The 95-year-old, who spent a night in hospital last month, was forced to extend the period of rest advised by doctors, forcing her to cancel her participation, today (Saturday), in the remembrance festival dedicated to honoring British and Commonwealth soldiers.
Buckingham Palace said, in a statement, that the Queen, who expressed her “firm desire” to do so two weeks ago, will attend Sunday’s ceremony at the memorial in London, explaining that she “will attend, as in previous years” the ceremony “from the balcony of the building” of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “Based on the last advice of her doctors, the Queen has decided not to attend the general (Synod) of the Church of England, which takes place on Tuesday 16 November,” the statement continued.
Queen Elizabeth II has been resting since October 20, the day after a reception at Windsor Castle, where she appeared while speaking with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and American businessman Bill Gates. She spent the next night in the hospital, for the first time since 2013, for “initial examinations”, which did not reveal any details about her. In particular, Elizabeth II had to cancel her trip to Glasgow to attend the United Nations climate conference (COP26), which ends Friday. Buckingham Palace’s delay in revealing the Queen’s admission to hospital has raised questions about her health and accusations of lack of transparency.
The Queen was recently seen driving in her car at Windsor Castle, about forty kilometers from London, where she now resides. Elizabeth II, whose husband Prince Philip died in April at the age of 99, was finally seen walking, leaning on a cane, for the first time since 2004.
