Her Majesty is always seen as active and energetic in almost all her public encounters. Her advisers, however, are always concerned about her well being and balance out her commitments. The Queen is progressing her age superbly, though.

But on June 28 this year, the cruel weather forced her to pull out of a morning service at St. Paul's Cathedral. She had reportedly fallen victim to a mild summer cold. In relevance to this, Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams gave a statement to Express UK that soothed the worried folks:

Everyone knows about the heavy security personnel, but there is another thoughtful measure that the royals take quite seriously. The Queen’s traveling entourage normally comprises of 34 people who logistically arrange her visits topped with her needs. As revealed by Gordon Ryan, a royal expert, the constant companion of her all tours is a tried and tested doctor with proper official prestige.

According to Telegraph UK, the appointed Royal Navy doctor remains on guard with the Queen on all tours. He examines and researches about the nearest hospitals and health hazards of the area beforehand. In countries where a reliable blood donation source is questionable, the Queen and the Prince Philip both travel with their own personal packs of matched blood wherever they go.

Their doctor is never more than a few paces away from the Queen. He is conditioned to carry a bulky medical bag containing a mobile defibrillator and all kinds of emergency supplies with him at all times. All of this without being in plain public's sight. Bravo!
