Queen soldiers on with another engagement after back sprain health scare

In images released by the Palace on Thursday afternoon, Queen Elizabeth II appeared onscreen for another virtual audience from Windsor Castle, where she is in residence. The occasion marked the second time Her Majesty, 95, has been seen since spraining her back.

The sovereign welcomed the Vietnamese ambassador Nguyen Hoang Long, who was at Buckingham Palace, via video link on Thursday. 

During the audience, the ambassador presented his credentials and the letters of recall of his predecessor.

The ambassador was joined by his wife Vu Huong Giang for the occasion. 

For the audience, the Queen donned her signature pearl necklace and accessorised her turquoise dress, with black collar detail with a sparkly brooch. 

The engagement comes after concerns were raised for Her Majesty’s health after she cancelled a number of appearances over the past month.

Her Majesty’s appearance at the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph last weekend was cancelled as she had sprained her back.

Buckingham Palace said she was “disappointed” she had to cancel her plan to attend.

Shortly before the service, the Palace issued a statement reading: “The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.

Prince Charles, who is currently on a royal tour of Jordan with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall offered an insight into the health of his mother during the trip.

He said the Queen is “alright” but “once you get to 95 it’s not quite as easy as it used to be”.

The monarch has also cancelled trips to Northern Ireland and Glasgow.
