These little lines that are dropped in that are very easy to read into. Then Charles was asked recently as well about it and basically, his words were to the effect of, she's 95 and it's just not possible. I feel that gives us a very strong sense of the direction now that there is this wide acknowledgment that she cannot be as visible or as busy,” Murphy said via Express.
“[Palace aides] are balancing this issue of her being very elderly and entitled to medical privacy being head of state and when the public does need to know. I think it's probably fair to say that they're not going to release all the information. There are probably lots of details that we're not aware of but when it comes to stuff that they do put out, I don't believe there is any question in the accuracy of that. It's more what else going on that we're not fully getting,” Murphy added.
