Queen Elizabeth misses Remembrance Sunday service after back sprain
London – The Queen has missed the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London as she has sprained her back.
Buckingham Palace said the monarch, 95, was “disappointed” not to attend the event.
The palace previously said it was the Queen’s “firm intention” to attend the service, after taking time away from her duties for health reasons.
She made the decision to miss the event “with great regret” this morning, a statement said.
As in previous years, a wreath was laid on her behalf by the Prince of Wales.
The Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and The Princess Royal also still attended as planned. (BBC)
