The source told The Sun. earlier this week that “the cart is perfect” for Queen Elizabeth, who they said has “battled stiffness in her legs recently.”

“She’s been through a lot of physical Battles recently with Covid and her back sprain, which would take its toll on anyone – let alone someone who turns 96 next month,” the source said, later adding that everyone believes the cart is “a great idea.”

“It’s certainly fit for a Queen and hopefully it will help her fulfill her engagements,” the Insider added. “Everyone wants her to carry on for as long as possible being seen by the public.”

Queen Elizabeth has experienced some mobility issues in recent weeks, including at Tuesday’s memorial service at Westminster Abbey in Honor of her later husband Prince Philip, who died last April at the age of 99.

Her Majesty arrived at the event on the arm of her son Prince Andrew, which royal commentator Robert Jobson said “she insisted” upon.

The Queen, who will celebrate her 96th birthday in April, appeared to have difficulty moving around during a February appearance at Windsor Castle. During the in-person meeting, she quipped to her guests while gesturing down at her cane, “Well, as you can see, I can’t move!”

In October 2021, Queen Elizabeth also used a walking stick for a Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey. It was the first time she used a cane publicly since 2003 after she underwent knee surgery.
