The Buckingham Palace revealed how the 95-year-old is permitted to take on light, desk-based duties, including holding virtual audiences, following an overnight stay at a hospital on October 20.

In addition to using a walking cane to get around last month, the Queen has also reportedly been given doctor’s orders recently to give up horse riding and martinis.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke with Channel 4 News in Rome on Saturday, telling the outlet, “I spoke to Her Majesty and she’s on very good form,” per Reuters and The Guardian.

“She’s just got to follow the advice of her doctors and get some rest and I think that’s the important thing. I think the whole country wishes her well.”

This means she will be unable to travel to the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday, Nov. 13.

“However, it remains The Queen’s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on 14th November,” the palace said.

The decision comes after Elizabeth canceled her planned appearance at the U.N. climate conference in Glasgow. The climate conference runs from Oct. 31 to Nov. 12.

The news also comes after The Queen held virtual audiences Tuesday at Windsor Castle, greeting ambassadors from South Korea and Switzerland since she was driven to London’s King Edward VII’s Hospital on Oct. 20 for “preliminary investigations.”

She returned to her Windsor Castle home at lunchtime the next day and has been taking on light duties since.

The queen underwent the medical tests after she canceled a scheduled trip to mark 100 years since the creation of Northern Ireland, and the palace said she had “reluctantly” accepted advice to rest for a few days.

Earlier in the month, the Queen broke her silence on Prince Phillip‘s death. She recalled how much love both she and her late husband shared for Scotland in her address at the opening ceremony for the sixth session of the Scottish Parliament this past month.

“I have spoken before of my deep and abiding affection for this wonderful country, and of the many happy memories Prince Philip and I always held of our time here,” the Queen stated.
