Queen Elizabeth II returned to Windsor Castle after spending a short break on her Sandringham estate in Scotland on Wednesday.

The 96-year-old monarch spent a few days with a private company in Norfolk before returning to Berkshire.

Her vacation in Scotland followed a few engagements by the Queen for example, on the first day, the Queen attended the Ceremony of the Keys where she handed the keys to Scotland’s elected officials.

On the following day, she attended the military parade in the gardens of Holyroodhouse Palace. After that, the UK Ruler witnessed the Reddendo Parade with Prince Charles.

Therefore, rest was needed for the 96-monarch she was pictured with purple-colored hands during her meeting with Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon

GP Giuseppe Aragona explained that this case had several causes, expressing: “There are a few different reasons for why the Queen’s hands are so purple.

“A lack of circulation, frail skin, exposed veins, bruising, a leakage of blood to the tissue beneath the skin causing the colour.”

He continued in his interview with Metro: “It could be cyanosis which occurs when there is not enough oxygen in the blood.”

“Blood which has a normal amount of oxygen is a deep red and means your skin is its normal colour, however low oxygenated blood is bluer which causes your skin to have a purple hue,”

“It is known that cyanosis can develop quicker if the person has suffered a minor health problem, so this could be linked to her recent injury.”
