Queen Elizabeth news: Her Maj CANCELS historic event due to mobility issues as she prepares for historic FIRST next week | The Sun

THE QUEEN has pulled out of an important historical event for the first time in her 70 year long reign, calling Prince Charles to take over.

This year her Majesty the Queen will not be attending Scotland's Braemar Gathering, an important tradition part of the Highland Games.

Prince Charles will be taking over for the Queen, after she pulled out over mobility concerns.

The monarch had previously announced that she will not be leaving Balmoral to say goodbye to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Instead, on 5 September, her Majesty will appoint the new Prime Minister from the comfort of her own Balmoral home.

It has been reported that Queen Elizabeth is "resting" a lot more following a "change" in her mobility.

A source told the Daily Mail that the Queen’s mobility "condition" is not "ideal," but she is doing well considering her Majesty is "96 after all."

    Fatal detail that could have saved Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed's lives

    The Princess and her passengers died in a horror car accident, 25 years ago this week in Paris.

    Princess Diana didn't wear her seatbelt, and neither did the other passengers when they crashed in the Paris tunnel.

    This cost them their lives.

    Dr Richard Shepherd said in his 2019 book, Unnatural Causes, that her death was a "classic example" of an "if only" case.

    He wrote: "Had she been restrained, she would probably have appeared in public two days later with a black eye, perhaps a bit breathless from the fractured ribs and with a broken arm in a sling."

    A royal correspondent reported that Kate was bullied at Downe House school, in Berkshire.

    Katie Nicholl told the Express: "Being especially slender and a head taller than her peers, she stood out for the wrong reasons and was teased for being gangly and lanky."

    "It was a very cliquey school and there was a lot of pressure.

    "The girls were all high achievers and there were lots of girls with eating disorders."

    Lambrook School in Berkshire, has a strict anti-bullying policy, and takes it very seriously.

    Meghan slammed for releasing bombshell podcast on the 25th anniversary of Diana's death

    Speaking on The Morning Show, Peter Ford criticised Meghan Markle's decision to release the second episode of her podcast, Archetypes, on the 25th anniversary of Lady Diana Spencer's death.

    "This anniversary wasn't exactly a surprise; we knew it was coming," the journalist pointed out.

    "So why would you schedule that interview for yesterday? Why not put the podcast off for a week. You know, get out of the news cycle."

    Taking to Twitter, Ford added: "On the actual 25th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, guess who inserts herself into the news cycle?

    "[She could have done] a podcast that drops today that talks about Diana's legacy and causes she supported. Would actually get massive coverage had she done it.

    "Or alternately she has the sway to tell Spotify to not release it for 24 hours. Surely this must cross Prince Harry's mind?"

    Kelly Brook to appear in season six of The Crown

    Brook is set to appear in the latest season of the hit show, but with a cheeky twist.

    The producers at The Crown reached out to request permission to use a sexy pin-up snap from the Nineties.

    On Heart Breakfast with Jason King, Kelly showed the 90s pin-up which was taken in 1999.

    She began: "I got an email from my agent… and she said "We had a picture clearance request for one of your images to be used on The Crown Season six."

    Jason responded: "Hang on a second… I don't… no, I can’t see that. No, no no, you’re like my sister! Put it away! Put it away will you! No no no!

    "Am I right in thinking, if this is The Crown, they must be heading towards the Nineties?"

    Kelly excitingly revealed: "That’s definitely got to be a teenage boy’s bedroom hasn't it!

    "Can I be, can I be on the wall of Prince Harry, or Prince William’s bedroom at Buckingham Palace or wherever it is they grew up? Could that be.

    "Was I a pin-up for them, back in the day, back in the Nineties? Oh wow this is incredible. Well I've said yes of course."

    King Edward VIII’s German allies explained by historian

    The Queen’s late uncle was King for a very short period of time before abdicating to marry his American socialite lover.

    A historical journalist claims that Edward VIII “turned the other cheek” to Nazi activity, and openly sided with Germany amid the Second World War.

    In 1937, he went on a tour of Nazi Germany, and the Union Jack flag was flown alongside the Nazi flag.

    Himself and his wife Wallis Simpson were even hosted by Adolf Hitler in Bavaria.

    Historian Andrew Lownie, told Vanity Fair this summer: “I think he knew perfectly well. When he did his tour [of Germany] in October 1937, he saw a concentration camp. He inspected the SS. 

    “He read the papers, so he must have seen even before the war there were all sorts of terrible things going on. 

    “I don’t think he could have had any misconception about what the Nazis were about.”
