Well I haven't seen it in The Times and I've had one delivered every day for the past 2 years.

This is the Atticus article mentioned in The Royalist; there's a small snippet about the rumour there:

Excitable royal gossips last week suggested that bone cancer was the real reason behind the Queen’s bad back, but palace officials are snorting at this idea.
So the truth of the matter is that The Times commented on rumours, they didn't start the rumours. What the Dickens is the matter with people?

We have to remember that the Queen is 80. Her back is going to take time to heal. But I am hoping it is nothing more serious. I was actually suprised at how frail the Queen sounded at the New Zealand war memorial.

That being said, if the Queen doesn't attend the Opening of Parliament, I'm going to assume her condition is worse than we thought. (while I don't believe she is terminally ill, I am wondering if this is something more than just a strained back).

While i dont believe the palace is very forthcoming with these type of things, i do think that the queens slurred and slow speech on sat was due to heavy medication. there's other reasons why people would start speaking like that such as strokes, but as far as we know her heart is healthy and she has been out and about through out these days. So i would put it down to heavy medication--perhaps she woke up in loads of pain but still felt she had to be there so she went but heavily medicated--thus the slow walking and slow and slurred speech. She was walking better today but by her face today and over the past few days one can tell she isnt feeling well.

It will be very interesting to see what happens at the opening of parliament- i really hope that she does not wear the robes and heavy crown because that would be detrimental to her condition. In any case my respect for her has grown immensely because anyone else in her situation would not continue working, one can really tell that this is a determined and devoted woman and her country should be grateful they have her as queen.

It's odd, when I first heard Her Majesty speak my first thought was did she have a stroke? But I agree that the Queen has most likely been put on strong muscle relaxers and that can cause difficulty with speech. The good news is she looked much more fit during the Ceremony on Sunday.

We'll find out how serious her condition is come Wednesday. If she opens Parliament full regalia and all then we're worried about nothing.

My respect too for the Queen has grown. She is such a devoted woman, putting Country and Commonwealth a head of herself.

If the Queen had had a stroke, we would have been told. As you say, her voice is likely to be a little distorted if she's taking medication - high doses that is. The Queen will open Parliament with full regalia. It's her style.

Crown, commoner converge in Queen's Speech

By tradition, Elizabeth will open a new, year-long session of Parliament by reading to the members of the combined houses of Commons and Lords the "Queen's Speech."

I particularly like this part.
Quote:
The ritual also suggests that while prime ministers might come and go, somehow there will always be an England, replete with horse-drawn carriage, crown and throne, and a little tension between those who think a monarchy is outdated and those wedded to the tradition.

She does look lovely and she will surely look regal tomorrow in her outfit for the State Opening of Parliament, dressed with the Imperial State Crown. Anxious to see the pictures!!

Queen and Prince Phlip to visit the USA
Queen puts security at heart of speech


The Queen has today focused on home security and law and order in her speech to officially open parliament.
In a government speech that was heavily trailed, the Queen announced 26 bills, many of which were concerned with security and crime, although there was no mention of a specific new terrorism bill.

Well, I think we can safely say that we have the greatest Queen in the world. She was in pain but she did her duty. When I saw her walking into that House, I must admit I got a little teary. She's so devoted to us that she'll always, no matter what, fufill her duties as our Head of State. I'm proud to be a subject of Queen Elizabeth II.
