Queen cancels trip after ‘reluctantly accepting medical advice’
Buckingham Palace says Queen Elizabeth II has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for a few days and has cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland.

The palace did not offer specifics on the decision.

It said the 95-year-old monarch 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 palace added that she “sends her warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland, and looks forward to visiting in the future”.

CNN reports that a source close to the palace has said the medical issue is “not COVID related”.

The decision comes just days after the Queen was seen using a walking stick at a major public event when attending a Westminster Abbey service marking the centenary of the Royal British Legion, an armed forces charity.

She had previously been photographed using a cane in 2003, but that was after she underwent knee surgery.

The queen, whose husband Prince Philip died earlier this year, still keeps a busy schedule of royal duties.

On Tuesday, she held audiences with diplomats and hosted a reception at Windsor Castle for global business leaders.
