London, March 30 (ANI): British Queen Elizabeth has scrapped plans to attend a major military display in Canada this summer after organizers said she is too old to climb 17 steps to a stage.
The 83-year-old was slated to attend the Nova Scotia Military Tattoo in Halifax in July, reports the Daily Express.
Military marching bands perform ceremonial drills during the event.
However, organizers told Buckingham Palace the 17 stairs to the 12-foot high stage would be too much for the monarch.
Palace officials responded by striking the event from the queen's agenda. (ANI)
