THE Queen has been forced to pull out of the COP26 summit next week after being ordered to rest by doctors, it has been revealed.
But sources say, despite lighter public duties, Her Majesty is “knackered” because of a packed private schedule.
Elizabeth is said to have been keeping up “a constant flow of lunches and dinners with family and friends, because the Queen does not want to dine alone”.
In particularly she has struck up an odd friendship with her children’s former nanny, Mabel Anderson, 95, who will often sit with her during “late night TV binges”. Anderson is believed to live in a grace and favour apartment at Windsor Castle.
The 95-year-old, who lost her husband of 73 years in April, is said to be “fine” and in “good spirits” but has also given up her nightly gin and tonic on the advice of her doctors.
