Queen too ill to attend engagement at St Paul's Cathedral

Her Majesty's trip to Scotland next week is set to go ahead with a series of events before she returns to London to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the RAF with a Buckingham Palace flypast with senior royals, including her new granddaughter-in-law Meghan Markle.

No doctor has been called and the 92-year-old Queen is expected to travel from Buckingham Palace in the capital to Windsor Castle in Berkshire this afternoon for the weekend as planned.

The Queen will not attend an anniversary service this morning at St Paul's Cathedral as she is feeling unwell.

The queen was replaced as Grand Master of the Order by her cousin the Duke of Kent.

At the beginning of the month, it was revealed the Queen had undergone eye surgery to remove a cataract, but wore sunglasses in public rather than cancel her long-planned engagements.

"Members of the Royal Family will attend receptions at Buckingham Palace and at Horse Guards Parade for RAF servicemen and women, RAF veterans and representatives of RAF charities".

The Queen has been fulfilling a number of royal duties in the past few weeks, including Royal Ascot and The Queen's Young Leaders Awards earlier this week, where she was joined by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

But she still has a busy diary of events, and in 2017 carried out 296 engagements.

Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926, and became queen in 1952 at the age of 25, meaning she has now reigned for more than 66 years.
