I really hope he doesnt attend. If anything he should sit back with a good book and some tea and just relax. Please, I cant take much more drama at this point. :)

The Queen has had a number of engagements since she opened the Olympics including attending the first day of the games' competition on which she carried out 5 engagements, having an audience with the Scottish First Minister, Receiving and Replying to a loyal address, a Garden Party at Balmoral and a formal inspection of the military on arrival at Balmoral.

Having only one engagement listed in 'Upcoming Engagements' doesn't mean that there aren't any going to happen - as many weeks I have looked at 'Upcoming Engagements' and found very few and then when going through the CC have come across quite a number not in the upcoming.

Prince Philip will not attend the opening of the Paralympic Games next week, Buckingham Palace confirmed this morning.

This was pretty obvious, I wonder if someone will accompany HM instead.

I suppose Prince Charles and Camilla (like during the Jubilee Thanksgiving Service), or Prince Andrew are the most logical possibilities.

Prince Harry might be available. That would really send the morality police off the deep end if he showed up as her official escort.

Press Association

Quote:
A Palace spokesman said that the Princess Royal and the Earl and Countess of Wessex would accompany the Queen at the opening of the Paralympic Games next week. The names of other royals who will be going will be released in due course, he added.
The Earl and Countess of Wessex and The Princess Royal will accompany the Queen. Edward and Sophie were already attending, so Anne is perhaps considered a replacement for Philip. I for one am glad Philip is not going, he needs to rest and he can watch it on the TV if he so wishes (though I doubt he will!)

Thank goodness the DoE isnt going. I was hoping he would just relax and take it easy. He needs some down time.

The Duke will indeed not attend the Opening Ceremonies of the Paralympic Games, and here's another confirmation from BBC:

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is on the 26th place. Mrs. Sonya Gandhi looked lovely. The rest is so so.

Queen wears hood while driving at Balmoral | The Sun |News

- She just has her hood up, probably because it's Scotland and it rains a lot.

Doesn't look much like a hood to me - more like a opened scarf attached with two clips to her hair...

What ever ... not important anyway

I hope the Duke continues to recover. I guess it is only natural that he needs more rest.

Prince Charles, Camilla and Princess Anne were there too, so I posted the pictures and relevant information in the British Royal Family thread.

I'm glad Philip is feeling better, but we all have to accept the fact he's going to die someday. It's going to be hard on Anne when he does; just like it was with Charles when the Queen Mother died.

Anne's looking away from the camera, and she's wearing a fedora.
