And nearly half think that it is ethical for the Queen to still be working when she is 90.

The research has been released to conincide with the Queen's 90th birthday.

Commenting on the report findings, the Director of Benenden Hospital Jane Abbot, who is also the Clinical Director of Benenden, said: "We know that maintaining good healthcare past middle age is a serious consideration for the ageing British population.
