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

On Tuesday, the Queen spent the day at her summer residence in Scotland to appoint the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Liz Truss. The 96-year-old queen oversaw a full day of activities, including the symbolic transfer of power to Truss.

After the big day, the queen’s doctor advised her to take it easy and rest, and the queen listened.

“After a full day yesterday, Her Majesty has accepted the advice of doctors to rest this afternoon,” the palace said in a statement. “This means the Privy Council meeting that was supposed to take place tonight has been rescheduled.”

At this Privy Council meeting, Truss would have been able to take her oath as First Lord of the Treasury and her new cabinet members would have been sworn in. However, the meeting was not canceled forever and has only been temporarily postponed until the Queen feels more ready.

While this most recent setback doesn’t require the Queen to be hospitalized, it may cause some concern for her admirers, as this isn’t the first time in recent history that she’s postponed certain events or chose not to attend. .

The Queen suffers from mobility problems and has been walking with a cane since October 2021. In November 2021, the Queen decided not to attend Remembrance Day because 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 cold symptoms, but expects to continue light duties in Windsor over the next week.”

Although the Queen was able to attend three events to celebrate her platinum anniversary, she was noticeably absent from many of the celebration’s events.

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