Buckingham Palace said Her Majesty is feeling "under the weather" and had decided not to attend the special service.

The queen was replaced as Grand Master of the Order by her cousin the Duke of Kent.

There appears to be no reason for alarm.

Although the Queen was not on top form today, her condition was not deemed serious enough for a doctor to be called according to Buckingham Palace. She is still scheduled to travel to Windsor, England for the weekend and to attend engagements in Scotland next week.

She also marked the commissioning ceremony of the HMS Queen Elizabeth, and visited London Fashion Week. Just this week, she hosted the Young Leaders Awards at Buckingham Palace alongside her grandson, Prince Harry, and his new wife, Meghan Markle.

The Telegraph reports that Her Majesty was not taken to the hospital.

Queen Elizabeth has pulled out of an official royal engagement last minute, on account of the 92-year-old monarch's health.

At the beginning of the month, it was revealed the Queen had undergone eye surgery to remove a cataract, but wore sunglasses in public rather than cancel her long-planned engagements.

The Queen was seen last week at Ladies Day for the Royal Ascot races in the English county of Berkshire. Duration of her reign is also a record in the history of the UK.

Separately, figures from Clarence House - the Prince of Wales' private office - show an increase in funding of 40% for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex.
