However, the world’s oldest and longest-serving monarch is determined to appear at the annual Remembrance Sunday service commemorating the nation’s war dead in central London on November 14, the palace said.
Elizabeth, who is the queen of 15 other kingdoms including Australia, Canada and New Zealand, has been resting in her Windsor Castle since she spent the night in the hospital last week after undergoing “preliminary investigation” for an unspecified ailment that it is not related to COVID -19.
The monarch had already retired from speaking in person to world leaders next week at the COP26 climate change summit in Glasgow.
And he endured two difficult years. In April her husband of over seventy years, Prince Philip, died at the age of 99, while in 2020 his nephew Harry and his wife Meghan retired from royal duties and moved to the United States.
Her second son, Prince Andrew, also left royal duties due to his ties to US financier Jeffrey Epstein, a registered sex offender who committed suicide in a Manhattan jail in 2019.
Following the latest advice, Elizabeth will no longer attend a major event on November 13 at the Royal Albert Hall hosted by a British military charity. But the queen had a “firm intention” to be present at the main national veteran commemoration service on Sunday, Nov. 14, the palace said.
Medical orders: Queen Elizabeth II cancels travel plans
A palace source said the queen remained in a good mood and recorded a video speech for COP26 delegates on Friday. Further rest was a “sensitive precaution,” the source added.
However, the news is likely to raise health concerns for the queen, who is expected to celebrate 70 years on the throne next year. The Daily Telegraph described the advice for another two weeks off as the most significant absence of the queen’s long reign.
Assistants did not provide any details on what prompted medical care last week, following the cancellation of a visit to Northern Ireland.
The queen has since appeared in good spirits in the palace video on Thursday, when she took part in a ceremony to award a medal for poetry.

Prior to this time, the queen was known for her robust health and still performs many public duties.
The night before he had to go to the hospital, he hosted a drink at Windsor Castle for billionaire business leaders, including Bill Gates, who were attending a conference on green investments before COP26.
