Further fears for the Queen over concerning detail in photo

Royal watchers are once again fearing for the Queen's health as a small detail in new photos sparked concern.

The 96-year-old met with Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon this week with the pair being photographed at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh

Social media users shared their concern after seeing what appeared to be a bruise on the monarch's right hand.

The royal family shared a photo of the meeting with one user writing, "Lovely photo.

What's the matter with Her Majesty's hand? Looks nasty."

Is that a bruise on her hand? Looks like it’s been slammed in a door or she’s had a fall," another concerned fan questioned.

It's not the first time the Queen's hands have sparked concerns with a photo of Her Majesty taken last year after her brief hospital stay revealing she had purple hands.

At the time, Dr Jay Verma the Shakespear Medical Centre told Metro, "It might be Raynaud’s phenomenon or just really cold hands! The purple is due to deoxygenated blood."
