    The Queen has had surgery on her eye to remove a cataract.

    Cataracts are cloudy patches on the eye’s lens which can cause blurred vision and eventually blindness.

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

    The 92-year-old monarch had been seen wearing sunglasses at recent events but did not cancel or postpone any engagements.
