Queen Elizabeth II has skipped Christmas for the first time since 1988

LONDON —  An ill Queen Elizabeth II was noticeably absent from Christmas church service this morning prompting concern over the Queen’s health.  Earlier this month, the 90-year-old monarch reportedly fell ill with a “strong cold” and wasn’t able to attend church festivities this morning out of concern for her health according to Buckingham Palace.

Buckingham Palace released a statement confirming that although she missed the service this morning (as confirmed by The Daily News who was present for the service) she would indeed attend further festivities later on this weekend.
