Queen Elizabeth has accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days and has cancelled a planned visit to Northern Ireland, Buckingham Palace says.
The 95-year-old has reigned for almost seven decades.
“The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days,” the Palace said on Wednesday.
“Her Majesty 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.”
