Queen, 95, pulls out of Commonwealth Day service and asks Prince Charles to represent her

THE QUEEN has asked Prince Charles to represent her at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey next week.

Her Majesty will continue with other planned engagements, including in-person Audiences, in the week ahead, the palace has confirmed.


The service on Monday will be attended by The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Princess Alexandra.

The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester will no longer attend, following his positive test for Covid.

It's understood the Queen regrets that she is unable to attend, but that her absence is not related to illness.

The Sun understands that discussions addressed issues of comfort for the Queen when travelling and attending the service.

Earlier this month, some of her engagements were cancelled as she continued to suffer with cold-like symptoms from Covid.

Her Majesty has recovered well but a cautious approach is remaining in place for the near future.
