The Queen of England, Elizabeth, has cancelled an official royal engagement at the eleventh hour, on account of her health.
A statement from Buckingham Palace was issued announcing The Duke of Kent would take Her Majesty’s place at a commemorative church service being held in London.
“The Queen is not feeling well under this weather today. She has decided not to attend this morning’s service at St Paul’s Cathedral. It also marks the 200th anniversary of the Order of St Michael and St George,” the Palace said.
“Instead, her Majesty will be represented by The Duke of Kent as Grand Master of the Order.”
The health concerns are not believed to be anything major. A spokesperson told Telegraph UK there is no doctor or hospital involved.
Queen Elizabeth still plans to travel to Windsor in the afternoon. There she’ll spend the weekend before heading to Scotland as planned next week for engagements there.
The Queen has been fulfilling a number of royal duties in the past few weeks, including Royal Ascot and The Queen’s Young Leaders Awards earlier this week, where she was joined by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“Queen Elizabeth has met the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan on more than a few occasions, privately and publicly. It’s been a fantastic opportunity for her to get to know more about her new bride and where her passions lie”.
Most recently, the Duchess of Sussex attended her first solo royal engagement along the 92-year-old reigning monarch. There, they opened the Mersey Gateway Bridge at Catalyst Science Discovery Centre in Chesire.
We all hope and pray that the newest royal bride will take care of the Queen.
