According to a doctor, the Queen’s final photograph can reveal more about her health problems


At the age of 96, Queen Elizabeth II passed away on September 8 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. She ruled for an astounding 70 years, making her the UK’s longest-reigning queen.

According to accounts, she passed away quietly on Thursday at her Scottish estate while surrounded by her family.

The final photograph of Her Majesty was taken just two days before she passed away.


Concerns over the Queen’s health increased when a scheduled meeting of the privy council was postponed on Wednesday.

Of course, Queen Elizabeth had a number of serious health issues throughout the previous year. After Her Majesty spent the night in the hospital in October for “preliminary studies,” the trip to Northern Ireland had to be postponed. Due to a sprained back, she was forced to cancel her plans to attend the Festival of Remembrance and, subsequently, the Remembrance Sunday Cenotaph service.

Throughout the celebration of her Platinum Jubilee, which marked her 70 years in power, the Queen also skipped a number of events.

Tuesday, when she welcomed the entering Liz Truss and departing Boris Johnson to Balmoral, the Queen was pictured for the last time. During the sessions, a walking stick was observed being used by her, and The Guardian noted that she appeared “brilliant but weak.”

A doctor has since examined the images more closely and asserted that Her Majesty didn’t appear quite right in them. She appears to have put on a brave face, nevertheless, to tackle the duty—which ended up being her last.

Dr. Deb Cohen-Jones asserts that the Queen’s most recent photographs may reveal information about her condition. She’s had people say before that her hands look purple, and Cohen-Jones saw the same thing.

According to Dr. Cohen-Jones, there may be indicators of peripheral vascular disease. The blood arteries outside of your heart and brain narrow, block, or spasm due to a blood circulation disease. Heart failure can occasionally be the result of it. Organs aren’t getting a good blood supply if your peripheral circulation is that bad.

It can be a sign of multiple organ failure, the doctor continues.

But it’s crucial to keep in mind that the Queen died “peacefully” and that Buckingham Palace has not officially disclosed the cause of death.

In the last year, Her Majesty was known to have had mobility issues and was seen with a walking stick.

The Queen’s appearance, which included a slight hunch, may also be a clue that something isn’t quite right with her health, according to Dr. Cohen-Jones.
