t exhaust her.”

He further added: “Next year people will have to come to her. In the early Jubilees she would go on fantastic tours of the Commonwealth, she would go to Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other places.

“Now, obviously, she won’t do that, they are going to have that long weekend.

“Windsor has also galvanised itself, they’ve got lots of good plans there too. I’m on a committee for that.

“I said to them, the thing I do know about Jubilees is that they don’t just happen automatically, you have to inspire things to happen, you have to get things in place, you’ve got to give people the opportunity to celebrate and then come along and have a good time.”
