Queen Elizabeth II misses remembrance ceremony with bad back

Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II was forced to move out of the British memorial service for fallen soldiers on Sunday due to a sprained back.

The wreath-laying ceremony in central London would have been a return to public appearances for the 95-year-old monarch, who has missed a number of events for health reasons.

Buckingham Palace said the queen was “disappointed” that she had to miss the event. Her son Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, laid a wreath for her.

Last month, Queen Elizabeth had to cancel a visit to Northern Ireland and withdrew from the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow. Instead, it delivered a pre-recorded video message calling on world leaders to tackle climate change.

At that time, the Queen was advised by doctors to take two weeks Rest, but she had expressed her “firm intention” to attend the memorial service on Sunday.
