Queen’s new shades

Sunday Tasmanian - - News | World -

NOW we know why the Queen has been wear­ing sun­glasses at re­cent pub­lic events in­clud­ing the Royal Wind­sor Horse Show.

Her Royal High­ness un­der­went surgery last month to re­move a cataract from her eye, Buck­ing­ham Palace has an­nounced.

The 92-year-old monarch, who oth­er­wise seems hail and hearty, was treated as a day pa­tient at the pri­vate King Ed­ward VII hos­pi­tal, London. Her Majesty “suc­cess­fully un­der­went a short planned pro­ce­dure”, a spokesman from the palace said.

A cataract is a cloud­ing of the lens in the eye, lead­ing to a de­crease in vi­sion.
