She had been staying at Balmoral in May 1993 when the incident took place that saw her have to have surgery.

The mother of Queen Elizabeth was placed under general anaesthetic to carry out the procedure to remove it at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Dr Timothy Evans was in charge of the Queen’s health at her residence at Windsor Castle.

For Dr Glass, the health of Her Majesty wasn’t his only focus though, also working as a GP.

He is listed as working at Braemar Health Clinic until 2020, however, no information is currently available regarding whether he still works there.

The Queen passed away peacefully and of old age on September 8, 2022, age 96.

Her majesty died just after three in the afternoon, however news of her death wasn’t made public until 6:30pm.

Dr Glass signed the death certificate of the Queen on September 26, confirming she had passed of old age.
