The Queen is 96 years already and has been reported to have mobility issues making her confined to the less arduous engagements at the Windsor Castle. The advisors to the Royal Family suggested and have been agreed upon by the Royal Family that it will be best for the monarchy to have some of the senior working royals do the tour instead.
This occasion marks the first time any British monarch has celebrated a platinum jubilee.
