Queen Elizabeth will have a rest in the next few days, on the advice of her doctors. The 95-year-old queen was supposed to visit Northern Ireland today and tomorrow, but that‘s not going on.
“The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice that she should keep rest in the coming days,” Buckingham Palace explains.
According to the spokesperson, the British head of state is well and is disappointed that her visit to Northern Ireland cannot continue. “She greets the people of Northern Ireland and looks forward to visiting later.”
Yesterday, the Monarch was still present at a reception at Windsor Castle in honor of the Global Investment Summit. She spoke to British Prime Minister Johnson, among others.
Few notices are made about the Queen’s health. It is known that she has been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Last Tuesday she was spotted with a cane for the first time in years, visiting Westminster Abbey. One of the last times she used a walking stick in public before that was in 2003, which was because she recovered from knee surgery.
“Oldie of the Year”
The Queen refused to receive an award this month as ‘Oldie of the Year’, a fun prize awarded annually.
“The Queen thinks you are as old as you feel and therefore does not think she meets the conditions,” one of her assistants said.
