Royal fans have grown increasingly worried about the Queen in recent months.
From losing her beloved husband Prince Philip to contracting Covid-19, our monarch has suffered through bouts of ill health in the past year.
The 95 year old is noticeably frailer and the ever-increasing drama within the Royal Family is ‘taking a toll’, according to a palace insider.
A source told People Magazine: “It’s a drip-feed of negativity for the monarchy. I’ve not known such a tumultuous time as this.”
They added: “It just feels to be one thing after another for the Queen. It’s going to take a toll.”

Meanwhile, the Royal Family drama no doubt weighs on her mind.
Prince Harry has taken action to sue Her Majesty’s Government over their ban on his paid-for security when he visits the UK.
