Queen elizabeth ii reluctantly canceled a trip to Northern Ireland at the request of medical experts who wanted her to rest for a few days.
Buckingham Palace did not give details of the decision, but said the 95-year-old monarch was “in good spirits” and disappointed that she could no longer travel to Northern Ireland for engagements on Wednesday and Thursday.
“The Queen sends her warmest wishes to the people of Northern Ireland and look forward to visiting in the future,” the palace said.
Instead of the trip, Queen Elizabeth II will rest at Windsor Castle, where she has been staying since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic last year in excess of caution for its safety.
The decision comes just days after Elizabeth saw her using a cane at a major public event while attending a Westminster Abbey service marking the centenary of the Royal British Legion, an armed forces charity.
She had previously been photographed using a cane in 2003, but that was after undergoing knee surgery.
