Piers Morgan is worried about Queen’s health with each passing day.
Tuesday marked the third time the 96-year-old has opted out of the State Opening of Parliament in 70 years and royal experts believe it is time she passed the Crown on to her son Charles.
Sharing a tweet from Chris Ship, Piers said Queen’s absence doesn’t bode well for the monarchy.
Ship’s comments read: “The Queen continues to experience episodic mobility problems and, in consultation with her doctors, has reluctantly decided that she will not attend the State Opening of Parliament.
“At Her Majesty’s request, and with the agreement of the relevant authorities, the Prince of Wales will read the Queen’s speech on Her Majesty’s behalf, with the Duke of Cambridge in attendance.
“The Queen has issued new Letters Patent to delegate to the Councilors of State the Royal function of State Opening of Parliament.
“It means that this year, for the first time, Prince Charles and Prince William (as Councilors of State) will open this session of Parliament.”
Captioning his retweet, Piers wrote: “This is not good. Increasingly concerned about the Queen’s health.”
Meanwhile, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “Today is obviously very significant for Charles, but it can also be seen as part of the Queen’s gradual assumption of duties, such as laying the crown at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday”. that was happening gradually anyway.”
