The Queen Will Not Attend Big Summer Event After Experiencing 'Discomfort' At Jubilee

The Queen is reportedly
not attending the Commonwealth Games next month and will be represented by her
son Prince Charles, according to the Daily Mail.

The publication reports that
Charles will attend the opening ceremony in Birmingham on 28 July in his
mother’s place. Other members of the royal family are also expected to attend
sporting events throughout the tournament.

It comes after the Queen
celebrated her Platinum Jubilee over the bank holiday weekend. During the
four-day extravaganza, the 96-year-old monarch appeared in public for 27
minutes and had to pull out of various engagements last-minute due to her
ongoing mobility issues.

She attended Trooping the
Colour on Thursday 2 June although chose to take the salute from the balcony of
Buckingham Palace instead of riding in the carriage procession to Horse Guards
Parade as she normally does. She also attended a beacon-lighting ceremony with
her grandson Prince William that evening.

But after the first day of
celebrations, the palace announced that while the Queen “greatly
enjoyed” her birthday parade, she did “experience some
discomfort,” due to which she would be canceling her appearance at
Friday’s national thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Members of the royal family
were out in force to attend the service, including the Duchess of Cambridge,
who was asked about the Queen’s health at a post-event reception in Guildhall.

Speaking to attendee Gill
Smallwood from Bolton, Gill told PA that Kate had said in response to
her query, “Yes, she [the Queen] was fine, it was just very tiring
yesterday,” before adding that the monarch “had a lovely, lovely
time.”

The palace had also previously
announced that the royal would not be attending the Derby at Epsom on Saturday. The Queen’s final Jubilee appearance was on Sunday when she
stepped out onto the Buckingham Palace balcony to greet crowds during the
finale of the Pageant.
