Prince Charles has shared an update on the Queen during a visit in South London after concerned well-wishers questioned him on his mother's health.

The Prince of Wales has insisted the Queen is "alright" after being asked by her doctors to stick to "light duties".

Charles was greeted by crowds of people as he left a branch of the NatWest bank in Brixton following an engagement for the Prince's Trust on Thursday morning.

One man asked him, "Prince Charles, how is your mother?"


To which he responded, "She's alright, thank you."

It comes as the Queen is set to miss the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albery Hall in London on Saturday night.

Charles and wife Camilla will lead other members of the royal family including Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Princess Royal at the annual event.

Buckingham Palace has revealed it's the Queen's "firm intention" to be at the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph, however, her attendance isn't confirmed just yet.

The Queen returned to Windsor Castle from Sandringham earlier this week, where she was resting up after being given doctor's orders to do so.

She spent one night in hospital last month for "preliminary investigations" with doctors telling her to remain on "light duties" for two weeks.

The Queen pulled out of a recent trip to Northern Ireland and the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow following the orders to rest.

It comes after a royal expert claimed to The Sun that Her Majesty is "coming to terms" with the idea that "she won't be around forever".

During her recorded Cop26 speech last week, the Queen paid tribute to Prince Charles and Prince William, telling delegates, "None of us will live forever."

Royal biographer Angela Levin said, "Perhaps she's telling us she's coming to terms with the fact she won't be around forever.

"She's a spiritual and religious woman. Perhaps she's prepared to go on in her role, but recognises that she's getting older."
