At the age of 92, Queen Elizabeth is looking and feeling better than ever before. Her cheery appearances and her apparent desire for the well-being of her people is evident in every decision she makes.
Her 66-year reign has left an eternal mark on the world and she’s revered and loved by millions upon millions worldwide. Those that had the privilege of watching her grow and transform into the Queen she is today know just how trying her position has been over the years.
Early Thursday morning, Queen Elizabeth made an unexpected decision that was great cause for concern to many.
She was scheduled to attend a very special church service at St. Paul’s Cathedral to mark the 200th anniversary of the Order of St. Michael and St. George.
At the last moment, she bowed down from the occasion, stating that she was feeling “under the weather” and would not be able to attend. Buckingham Palace made the official announcement that morning:
“The Queen is feeling under the weather today and has decided not to attend this morning’s service at St. Paul’s Cathedral marking the 200th anniversary of the Order of St. Michael and St. George.”
The Order of St. Michael and St. George is a very prestigious ceremony that originated in 1818 by King George IV. Here, many are honored for the magnificent work done for the Commonwealth or for foreign nations.
Because of its high importance, the Queen immediately had a replacement take her place. The statement went on to detail her replacement for the event: “Her Majesty will be represented by [her cousin] The Duke of Kent as Grand Master of the Order.”
According to sources, this unfortunate turn of events is no serious concern. They reassured everyone that the Queen’s illness isn’t serious, and no doctor has been called.
She has yet to cancel any of her remaining plans for the day, so there’s a chance she will still be able to make the remaining appointments. Our thoughts and prayers are with Queen Elizabeth as she attempts to make a very speedy recovery!
