THE QUEEN has ‘ruled out using a wheelchair’ as she ‘still hopes’ to attend Prince Phillip’s memorial.
The memorial service will take place at the abbey on March 29.
It comes after Buckingham Palace announced she was not fit enough to attend today’s Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey.
Palace staff feared how “comfortable” she would be travelling to London from Windsor then spending up to an hour at the event.
The Queen has also not been able to 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.
