Queen Elizabeth II decided to postpone a meeting with senior government officials on Wednesday after experiencing a full day of activity the day before.

On Tuesday, the Queen spent the day at her summer residence in Scotland appointing the UK’s new Prime Minister, Liz Truss. The 96-year-old Queen oversaw an entire day of activities, involving the symbolic transfer of power to Truss.

After the big day, the Queen’s doctor advised her to rest and rest, and the Queen listened.

“After a busy day yesterday, Her Majesty this afternoon accepted the advice of doctors to rest,” the palace said in a statement. “This means that the Privy Council meeting that was supposed to take place this evening will be rearranged.”

LIZ TRUSS BECOMES UK PRIME MINISTER, BORIS JOHNSON SUBMITS HIS RESIGNATION TO QUEEN ELIZABETH

At this meeting of the Privy Council, Truss could have been sworn in as First Lord of the Treasury and the new members of his Cabinet would have been sworn in. The reunion hasn’t been canceled forever, however, and has just been temporarily postponed until the Queen feels more up to it.

Although this latest setback does not necessitate the Queen’s hospitalization, it could worry her admirers, as it is not the first time in recent history that she has postponed or chosen not to attend certain events.

The Queen has had bouts of mobility issues and has been walking with a cane since October 2021. In November 2021, the monarch decided not to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony as she suffered from a sprained back.

In early 2022, the Palace announced that the Queen had contracted COVID-19, stating: “Her Majesty is experiencing mild symptoms of a cold but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week.”

While the Queen was able to attend three events celebrating her platinum jubilee, she was notably absent from many of the celebration’s events.

The Queen took a step back from many of her royal duties and instead entrusted her son and future king, Prince Charles, with more responsibility. Her grandson Prince William has also taken on more responsibility and made appearances as a senior royal.

The Queen officially became the longest reigning British monarch in England in 2015 when she overtook the reign of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, and continues to break that record to this day. She has now been on the throne for 70 years and holds the record for the second longest reigning monarch in the world, second only to French King Louis XIV who reigned for 72 years.
