Queen Elizabeth II ‘advised to rest’ on medical grounds

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II has canceled a planned trip to Northern Ireland on medical grounds, Buckingham Palace says.

Royal officials say in a statement that the 95-year-old monarch “has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days.”

Britain’s domestic Press Association news agency says the decision is understood not to be related to coronavirus and that she is resting at Windsor Castle, west of London.

She is also expected to attend events at the upcoming UN climate change summit in Glasgow next month, it adds.
