Queen advised to rest for the next two weeks

The Queen had been advised by doctors to rest for two weeks, Buckingham Palace announced on Friday evening (October 29).

It comes after she underwent tests in hospital last week and canceled a two-day trip to Northern Ireland.

But the head of state has “firm intent” to lead the nation in honoring the country’s war dead on Memorial Sunday, November 14th.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said Her Majesty had been advised by doctors to rest but could take on some light tasks, including virtual audiences.

The statement read: “Following her recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have recommended that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks.

“Doctors have indicated that Her Majesty may continue to perform light desk duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but no official visits. Her Majesty regrets that this will prevent her from attending the Feast of Remembrance on Saturday, November 13th.

“However, it remains the Queen’s firm intention to attend the National Memorial Service on Memorial Sunday, November 14th.”

The queen is believed to remain in a good mood and medical advice is considered a sensible precaution.
