Since her husbands passing people have been worried about the queen.
Prince Philip was ninety-nine years old when he passed away in April.
In 1947, when Elizabeth was just 21 years old she married Phillip Mountbatten on November 20th.
So people were naturally concerned for the queen after losing a partner of more than seventy years must be horrific and a few months later she was struck with another painful blow.
The queens dogs helped her cope with the loss of Phillip…
The queen is known for being a true animal lover, with one animal, in particular, that’s always been associated with HRH.
In 1944 the queen was given her first corgi, Susan, on her eighteenth birthday.
Throughout her reign the Queen has owned more than thirty dogs all from the same family
Monty was her most famous dog of them all, he appeared in a sketch beside her for the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics…
After Vulcan, passed away last year the Queen was still left with her ‘dorgi’ Cindy so she had planned not to get any more.
A source revealed “The Queen was left with only one dog at the end of last year. She had made the decision not to get any more because she didn’t think it fair at her age.”
“But it would be unthinkable for her not to have any. It’s like the Tower of London not having any ravens. The new puppies are adorable.”
While Philip was ill in hospital she acquired 2 new four-legged friends.
Their names had truly special meanings.
Fergus was named after her uncle Fergus Bowes-Lyon, who was killed in action during the First World War.
Royal biographer Penny Junor said: “Her corgis are hugely important to her,” once the news was revealed.
“They have over the years been closer to her than any human being. The corgis are intensely loyal and loving and they have never let her down.”
However the Queen is dealing with another tragic moment.
News regarding her five-month-old puppy Fergus arrived as he sadly died.
Fergus was bought by Prince Andrew to help his mother cope with the grieving process.
Over the weekend it was confirmed that Fergus passed away.
A source revealed: ‘The Queen is absolutely devastated.
“The puppies were brought in to cheer her up during a very difficult period.”
“Everyone concerned is upset as this comes so soon after she lost her husband.”
It seems that Queen Elizabeth appears to be struggling physically as well as emotionally…

A celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the British Royal Legion.
However once she stepped out of her car, people happened to notice something concerning…
She was using a walking stick to support herself, something that she has not been spotted with for seventeen years.
In 2003 the Queen was pictured with a stick following her knee operation…
She made a prompt recovery as she stopped using it the following year.
These images have left many people concerned about her physical health…
However royal doctors have apparently given her a stern health warning.
Which left people worried once again…
Queen Elizabeth has reportedly been told to stop drinking by royal doctors.
Two sources claim that doctors have advised the queen to cut out alcohol except for special occasions
Doctors gave her the warning about alcohol to ensure she is as healthy as possible for her fall schedule.
Her Platinum Jubilee celebrations will be in June 2022.
However, things have become worse as the queen has suffered a sprained back, which has resulted in her absence from the Remembrance service in London.
The service would have been her first appearance since being admitted to hospital last month, after which she was advised by her doctors to rest for 2 weeks and only undertake “desk-based duties,” as per Buckingham Palace.
The palace released a statement ahead of the Remembrance event…
“The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.”
“Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service,” it continued.
“As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by the Prince of Wales.
“His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned.”
However, just days after her absence from the Rememberance Service, she was pictured alongside General Sir Nick Carter…
She spoke with Sir Nick as he shared his plans to step down as General before the end of the month.
While the meeting was definitely a welcomed sight for royal fans, people couldn’t help but notice something strange…
The queen’s hands…
People were quick to pointed out that the queen appeared to have “purple” hands in the photos from their meeting…
Purple hands can be a sign of poor circulation, especially when the temperature drops as we get closer to winter.
Shakespeare Medical Centre said: “It might be Raynaud’s phenomenon or just really cold hands! The purple is due to deoxygenated blood.”
Giuseppe Aragona, another doctor explained: “There could be a few different reasons for why the Queen’s hands are so purple: a lack of circulation, frail skin, exposed veins, bruising, a leakage of blood to the tissue beneath the skin causing the color.”
“It could be Cyanosis which occurs when there is not enough oxygen in the blood,” he continued.
“Blood which has a normal amount of oxygen is a deep red and means your skin is its normal color, however low oxygenated blood is bluer which causes your skin to have a purple hue.
“It is known that Cyanosis can develop quicker if the person has suffered a minor health problem, so this could be linked to her recent injury,” he concluded.
Although these recent images have caused a huge social media storm the discolouration could just be down to poor lighting…
Everyone hopes she will be feeling better soon!
