Queen Elizabeth II has been instructed to rest for at least the next two weeks according to her doctor.
The Buckingham Palace revealed today that the 95-year-old is allowed to take on light, desk-based duties, including holding virtual audiences.
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.
“It is often said that it is the people that make a place, and there are few places where this is truer than in Scotland, as we have seen in recent times.”
A short sentiment but sweet nonetheless. Reportedly, Prince Philip‘s will is to set to remain a secret for at least 90 years to protect the “dignity and standing” of the Queen, the High Court has ruled.
It is common that when a senior member of the Royal Family passes, the courts are asked to seal their wills. There will be a private process in 90 years to decide if it can be unsealed.
