the essential Elizabeth II, Queen of England, spent a night in the hospital to undergo examinations. His doctors recommended that he rest for a few days. The 95 year-old sovereign has been walking with a cane for several weeks.
“Following medical advice recommending her to rest for a few days, the Queen went to hospital on Wednesday afternoon for preliminary examinations and returned to Windsor Castle at lunchtime.” Thursday, the palace wrote in a brief statement. She “keeps good morale,” he added.
On Wednesday, the sovereign, who is preparing to celebrate in 2022 her 19 years of reign, had canceled a visit to Northern Ireland after “reluctantly accepting” his doctors’ advice to rest.

After having spent successive confinements at Windsor Castle near London and despite speculation about a withdrawal after the death in April of her husband Philip, Elizabeth II has recently participated in many public engagements. She appeared again on Tuesday at a reception in Windsor, attended by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, businessman Bill Gates or US climate envoy John Kerry. Visibly in good shape, she shook hands without gloves and spoke standing with the guests, without a protective mask.
Last week she was seen walking in public with a cane, the first since 2004.
