QUEEN ELIZABETH: Another Royal Engagement Canceled

Written by on May 10, 2022

Queen Elizabeth bailed on another royal engagement because of her failing health.

Buckingham Palace said that the 96-year-old monarch cannot attend today’s State Opening of Parliament. They blamed the Queen’s “episodic mobility problems.”

Prince Charles will take his mother’s place by speaking at today’s ceremonious first day of British Parliament.

COVID hit Her Majesty pretty hard. She used a walking cane last month for her husband’s memorial. It’s not a guarantee that Queen Elizabeth can personally attend next month’s Jubilee to celebrate her 70 years of British rule. (BBC)
