Queen Elizabeth to miss Remembrance event due to sprained back

Queen Elizabeth will miss a Remembrance service today as she has a “sprained back”.

This would have been the Queen’s first planned public appearance since resting on medical advice.


Her absence will deepen concerns after she stepped back at the end of last month on medical advice, and spent a night in hospital.

“The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph,” a palace statement said.

“Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service.”


“Mindful of her doctors’ recent advice, The Queen has decided not to attend”, the statement said.
