Buckingham Palace: Queen Elizabeth should ‘rest for at least the next two weeks.
“Following her recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised her that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks,” the palace said in a statement. “Doctors have reported that Her Majesty may continue to perform light desk tasks during this time, including some virtual hearings, but not make official visits.”
The palace said His Majesty “regrets” not being able to attend the Festival of Remembrance on November 13, but that he plans to go to the National Remembrance Service the next day.

“On medical advice to rest for a few days, the Queen went to the hospital on Wednesday afternoon to do some preliminary investigations, returned to Windsor Castle today at lunchtime and remains in good spirits,” said a spokesman at that time. moment.
The monarch returned to work, albeit virtually, on Tuesday and participated in her first scheduled engagements since hosting a reception for the Global Investment Summit at Windsor Castle on October 19.
But later that day, Buckingham Palace announced that the queen would not attend a reception for the United Nations conference on climate change, called COP26, in Glasgow on November 1.
The palace said it would pre-record a video message for attendees instead.
