 Queens and Hakhel ceremonies

The Rav Name:

I am wondering if it is plausible that Shlomtzion HaMalkah might have performed the Hakhel ceremony. During her 9-year reign (76-67 BCE), there would have been at least one and possibly two Hakhel ceremonies to be performed. Are queens regnant, though very rare in Jewish history, allowed to perform the Hakhel?

Thank you
