Queen Elizabeth II is advised by her doctors to take a break. 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 has followed 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 struggling with “mobility problems” since last year, causing her to cancel several public appearances.
The Queen currently resides in her remote Scottish summer residence at Balmoral Castle. Contrary to tradition, the appointment of the new British Prime Minister did not take place at Buckingham Palace in London. Liz Truss flew from London to Balmoral, 800 kilometers away, for the ceremony. The monarch had previously accepted the resignation of outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The Queen is increasingly represented by her son, Prince Charles, in important official appointments. He first replaced her at the opening of parliament in May and read in her place the government program for the next session.
During the four-day celebration in June for her 70th anniversary, the Queen briefly showed her tens of thousands of followers on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. However, in all public appearances she was always smiling and in a good mood.
