Queen Elizabeth II ‘with regret’ withdraws from Easter church service
Queen Elizabeth ‘with regrets’ withdraws from Easter church service.
The 95-year-old monarch will no longer attend a service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on Thursday (14.04.22) and the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall will be the official representation.
It will be the first time that Prince Charles – her 73-year-old son and her heir apparent – will take on the role of his mother during the White Day church service.
During the service, Charles will carry out the tradition of handing out white money to important figures in the community on the Thursday before Easter.
He and his wife Camilla will meet during the ceremony with the Dean of Windsor, the right Reverend David Conner KCVO and the Lord High Almoner, the right Reverend Dr. John Inge. After the service they are expected to have their picture taken.
The Queen – who will be on the throne for 70 years this year on her platinum jubilee – has withdrawn a number of events in recent times, such as the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey last month and the Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph in November.
However, she was able to attend the memorial service for her late husband Prince Philip – who died in March 2021 at the age of 99 – at Westminster Abbey with the support of a walking stick.
In February, Queen Elizabeth was forced to cancel a number of virtual appointments after testing positive for COVID-19, despite experiencing only “cold symptoms”.
