Queen Elizabeth II has to take a break on the advice of her doctors. Only on Tuesday did the 96-year-old monarch appoint Liz Truss as the new prime minister, and now she is postponing a meeting of her advisory board.
On the advice of her doctors, Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has postponed a meeting of her advisory body, the Privy Council. "After a busy day yesterday, Her Majesty took the doctors' advice this afternoon to rest," Buckingham Palace said. A hospital stay is not planned, the PA news agency reported, citing palace circles. The day before, the Queen had appointed Liz Truss as the new British Prime Minister. According to the palace, the 96-year-old monarch has been suffering from "mobility problems" since last year, which has caused her to cancel several public appearances.
The Queen is increasingly being represented by her son, Prince Charles, at important official appointments. He replaced her for the first time at the opening of Parliament in May and read out the government's program for the coming session in her place.
During the four-day celebrations in June for her 70th jubilee, the Queen only showed her tens of thousands of followers twice briefly on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. In all public appearances, however, she was always smiling and in a good mood.
