Queen Elizabeth II’s cancellation of appointments at short notice has caused concern among her compatriots. The monarch’s doctors are also concerned about her health. You have suggested a rest for the Queen.
Balmoral – For decades, Queen Elizabeth II (96) has been drawn north in the summer. The regent spends her traditional summer break at Balmoral Castle, which was even the scene of a royal premiere this year. For the first time, the Queen welcomed Britain’s new head of government in Scotland – a meeting that left its mark on the 96-year-old.
Council meeting will be rescheduled: Queen Elizabeth II must recover
With a big smile on her lips, Queen Elizabeth II received Prime Minister Liz Truss (47) for the traditional “kissing the hands” ceremony that sealed the change of power. The successor to Boris Johnson (58) had traveled to Aberdeenshire and thus saved the monarch a long and arduous journey to London.
In recent months, the Queen has repeatedly struggled with mobility problems, and she also had to rely on her walking stick for her appointment with Truss. A meeting with the British Privy Council was supposed to follow just one day after the Prime Minister’s royal appointment, but the virtual meeting had to be postponed. “Her Majesty took the doctors’ advice this afternoon to rest,” the palace announced on Wednesday evening (September 8).
One appointment cancellation after the other: concerns about Queen Elizabeth II do not stop
The royal family did not want to provide any further information on the health of the queen. According to the doctors, a hospital stay is not necessary, reports “PA Media”. The regent had already canceled the public welcoming ceremony at Balmoral Castle in August, and she also canceled her participation in the Braemar Gathering Highland Games on September 3rd.
Queen Elizabeth II will probably stay in Scotland until the beginning of October, so she will miss the visit of grandson Harry (37) and his wife Meghan (41) to England. Other members of the royal family also seem to have to do without a reunion. Harry and Meghan’s Frogmore Cottage in Windsor and William (40) and Kate’s (40) new home are only a short distance apart, but the two couples should avoid each other.
