Two schools of thoughts regarding HM, Her mobility is obviously an issue and the thinking is those around her think that if the people see her in a wheelchair/mobility scooter it will look "Bad" Others say if she has to use one it will help end the stigma of having to use one and maybe highlight how difficult it is to use one.
I would not mind at all if Her Majesty used a wheelchair or mobility scooter in public but I think the decision should be hers.

Tedburn or Stroud?
Stroud for Tartex canapes, Rooibos and Ludwig Van Beethoven

Tedburn for local game, fine red wine and the Stranglers

Variety be are the spice of life.

I think The Queen scooting about on a mobility scooter because she needs to would be a good thing. It will show a relatability as well as removing a stigma.

Someone explain please. Even more left of centre commentators are losing patience with the fella.

Might look a bit daft with her footmen loaded onto each corner.

Nah, they'd be flanking her (just behind of course) in two more scooters. The Queen is the leader of the pack remember 🙂

If she can no longer get out and about (only perhaps by wheelchair), then I'd say the odds were pretty short.
