The Queen has been praised for her efforts not to appear "feeble" after her surprise appearance at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show last Monday, despite fears surrounding her ongoing mobility issues.Her Majesty was driven around the show, of which she is a patron and a regular attendee having visited the event more than 50 times in her 70-year reign, in a stylish white buggy with a formal chauffeur.Royal biographer Angela Levin suggested the Queen had chosen this form of mobility assistance as she has been forced to miss a number of royal events before the Platinum Jubilee due to health concerns.Speaking to Sky News, Ms Levin said: “She looks great even from a distance.

I understand she didn’t want to look feeble. She didn’t want to come with crutches or being pushed in a wheelchair.”The royal author suggested the Queen had purposefully avoided other forms of mobility assistance in an effort to waive rumours of her deteriorating health.Discussing the buggy, Ms Levin added: “This is super trendy and it should be because it cost £62,000 – nonetheless, it’s come out of her own pocket.”Ms Levin celebrated the Queen’s chosen method of transport as the buggy allowed her to enjoy the royal event from the comfort of a luxury seat.

She continued: “I think she enjoyed it, it was sort of a challenge and it was lovely.“To have a chauffeur driving it, it’s sort of humorous.
