Queen to miss friend Mandela’s funeral

London — Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, who counted Nelson Mandela as a friend, has reluctantly decided to miss the South African leader’s funeral as she cuts down on long-haul travel.

According to ‘The Sunday Times’, her son Prince Charles is expected to fly to South Africa to represent the 87-year-old monarch at events being held this week to mark the death of the former president.

The heir to Britain’s throne and Prime Minister David Cameron are due to attend.
