The Queen's illness has forced her to withdraw from a number of engagements in a typically busy schedule this week. They include:
- A trip on Monday to visit HMS Lancaster in London.
- A reception at Buckingham Palace for MPs and MEPs on Tuesday. The event is now most likely to be hosted by another member of the Royal family.
- A two-day visit to Rome with the Duke of Edinburgh, which was scheduled to begin on Thursday.
