Queen Elizabeth II ordered to rest after hospital treatment

Buckingham Palace said Friday that Queen Elizabeth II is under doctors’ orders to rest for at least another two weeks, as she recovers from the recent health scare that left her in hospital.

The 95-year-old Queen of the United Kingdom has been told she “must continue to rest” over an unspecified health issue, which the palace only said had nothing to do with COVID-19.

“Doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to carry out light office tasks during this time, including some virtual audiences,” the palace said of the Queen, who appeared in good spirits while attending virtual audiences Tuesday at Windsor Castle. .

The palace said she had been told “not to make any official visits.”

“Her Majesty the Queen regrets that this means that she will not be able to attend the remembrance festival,” the palace said of the November 13 event at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

“Nevertheless, it remains the Queen’s firm intention to be present at the National Service to Commemorate Sunday,” the palace said of the ceremony honoring the war heroes on November 14.

The Queen’s health panic first surfaced on Wednesday last week when she “reluctantly” canceled a trip to mark the 100th anniversary of the creation of Northern Ireland.

The palace later admitted that she had spent that night at King Edward VII Hospital in London for “preliminary investigations”, without further details of the cause for concern.

A palace source told Reuters that more rest was a “reasonable precaution” and that the king was still in good spirits.

Her Majesty is the longest-reigning monarch in the world, and she assumed the throne for 69 years after the death of her father in 1952.
