UK’s Queen Elizabeth II Feeling Unwell, Bows Out of Official Engagement

LONDON – The United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II was feeling unwell on Thursday and therefore was unable to attend a service at Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said.

The 92-year-old royal, who is the world’s longest-reigning living monarch, had been scheduled to participate in an event marking the 200th anniversary of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George.

“The queen is feeling under the weather today and has decided not to attend this morning’s service,” the Palace said.

Prince Edward, The Duke of Kent, attended the service in the Queen’s place.

It was hoped the Queen would be feeling better by the afternoon so she could go to Windsor Castle, her residence outside the capital, where she was planning to spend the weekend, the spokesperson said.

The Queen was forced to miss out on the Christmas service she usually attends back in 2016 due to a cold.

That lingering cold also made her stay away from the New Year’s Day service a week later.

“The Queen sees public and voluntary service as one of the most important elements of her work,” according to the Palace.

The Order of St. Michael and St. George is a chivalry award given by the monarch on the advice of the UK’s prime minister.
