Queen, 95, so frail she can’t walk her beloved corgis any more – and hasn’t been able to for six months


THE Queen cannot walk her beloved corgis due to her frailty.

She has been unable to take them out at Windsor Castle for six months and it is feared she may never again.

It comes amid growing concern for the 95-year-old’s health after she pulled out of tomorrow’s Commonwealth Day service.

Palace staff feared how “comfortable” she would be travelling to London from Windsor then spending up to an hour at the event.

The Queen, who has owned more than 30 corgis in her lifetime, turned to her loyal dogs for solace after the death of husband Prince Philip last April.

But she has not taken them for a walk since she spent a night in hospital last October.

Days later she sprained her back and last month caught Covid.

Aides now take her two corgis and dorgi for daily walks.

A source said: “She is not well enough.

“The Queen usually turns to her beloved corgis in time of crisis and stress and took them out almost every day after Philip fell ill and then died last year.

“They are an enormous source of solace, so it is a real shame.”

She has also stopped riding horses after her health scare last year and followed doctor’s advice to give up booze.

A senior royal source said: “Dogs remain very much part of Windsor life.”

Buckingham Palace did not want to comment.
