Queen 'on very good form' but canceling appearances, trips to rest

Queen Elizabeth II is “on very good form” after her brief hospitalization 10 days ago and plans to attend a memorial next month for vets who served in both World Wars.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson,Johnson told the BBC that he spoke with the 95-year-old monarch after she was told to rest for at least another two weeks following her health scare.

“I spoke to her majesty and she’s on very good form,” said Johnson, who speaks to the Queen every Wednesday for a weekly update. “She’s just got to follow the advice of her doctors and get some rest and I think that’s the important thing. I think the whole country wishes her well.”

The Queen’s illness, which the BBC attributed to fatigue,” confined her to “light desk duties,” and forced her to pull out of her planned appearance at this weekend’s 26th U.N. Climate Change Conference, known as COP26, in Glasgow.

She recorded a speech for the summit Friday. Prince Charles and Prince William will host a reception for the world leaders attending the summit, including President Joe Biden, in her place.

She had to cancel planned visits to Northern Ireland and the Nov. 13 Royal British Legion’s Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, as well.

But Buckingham Palace said it is her “firm intention” to attend Remembrance Sunday services on Nov. 14, held to honor the vets of World War I and II.

A palace source told the BBC on Friday that the Queen’s medical team were taking “sensible precautions” and that she remained in “good spirits.”
