The Queen will not be attending the Epsom Derby tomorrow to allow her some time to rest, Buckingham Palace has announced.

This is the second consecutive Platinum Jubilee event that she has had to cancel due to her mobility issues and the discomfort she is feeling.

Princess Anne is expected to take her seat tomorrow while Her Majesty watches the horse race on TV from Windsor Castle.

The Queen looked jubilant as she waved to the public from the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Trooping the Color on Thursday.

But officials said she felt a certain “discomfort” during the parade and will no longer be attending today’s thanksgiving ceremony at St Paul’s Cathedral.

The Queen has had mobility issues in recent months and has used a wheelchair.

However, when seen in public, the 96-year-old monarch opted for a walking stick instead.

The Queen’s health has been in the spotlight since she spent an unscheduled night in hospital last October.

Since then, she hasn’t attended as many royal events, having trimmed her diary on doctor’s orders

The Queen, who is celebrating 70 years on the throne, contracted Covid-19 in February and is said to have been suffering from mild cold-like symptoms at the time.

Elizabeth, who is a devout Christian and also the nominal head of the Church of England, watched today’s service at St Paul’s on TV from her home in Windsor.

Her son and heir Prince Charles, 73, represented her while much attention was focused on her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.

The couple made their first public appearance together in the UK since stepping down from royal duties two years ago and starting a new life in California.
