That's the tonic! Queen being nurtured back to health by watching her favourite TV shows



    Since the death of her husband, Prince Philip, some of the monarch’s closet courtiers have remained loyally by her side. Paul Whybrew, the Queen’s favourite courtier – who is known as “Tall Paul” due to his 6ft 4in frame – and her dresser Angela Kelly are said to be a near-constant presence by her side.

    Mr Whybrew, 62, is seen as indispensable by the monarch.

    Said to be the only person trusted to touch her jigsaw puzzles, Mr Whybrew has been watching television with the Queen and, along with Ms Kelly, keeping her company as she convalesces.

    An early sign of his loyalty came in 1982 when he wrestled Michael Fagan to the ground after the intruder broke into the Queen’s bedroom at Buckingham Palace.

    After calming Fagan down, Mr Whybrew, whose title is Page of the Backstairs, offered him a whisky.

    The courtier was also seen walking beside the Queen during her cameo with Daniel Craig as James Bond in a sketch for the opening of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

    The daughter of a Liverpool docker, Ms Kelly is so close to the Queen that she was granted rare permission to write a book on her 20-year career inside the Palace.

    A Palace source said: “The Queen is very grateful for the loyal support she has received.”

    Earlier this month, the Queen was hospitalised for “preliminary investigations,” and advised by medical staff to rest.

    “Following medical advice to rest for a few days, The Queen attended hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some preliminary investigations, returning to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today, and remains in good spirits,” read a statement released by a Buckingham Palace spokesperson.

    This resulted in the cancellation of several high profile events, including a visit to Northern Ireland and the COP26 summit in Glasgow, Her Majesty has been advised to take further rest by doctors.

    A statement from the palace said: “Following on from their recent advice that The Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks.”

    Doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not to undertake any official visits.

    This means she will be unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday, November 13.

    However, it remains the Queen’s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, November 14.

    Boris Johnson said the Queen is in “very good form” after the 95-year-old monarch was advised to rest for the next two weeks.

    The Queen has been advised by her doctors to rest and only undertake “desk-based duties”, Buckingham Palace announced yesterday.

    The Prime Minister spoke to the Queen as part of his normal weekly audience with the monarch on Wednesday.
