Christopher Biggins, 73, claimed that the Queen is using a wheelchair, something he has labelled “so very sad”. The actor has spoken out as speculation regarding Her Majesty’s health soared in recent months.
The Queen is due to celebrate 70 years of royal service with events being held from June 2.
Appearing on the GB News breakfast show with Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster today, Christopher praised the Queen as “our greatest ever monarch”.
He said: “I have heard that the reason she’s not doing a lot of the events that she should be doing and cancelling them is because she is in a wheelchair.
“She doesn’t want to be seen, she’s very proud. She’s our greatest ever monarch.
Daily Mail royal editor Rebecca English has since told Palace Confidential on Mail Plus that there is currently speculation surrounding Her Majesty’s appearance at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
According to the publication, the monarch will not be taking part in all the events taking part during the bank holiday.
Rebecca said: “The conversations they’re having now around the Queen and the Jubilee are very different to the conversations they were having a year ago.
“A year ago they expected her to be front and centre at everything, attending every event and that definitely is no longer the case.
