Her Majesty was due to travel to Scotland for the high-profile engagement on Monday 1 November, but will send a pre-recorded video message instead.

Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton are all still expected to attend the crunch climate crisis conference in Glasgow which begins on Sunday (31 October).
