Piers Morgan has shared that he fears the palace is hiding the truth around the Queen's health from the public after she pulled out of the Remembrance service on Sunday.

The host said he "hoped" he was wrong in an Instagram post, which read: "The Queen will miss the Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph for only the 5th time in her reign (twice, she was aboard, and twice she was pregnant).

"The Palace says she has 'sprained her back' but I’m beginning to fear there is something they’re not telling us about her health."

He continued, "Hope I’m wrong. Remember them today, and remember Her Majesty too."

Prince Charles led Britain in remembering fallen soldiers during a poignant service and was joined by various members of the royal family including Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

Prince William was also in attendance, joining the march, while wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge took the Queen's place on the balcony to look on.

The Queen, who has been resting for a month under doctor's orders, was "deeply disappointed" to miss today's service.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today's Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph.

"Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service.

"As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty's behalf by the Prince of Wales.

"His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned."

The Queen regards the Remembrance Sunday Service as one of the most significant engagements of the year.

It's believed the sprain is recent and unrelated to her doctors' advice to rest.

According to The Sun, sources have shared their concerns over how a car journey to London and a period of standing would impact the Queen's injury.

One said it is "incredibly unfortunate timing and nobody regrets her absence today more deeply than her Majesty herself".

Her Majesty will remain at Windsor Castle and doesn't require hospital treatment. She was recently advised to step back from official duties by medics following an overnight stay in hospital.
