Speaking to Weekend Sunrise, GP Ginni Mansberg said the average person in the UK dies at the age of 82, so it was “amazing” that the Queen made it to 96.
“The leading cause of death in women is dementia — clearly, she didn’t have it,” Mansberg told Sunrise.
“Heart disease and stroke are the next two — she could have had a stroke, she could have had a heart attack.”
Mansberg said the Queen didn’t seem to have suffered long as she was in high-level meetings in the days leading up to her death.
In her senior year, the Queen’s deterioration was evident as she struggled with multiple health issues, including a sprained back and contracting COVID-19.
“She lost some weight, she walked with a cane,” Mansberg said, noting that the 96-year-old never chose to use a walker or wheelchair.
“Having all your marbles to do work duties…amazing!”
“As you get older, you become frailer, you don’t have as much muscle strength, you don’t have as much energy… Completing the kinds of tasks she had to perform would be exhausting.”
Mansberg said Prince Philip’s death may also have contributed to Queen Elizabeth’s ill health.
“She lost her longtime husband and statistically the number of partners who die within 12 months of losing a partner is a very high risk time,” she said.
“Grief puts an extra strain on the body, and it’s really hard to lose someone you’ve been married to for so long, and you’re still in your mid-nineties.”
