Over the past two weeks the Queen has been raising a few eyebrows after wearing sunglasses to multiple public appearances.

Why, you ask?

Well, sunglasses are normally an accessory Her Majesty wouldn't be seen wearing!

But now it has been revealed there is a very important reason behind the 92-year-old's new look.

The British monarch Queen Elizabeth II has recently undergone cataract surgery to clear her blurry vision.

"I can confirm that The Queen successfully underwent a short, planned procedure to treat a cataract," a Buckingham Palace representative said.

While it's not known when the procedure took place, we hope Her Majesty is on the mend now!
