Isabel II is absent again from a public act

The Earl of Wessex, Eduardo, the youngest son of Queen Elizabeth II, will take the place of his mother on Tuesday when giving a speech before the General Synod, in the national assembly of the Church of England, an act to which the sovereign had to attend in person . The new absence adds more concern for the state of health of la monarca, 95 years old, which already last weekend could not be in the so-called Remembrance Sunday, a tribute to those who died in combat, one of his favorite commitments, after having suffered a muscle problem

Elizabeth II is currently in her Windsor residence, on the outskirts of London, taking care of only light tasks virtually. But his health has been worrying for weeks, in which the queen canceled a two-week trip to Northern Ireland; canceled its presence at the climate summit in Glasgow -Cop26– and had to rest for almost a month.
