Buckingham Palace: Queen Elizabeth should “rest for at least the next two weeks”

| Top stories | abc News

“Following their recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised her to continue resting for at least the next two weeks,” the palace said in a statement. “Doctors have indicated that Her Majesty may continue to undertake light and clerical duties during this period, including some virtual hearings, but not make any official visits.”

The palace said Her Majesty “regrets” not being able to attend the festival of remembrance on November 13, but plans to attend the national remembrance service the next day. She still attends the annual National Service of Remembrance, alongside other members of the Royal Family, to pay tribute to fallen British and Commonwealth servicemen.

Queen Elizabeth originally planned to visit Northern Ireland last Wednesday and Thursday. However, the palace canceled those plans at the last minute and said at the time that the Queen had “reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days.”

“Following medical advice to rest for a few days, the Queen went to the hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some preliminary investigations, returning to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today, and remains of good humor, ”said a spokesperson at the time.

The monarch returned to work albeit virtually on Tuesday and took part in her first planned engagements since hosting a reception for the World Investment Summit at Windsor Castle on October 19.

But later that day, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen would not be attending a reception for the United Nations climate change conference, called COP26, in Glasgow on November 1. The palace said it would pre-record a video message for attendees instead. .
