Queen Elizabeth II news: Body language hints Queen is ‘slipping away from royal duties’

While the Queen’s latest appearance was different from any previous Trooping the Colour, one royal expert has claimed it signifies a hesitant move towards “the new normal” for the monarchy.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams praised the event as “colourful and imaginative” and took it to be a sign the Queen will not retire from royal life.

Mr Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “It was colourful and imaginative and handled with precision. We excel at ceremonial and the world admires us for it.

“What was striking was that, in accordance with government advice, the guardsmen self-distanced during the ceremony which made it a challenge to perform.”
