The Queen successfully underwent cataract surgery at King Edward VII’s hospital in May.

Her Royal Highness was treated as a day patient at the London hospital and did not cancel or postpone any engagements as a result of the operation.

The Guardian reports that a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “I can confirm that the Queen successfully underwent a short planned procedure to treat a cataract last month.”

The Queen, who turned 92 years old in April, celebrated her official birthday on Saturday (9 June) with the Trooping the Colour event at Horse Guards Parade.
