Lorraine Kelly, 61, has expressed her concern for the Queen, 95, as she had to pull out of yesterday’s Remembrance Sunday. It was announced that the Queen would not be attending the event just hours before she was due to arrive due to spraining her back.
I’ve never seen him looking so upset.
Lorraine said on her show: “I was a bit worried you know as for her not to turn up for this event of all things.
“It’s so interesting as if you look back at the years she’s been at the remembrance ceremony.
“It’s a big deal and she would have been really disappointed.”
The Prince of Wales fulfilled his mothers duties to lay a poppy wreath on the memorial, with Lorraine commenting on his “sad” look.
Lorraine said about his appearance: “I’ve never seen him looking so upset, I don’t think.”
A statement from the Palace insisted the Queen had “great regret” over missing the poignant ceremony.
The announcement read: “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
“Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service.
“As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by The Prince of Wales.
It continued: “His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned.”
The Queen has only missed the service six times previously in her 69 year reign due to pregnancy or overseas travel.
Lorraine has met the Queen before, when she received a special recognition from her Majesty in 2012.
She was awarded this title in the 2012 New Year’s Honours for services to charity.
Lorraine was promoted to Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2020 Birthday honours for services to broadcasting, journalism and charity.
Lorraine has had a lengthy career, starting on GMTV in 1993, presenting a range of programmes.
In March 1993 when Fiona Armstrong went off the main show, Lorraine took over on the main breakfast show with Eamonn Holmes.
On September 6 2010, GMTV ended with ITV Breakfast taking over and Lorraine launched with a brand new look, alongside Daybreak.
In February 2014, Lorraine announced that she would leave Daybreak to focus on Lorraine which she began hosting five days a week from April 2014.
Daybreak was replaced by Good Morning Britain in April 2014.
Lorraine does occasionally report for GMB whenever her show isn’t aired.
