Another setback for Queen Elizabeth: instead of attending an event on Sunday, November 14, the monarch had to pull out last minute, the palace revealed.
"The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph," a statement read. "Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service. As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by The Prince of Wales. His Royal Highness, along with The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Earl and Countess of Wessex, The Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned."
The 95-year-old has been advised to rest over the last few weeks, but on Friday, November 12, it was announced that she would be on the move once again.
"The Queen will attend the annual Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph on Sunday 14th November. As in previous years, Her Majesty will view the Service from the balcony of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office building. Mindful of her doctors’ recent advice, The Queen has decided not to attend the General Synod Service and Opening Session on Tuesday 16th November. The Earl of Wessex will attend as planned," Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Thursday, November 11.
Last week, Prince Charles gave an update on how his mother has been feeling.
"Prince Charles, how is your mother?" one person asked the royal.
He replied, "She's all right, thank you."
The Queen recently flew back from her Sandringham Estate, where she took some time to recuperate.
“The Queen has many happy memories of being at Sandringham with the family over Christmas and was in the firm belief that she was far better off being there in person to oversee everything as much as possible," the insider continued. “But she traveled on the understanding with her doctors that she continues to rest as advised.”
