Breaking News:Queen still ill so it was canceled visit to Westminster Abbey / UK News

The Queen will no longer attend today’s Commonwealth service as she recovers from gastroenteritis, Buckingham Palace says.

Queen Elizabeth II. had been due to attend the Commonwealth Day Observance at London’s Westminster Abbey that will see High Commissioners from across the globe in the congregation, and a key-note address from Sir Richard Branson.

The Duke of Edinburgh will now be the only senior royal representative but the Palace said the Queen would attend an evening reception where she will sign the new Commonwealth charter.

The monarch spent 24-hours in hospital last week being treated for the illness which leaves sufferers with vomiting and diarrhoea.

The Queen hopes to undertake some of her official engagements planned for the rest of the week, the Palace added.

She used her annual address on Monday to urge nations to harness “ambition and curiosity” to “create a better future”.

“”From climbing the highest mountain, to winning a sporting competition, making a scientific breakthrough, building a successful business or discovering unique artistic talent – these outcomes all begin as a simple goal or idea in one person’s mind,” she said.

The pre-recorded message will be part of a service at Westminster Abbey celebrating economic innovation throughout the Commonwealth and a commitment towards youth, social and sustainable enterprise.
