Piers Morgan fears Palace not telling public everything about Queen's health after she pulls out of Remembrance service

PIERS Morgan says he fears the Palace is hiding the Queen's health from the public after she pulled out of the Remembrance service.

The TV host said he "hoped" he was wrong as he commented on Buckingham Palace's announcement that Her Majesty has a "sprained back".

Morgan also gave the Queen his best wishes as he posted a picture on Instagram of her at a previous Remembrance service.

He said: "The Queen will miss the Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph for only the 5th time in her reign (twice, she was aboard, and twice she was pregnant).

"The Palace says she has ‘sprained her back’ but I’m beginning to fear there is something they’re not telling us about her health. Hope I’m wrong.

"Remember them today, and remember Her Majesty too."

Prince Charles led the nation today in remembering our fallen soldiers in a poignant service at the Cenotaph.

It came just hours after the Queen, 95, who has been resting for a month under doctor's orders, was said to be "deeply disappointed" to miss today's service.

The monarch had missed the Festival of Remembrance last night but aides said it was her "firm intention" to attend today's service.

But Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today's Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph.

"Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service.

"As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty's behalf by the Prince of Wales.

"His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned."

Her Majesty has missed the event just six times during her reign – either when pregnant or away on tour.

The monarch regards the poignant service as one of the most significant engagements of the year.


It is understood the sprain is recent and unrelated to her medics' advice to rest.

Sources say there were concerns over how a car journey to London and a period of standing could impact her injury.

One said it is "incredibly unfortunate timing and nobody regrets her absence today more deeply than her Majesty herself".

She will now remain at Windsor Castle and does not require hospital treatment.

The Queen was recently advised to step back from official duties by medics after an overnight stay in hospital.

She had been due to visit Northern Ireland on a two day trip but was forced to cancel and underwent tests instead.

It was the first time the Queen has stayed in hospital since 2013 when she suffered symptoms of gastroenteritis.

The monarch returned to Windsor Castle the next day in "good spirits" and hosted virtual audiences with dignitaries.

She also filmed a video for the COP26 eco-summit after being advised not to fly to Glasgow.

And earlier this month, she was spotted behind the wheel of her understated green five-door Jaguar, which is usually used to ferry her beloved corgis.

It is understood she plans to continue with her schedule of light duties over the next week.
