Royal fans raised fears after the nation’s longest-serving monarch appeared with a deep purple blemish on her hand while welcoming the King and Queen of Jordan to Buckingham Palace earlier this week. Buckingham Palace has refused to say why the Queen’s hand has turned purple bruise but a medical condition called peripheral cyanosis - which refers to a bluish discolouration to your hands and feet – could explain why the 92-year-old’s hand is covered in the huge mark. The condition is usually caused by low oxygen levels in the red blood cells or issues getting oxygenated blood to your body.
But it could be a sign of an underlying condition if warming your hands and feet up doesn’t restore normal blood flow or colour.
According to the NHS website, the affected limbs will usually feel cold due to poor blood circulation.
This could be due to a number of issues, including an artery problem,
