Piers Morgan worried about the Queen

Piers Morgan shared his thoughts on the latest development after  the Queen has pulled out of hosting a major reception for world leaders at the COP26 climate change summit.

Queen Elizabeth, 95,  was due to travel to Scotland for the high-profile engagement on Monday, but will now record a speech later this week that will be played in a video message to delegates.

Former Good Morning Britain (GMB) presenter voiced his concerns as he penned: "I’m now officially worried about the Queen. Very unusual for her to miss big events like this. Hope she gets all the rest & treatment she needs."

Prince Harry's grandmother wants COP26 to be a success and result in meaningful action from the participating nations. It is hoped no world leaders will use the head of state’s absence as a reason not to attend the global summit in Glasgow.

A palace spokesman said: ‘Following advice to rest, the Queen has been undertaking light duties at Windsor Castle. 'Her Majesty has regretfully decided that she will no longer travel to Glasgow to attend the evening reception of COP26 on Monday, 1st November. Her Majesty is disappointed not to attend the reception but will deliver an address to the assembled delegates via a recorded video message.'

It is pertinent to mention here that Queen Elizabeth faced preliminary tests in hospital on October 20 during her first overnight stay at a medical facility in eight years.
