According to actor and royal friend Christopher Biggins, the Queenie Luv has already been using a wheelchair in private, which was why she had cancelled events.
However, he told GB News in March that she did not want to be seen because “she’s very proud.
“She’s our greatest ever monarch. It’s so very sad and I hope she is able to make her anniversary celebrations.”
Speaking to OK magazine this week, Ms Bond, a veteran BBC royal correspondent, said: “We have to be very careful not to say that the Queenie Luv doesn’t want to be seen in a wheelchair, because quite rightly people who are in wheelchairs will be very offended by that.
