Lorraine airs concerns for Queen as she misses another event amid health battle

On Wednesday ITV host Lorraine Kelly spoke to royal presenter Russell Myers about her concerns for the Queen.

Lorraine began the interview by suggesting the other members of the royal family will have to "step up a bit and share some of the burden" since the Queen faced her latest health worries.

The monarch missed the annual Remembrance Sunday event this November due to a back sprain and was said to be "disappointed" to miss the important occasion.

Speaking to Russell, who was in Jordan for Prince Charles and Camilla 's tour of Egypt, Lorraine appeared sympathetic and concerned for the Queen 's health.

Russell said: "We haven't seen the Queen out and about recently. She has had her health troubles of late.

"Unfortunately she had to pull out of the Remembrance Sunday event at the weekend.

"And again she had to pull out of a meeting of Church leaders yesterday. Prince Edward was on hand to give her speech on her behalf."

He added: "She has had to take a step back after that hospital stay. It is about time she took a little bit of time out. Take it easy on doctor's orders.

"And the others have to step up and I think we'll be seeing a lot more of them."

Lorraine expressed her concern about how the Queen will cope this Christmas. It will be her first one without her husband by her side in 73 years.

She asked Russell: "They're all going to have to step up a bit and share some of the burden, aren't they?"

Clearly having the Royals on her mind, Lorraine also spoke to royal editor Roya Nikkhah on Monday's programme.

The pair remarked on how upset Prince Charles appeared on Remembrance Sunday as he lay down the wreath on her behalf.

Lorraine admitted she had "never seen him looking this upset."
