Queen Of England Too Ill To Attend New Year's Service by Arizonaguy(m): 12:58pm On Jan 01, 2017
The Queen will miss a New Year's Day church
service at Sandringham because of a lingering
"heavy cold", Buckingham Palace has said.
The monarch and Prince Philip both fell ill before
Christmas, which forced them to delay their
departure from London to the Norfolk estate for
their annual festive break.
The Queen was also unable to attend a Christmas
Day ceremony at St Mary Magdalene church
for the first time since 1988.
Although she is thought to be up and about, she is
still recovering from the persisting cold and felt
unable to join other members of the royal family
for today's 11am service.
A Palace spokeswoman said: "The Queen does not
yet feel ready to attend church as she is still
recuperating from a heavy cold."
The Duke of Edinburgh did attend the service, led
by the Bishop of Norwich, after fully recovering
from his cold.
He was joined by Prince Charles and Prince Harry,
along with other members of the royal family.
The Queen, who turned 90 in April, traditionally
spends Christmas at Sandringham with her family.
She and the Duke of Edinburgh eventually made it
to Norfolk a day late after cancelling a train
journey and flying by helicopter instead.
The Queen, who is the world's longest-reigning
living monarch, said in December she
would reduce the number of her patronages .
Her role with 25 organisations, including Battersea
Dogs & Cats Home, Barnardo's and the Rugby
Football Union, will be passed on to other
members of the royal family this year.

I get this feeling that her end will bring huge changes. She got in power when Britain had colonies all over the place. I don't think people outside UK - especially former colonies will look at her successor with equal reverence.
