Britain’s monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, has been advised by doctors to rest for at least two weeks and refrain from making official engagements.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by Buckingham Palace on Friday, October 29.
The statement comes a week after the 95-year-old spent a night in the hospital for “preliminary investigations,” according to a spokeswoman at the time.
"Her Majesty’s doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks.
"The doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not to undertake any official visits,” the palace said in its statement Friday.
"Her Majesty regrets that this means she will be unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday, 13th November.
"However, it remains The Queen’s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance-on-Remembrance Sunday, on 14th November."
