German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been seen shaking at a public event for the third time in less than a month.

The second incident on June 27 rekindled concerns over her health after she was seen again unsteady at the German president's palace as she listened to his comments on the swearing-in of a new justice minister.

The first incident happened in near-identical circumstances as she stood alongside Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy at a military honours ceremony.

In both cases, Merkel played it off as merely feeling unwell, insisting that she had, in fact, recovered shortly after with just a glass of water.

German Chancellor Merkel later addressed this newest episode herself saying that she felt fine and there was no reason to worry.

In the United States, portions of the results of the president's annual medical examination is traditionally made public, but in Germany, political leaders are generally expected to enjoy more privacy around their health.

Merkel, who will turn 65 next Wednesday, is known for her work ethic and has a reputation for outlasting other world leaders at lengthy summits.

A government spokesperson said she would continue meetings as planned.

Still, following the first two bouts of shaking, Merkel shuttled to Japan and back for the Group of 20 summit and attended overnight marathon negotiations in Brussels over European Union top jobs. "I said that I have to process this event and that I am in this process, and I think that just as it came, it will go away one day". She has said she will leave politics when her current term ends in 2021.

She gave no details of any medical advice or treatment she has been given.
