Queen Elizabeth II Feeling 'Under the Weather,' Skips Church Service

According to The Telegraph, there was no doctor called and The Queen still intends to travel as planned to Windsor this afternoon ahead of a busy calendar of engagements in Scotland next week.

Buckingham Palace says Queen Elizabeth II is feeling poorly and has cancelled a planned appearance.

"Her Majesty will be represented by The Duke of Kent as Grand Master of the Order", a palace statement said.

She has reigned in Britain and other Commonwealth realms since 1952 and is now the world's longest-serving head of state.

They have far more quality than South Korea in their squad and should secure a comfortable victory in this one. South Korea handled their end of the bargain, but Sweden defeated Mexico 3-0 as those two countries moved on.

The British monarch underwent surgery to treat an eye cataract last month, though the queen is known for her robust health and still carries out hundreds of engagements every year.

"Following the service The Queen, accompanied by The Prince of Wales, will present a new Queen's Colour to the Royal Air Force on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace and make a short speech".

Susan Sarandon daringly shunned royal etiquette when she attended an event with the Queen last weekend. Although she was not on hand, Angelina Jolie did attend the service in London.
