Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is missing out on the famous Highland Games in Braemar, Scotland this year. According to information from the German Press Agency, the background is the mobility problems of the 96-year-old monarch. According to media reports, heir to the throne Prince Charles (73) will be present at the event on Saturday.
Discomfort with walking is also the reason why the Queen will accompany the upcoming change at the top of government in the coming week from Balmoral. Both outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his successor are due to travel to Scotland early next week.
