As the Queen continues to struggle with her mobility, new measures have been put in place at Balmoral to ensure her comfort .

As the Queen continues to enjoy her summer break at Balmoral, special changes have reportedly been made at the estate to ease her mobility struggles - including a special buggy to help her travel around the grounds.

After it was revealed that the Queen was struggling with her health and experiencing mobility issues, Her Majesty has been frequently spotted using a walking stick and embracing using a wheelchair, to help her travel more comfortably - she even attended this year's Chelsea Flower Show in a luxury buggy.

Now as she spends the last of the summer at her Scottish estate, The Daily Mail's Ephraim Hardcastle has claimed that a number of changes have been made to the castle.

He revealed that a large removal van was spotted in July, delivering an electric buggy and a special orthopedic bed, which was transported from her Windsor residence. 

The buggy is said to have cost £62,000 and includes a number of add-ons - like a blue tooth and a mini-bar. That’s definitely what we’d call traveling in style.

The news comes as the monarch is making the transition into more of a ‘virtual Queen’ due to her health concerns, with members of The Firm taking on more royal engagements in her stead.

Thankfully, along with her new home comforts, she also has company as it’s thought that Prince William, Kate and the Queen’s great-grandchildren; George, Charlotte and Louis are still visiting ahead of the new school term.
