Queen Elizabeth urged by doctors to rest at least 2 weeks

The advice from her medical team has heightened the worry about the health of the 95-year-old monarch

Queen Elizabeth II has been advised by her doctors to rest for at least the next two weeks, Buckingham Palace said on Friday, deepening the anxieties about her health that began last week when she abruptly canceled a visit to Northern Ireland because of what aides at the palace described as fatigue.

While the palace said the queen would continue to carry out “light, desk-based duties” and could conduct meetings via Zoom, she will not take part in any official events or ceremonies, including the Festival of Remembrance, a gala scheduled for Nov. 13 that honors soldiers and civilians who sacrificed for Britain in wartime.

For the queen, 95, to cancel her participation in an event two weeks in advance attests to the extraordinary precautions her medical team is taking. It also suggests that she has not bounced back from last week’s health issue, even after withdrawing to Windsor Castle and canceling her Northern Ireland visit, as well as one to the United Nations climate conference that opens in Glasgow next week.

In a statement, the palace said, “Following on from their recent advice that the queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks.”
