Queen Elizabeth II is taking a bit of a break. The 95-year-old British monarch has had a busy schedule lately, and at the recommendation of her doctor has decided to skip a planned trip to Northern Ireland.
"The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days," a spokesman for Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Wednesday. "Her Majesty is in good spirits and is disappointed that she will no longer be able to visit Northern Ireland, where she had been due to undertake a series of engagements today and tomorrow."
The queen gave her "warmest good wishes" to the people of Northern Ireland and expressed a desire to visit in the future.
A source tells ET that the decision to rest is not COVID-related, though the queen's condition is not currently being shared.
"She has had a packed schedule recently," the source says. "She is resting at Windsor castle on doctors' advice but in good spirits."
It has been a busy few days for the reigning monarch, who was recently photographed using a cane to walk. She invested Dame Cindy Kiro as the new Governor General of New Zealand via Zoom and hosted a reception at Windsor Castle on Tuesday evening to mark the Global Investment Summit with Prince Charles and Prince William by her side.
