Although she has suffered three bouts of uncontrolled shaking in public, and remained seated this week as national hymns were played during a ceremony with Denmark's new prime minister, the German chancellor insists she is doing "very well".

Almost 60 per cent of Germans feel that Chancellor Angela Merkel's bouts of uncontrolled shaking are a personal matter, according to a survey published today.

Published by the German Augsburger Allgemeine newspaper, the survey says that 59.2 per cent of respondents think that Merkel's health is her private matter.

According to the poll, most of the supporters of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party believed that Merkel should provide public with information about her condition, while the majority of the respondents who support the German Social Democratic Party, the Greens and the CDU/CSU alliance thought that it was a private matter.

Bild counted 21 foreign trips that Merkel, who turns 65 next week, has been on so far this year, which it said was more than 41-year-old French President Emmanuel Macron, on 17, and 62-year-old British Prime Minister Theresa May, on 16.

Charming Charlie Is Calling It Quits
Founded in 2004, Charming Charlie was known for arranging its merchandise by color, with its array including as many as 26 hues. The announcement affects more than 3,000 full- and part-time employees across the country, all of whom could lose their jobs.

The chancellor, who has no history of serious health issues, said "I am fine" on Wednesday, after trembling at the ceremony to receive Finland's prime minister.

But she has declined to give any details about her health. Mrs Merkel is famously private, only rarely making public appearances with her husband. This is in stark contrast to her predecessor Gerhard Schroeder - who faced questions in office about his marriage and whether he dyed his hair.

She plans to step down before the next federal parliamentary election, due in 2021.

Merkel chose to seek a fourth term only after long reflection, and said in November 2016 she was seeking to stay on "if health allows".

Leading the European Union's largest economy, Ms Merkel is renowned for her work ethic and has a reputation for outlasting other leaders at EU summits with her ability to focus on the details of complex discussions deep into the night.
