However, she did 'experience some discomfort,' due to which she will be pulling out of Friday's national thanksgiving service.

"Taking into account the journey and activity required to participate in tomorrow's National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral, Her Majesty, with great reluctance, has concluded that she will not attend," the statement read.

It is also believed that the Queen experienced "episodic mobility issues," according to a royal source, although she did attend the beacon lighting event on Thursday evening.
