Queen, 95, cancels Northern Ireland trip on medical advice to rest for few days but is in 'good spirits', Palace says

THE Queen has cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland and has "reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days", Buckingham Palace said.

Her Majesty, 95, is said to be in "good spirits" but is disappointed not to be able to carry out the two-day trip, which was due to begin on Wednesday.

The monarch has had a busy few days and hosted a major Global Investment summit at Windsor Castle on Tuesday evening.

She was pictured smiling with international business and investment leaders, including Boris Johnson and Bill Gates.

And she was due to undertake "a number of engagements" in Northern Ireland today.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: "The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days.

"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 sends her warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland, and looks forward to visiting in the future."

The monarch, who is resting at Windsor Castle, is still expected at this stage to attend events linked to the Cop26 climate change conference in Glasgow at the end of the month.

Her decision to rest is understood not to be related to coronavirus.

It comes after the Queen was pictured carrying a walking stick for comfort to an event last week.
