Entertainment European Championship of women: Queen congratulates English team on the EM victory
Queen will NOT attend Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in Birmingham next week
The decision will be a blow for the long-reigning monarch, who has always held the Commonwealth Games close to her heart and was present the last time they were held in the UK in 2014. It comes as the 96-year-old has taken a step back from attending some events in an official capacity over the last few months as she deals with 'mobility issues'. However she did attend her Platinum Jubilee celebrations at the beginning of June and as recently as this week was still performing her royal duties despite the sweltering heatwave that gripped the country.
The 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth II congratulated the young English footballers on their first victory in an EM. Chancellor Olaf Scholz was on site - and congratulated both teams.
The British Queen Elizabeth II congratulated the English footballers for their first victory at a European Championship. The 2-1 after extension in the final against Germany in the London Wembley Stadium was "inspiration for girls and women," said the 96-year-old monarch on Sunday evening.

"Congratulations to the Lionesses for the European Championship and the women for world -class performance in a close game," Scholz wrote on Twitter.
