It is also believed that the Queen’s appearance at the church service will not be confirmed until later and possibly only on the day itself.

She suffers from episodic mobility issues that have curtailed some of her scheduled appearances.

However, sources told The Telegraph the Queen was “particularly keen to attend” the event.

Earlier this week, the Queen appeared at the Chelsea Flower show in a luxury buggy to tour the site, an appearance which was only confirmed at the last moment.
