Elizabeth II was suffering from cancer, the book that tells the truth of the Queen's death
Although her death certificate recorded "old age" as the official version of the Queen's cause of death, the new book, Elizabeth An Intimate Portrait reveals that the Queen suffered from cancer in the last year of her life.
In the biography to be published on December 8, writer and friend of Queen Elizabeth's husband, Gyles Brandreth, claims that the late monarch suffered from a form of bone marrow cancer, the most common symptom of which is bone pain.
"I had heard that the Queen had a form of myeloma, cancer of the bone marrow, which would explain her fatigue and weight loss and those 'mobility issues' we were often told about in the last year of her life.
The most common symptom of myeloma is bone pain, especially in the pelvis and lower back, and multiple myeloma is a disease that often affects the elderly," Brandreth writes.
