E! News: Queen Elizabeth skipped scheduled event due to ill health
Queen Elizabeth II, the head of the British Royal Family has skipped St. Paul Cathedral's service due to feeling under the weather, but her importance wasn't forgotten.
The 92-year-old's absence was highly noted during the service, which took place on Thursday morning, June 28, 2018, marking the 200th Anniversary of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George.
The announcement was made through Buckingham Palace's Twitter page and it was explained to the fans and followers of the Royal Family that the Duke of Kent would be representing the Queen at the ceremony.
It is yet unknown what drove Queen Elizabeth to not appear in public at such an important event, but according to The Telegraph, no doctor was called to the Palace nor was Queen Elizabeth taken to a hospital.

Unlike popular belief, the members of the Royal family have pretty busy schedules and they are constantly attending gatherings, meetings and charity events.
Earlier this week, for example, Queen Elizabeth hosted the Young Leaders Awards at Buckingham Palace, which honored the success of several change-makers from the 53 countries in the Commonwealth.

Prince William also had a first-time experience during a trip to the Middle East. The Duke of Cambridge became the first member of the royal family to ever set foot in Israel and 'occupied Palestinian territories.'
William's visit served as an endeavor to build bridges, rekindle long-lost friendships and to create brand-new ones, such as the one he started with Crown Prince Hussein.
