Prince Charles has insisted that The Queen is doing “alright” following her short stay in hospital and cancelling her public engagements at her doctor’s advice.
The 72 year old was met with floods of well-wishers as he appeared outside a NatWest bank branch in Brixton on Thursday to meet The Prince’s Trust Young Entrepreneurs.
Charles received a warm welcome as people lined up to enquire about his mother’s health.
One man asked: “Prince Charles, how is your mother?” To which Charles responded: “She's, she’s alright thank you.”
For the occasion in South London, the royal wore a crisp white shirt with a pin-striped grey suit and proudly displayed his red poppy on his lapel as a symbol of remembrance.
The thoughtful inquiries come after the 95-year-old monarch has cancelled all public engagements at her doctor’s advice and it emerged that she had a short stay in hospital for “preliminary investigations. ”
The palace has not revealed why the monarch was taken to hospital or the nature of these investigations.
The Queen was given permission by medics to take her annual trip to Sandringham country estate in Norfolk with her staff and dogs.
It was an annual tradition for the monarch and her late husband to spend a week together at the estate this time of year and she did not want to miss it.
The Queen was flown back to Windsor Castle after her short stay in Sandringham, which led many to hope she would appear at the Remembrance events this weekend.
At present, it has been confirmed that Charles and Camilla will be the senior royals to lead the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday, as the Queen will not attend.
Other royals who will be present at the event include Prince William and Kate Middleton, 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.
The Queen also cancelled her visit to Glasgow for the Cop26 climate change, but delivered a pre-recorded video message from Windsor, as doctors allowed her to continue with “light” desk duties.
It is still the monarch’s “firm intention” to be at the traditional Remembrance Sunday parade at the Cenotaph this weekend.
