"This is not good. Getting more and more concerned about the Queen’s health," he wrote to his 7.9 million followers. One replied: "Surely it's the expectation that at 96 she can keep up the same schedule she did 20 years that is the problem?" to which Piers responded: "It's the fact she can't do an increasing number of things she did every year until now that is worrying."

"I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say I sincerely wish her the very speediest of recoveries, particularly with the platinum jubilee celebrations coming up fast," Piers continued.
Piers' followers shared their thoughts on the Queen's ill health. "Unfortunately I think it's an age-related problem, therefore not one that she can recover from. Some days will be better than others, some days, less stiffness, more mobility, but others days, more difficulties," one wrote.
