Queen Shrugs Off Bad Back to Visit Eton

October 15, 2012

According to the Daily Express:

The Queen smiled through the pain of a sore back to attend a dinner at Eton College last night after earlier cancelling an appearance at TV cook Mary Berry’s investiture ceremony.

Palace aides feared the investiture would be too much for the Queen, having to stand for an hour presenting honours to more than 80 recipients.

The 86-year-old monarch, who missed church at Balmoral last Sunday after complaining of twinges in her back, has attended a number of engagements in the past few days but the ceremony was ruled out.
