I believe the exact term used by Buckingham Palace is 'unwell". Just looked at the engagement list and the engagements for tomorrow and Friday are still listed. She must be better already.

Sorry to here Sophie isn't feeling well. Hopefully it's nothing serious and she's better again soon. I just got over a nasty cold myself. I catch one every time this year when the weather changes.

Royal visit will bring HMS Daring to life

The Countess of Wessex is returning to the Clyde to power up the world's most advanced warship.
The Royal VIP will switch on diesel generators which will bring the Clyde-built Type 45 destroyer HMS Daring to life.
The Countess will return to the Scotstoun yard next Friday, nine months after launching Daring.

It is supposed to be a poppy. Wearing of poppies as a symbol of remembrance began in America, when a university teacher (Monia Michel) read a poem called "In Flanders Fields"

Flanders Fields, in France, was the site of some of the bloodiest fighting of WWI, and in the aftermath of the destruction caused there, the only thing that was able to grow was the red poppy. They were originally sold to raise money for ex-servicemen.

Major George Howson had the idea of helping ex-service people who had been disabled in the war, by making and selling the poppies.

Here is more information about the poem and at the end it has the poem

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Flanders_Fields

It was written by John McCrae, he was a Canadian doctor durning WWI and wrote to peom after the death of his friend at the Battle of Ypres. In 1918 he died in a field hospital after getting pneumonia.

Wiki says the poppy grew there because it was where the dead were buried but, this gives the real reason.

poppies only flower in rooted up soil. Their seeds can lie on the ground for years and years, and only when someone roots up the ground, they will sprout. There was enough rooted up soil on the battlefield of the Western Front; in fact the whole front consisted of churned up soil. So in May 1915, when McCrae wrote his poem, around him poppies blossomed like no one had ever seen before.

http://home.vicnet.net.au/~rasigsau/flanders_fields.htm

It is certainly a very emotive poem
