It was actually supposed to be the monarch’s first public appearance since she was hospitalized in October. But the British Queen Elizabeth II canceled her participation in the traditional World War II commemoration in London on Sunday. As the palace announced, back problems are the reason for the cancellation. The palace also commented on the cancellation: “” After sprained her back, the Queen decided with great regret that she could not attend today’s Remembrance Sunday ceremony at the Cenotaph (the central memorial). “
The sprain is said to have occurred recently, according to the UK news agency PA, which cites unnamed sources. It was questionable whether the Queen’s approach in the car and standing during the memorial ceremony for the fallen could interfere with recovery. Therefore, the monarch decided to stay in Windsor.
It was not until October that the Queen was ordered to rest for several weeks after a hospital stay. The cancellation increases concern for the Queen’s health. Remembrance Sunday is considered one of the most important dates for the royals. So it was hoped until the end that Queen Elizabeth II would be able to take part in the event. Remembrance Sunday always takes place on the Sunday after the anniversary of the end of World War II on November 11, 1918. Great Britain pays tribute to the fallen soldiers.
