British Queen Elizabeth advised by doctors To rest and avoid official visits for at least two weeksBritish Prime Minister Boris Johnson said after speaking with the 95-year-old British monarch this week.
There has been concern for the health of Elizabeth, the world’s oldest and longest-reigning monarch, after she canceled a series of planned trips and spent a night in hospital due to an unspecified illness, albeit unrelated to Covid-19. FHello, first night in years.
“I’ve spoken with Her Majesty, and she is doing very well,” Johnson – who speaks to the Queen every Wednesday for an update – told Channel 4 news on Saturday.
“She just has to follow her doctors’ advice and get some rest, and I think that’s what’s important. I think the whole country wants her well.”
Elizabeth, the queen of 15 other countries including Australia, Canada and New Zealand, has been resting at her home at Windsor Castle since spending the night in hospital ten days ago after she was subjected to ‘initial investigations’.
The Queen, who is known for her strong health and who regularly performs official public functions despite her age, had already canceled a visit to Northern Ireland as well as her participation in the upcoming Summit on Climate Change (COP26) in Glasgow, next week. She had planned to address world leaders personally at the event.
Buckingham Palace said on November 13 she would not attend any major event at the Royal Albert Hall, which is hosted by a British military charity, but had “strongly intended” to attend on November 14. November, at the main National Veterans Memorial Ceremony, an event of great significance to her.
A palace source said the Queen remained in a good mood and recorded a video address for COP26 delegates. The source added that the additional remainder is a “reasonable precautionary measure.”
Since the Queen advised her to rest, she appeared happy and happy in the footage released by the palace when she participated, via video, in various virtual events.
