Queen Elizabeth Secretly Suffered Painful Cancer Battle In Final Years

  • Queen Elizabeth II spent her final years secretly suffering through painful cancer, according to a new biography of the late British monarch.
  • The Queen, who died in September after more than 70 years on the throne, worked through the agony of bone marrow cancer — the most common symptom of which is bone pain, according to “Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait,” an upcoming biography written by author and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth.
  • In the months leading up to her death at the age of 96, there was widespread speculation that the Queen was dealing with an illness. Her death certificate officially listed her cause of death as “old age.”
  • “I had heard that the Queen had a form of myeloma — bone marrow cancer — which would explain her tiredness and weight loss and those ‘mobility issues’ we were often told about during the last year or so of her life,” Brandreth wrote in the book, which is being serialized by The Daily Mail.
