United Kingdom: after being put to rest, Queen Elizabeth II resumes her commitments

the essential After being put to rest by her doctors, Queen Elizabeth II, 95 years, had spent Wednesday night 20 October to Thursday at the hospital. This Tuesday, the sovereign resumed her commitments and gave virtual audiences.

This Tuesday 26 October, British Queen Elizabeth II gave virtual audiences to new ambassadors to the UK, her first official engagements since being put to rest by her doctors and spent a night in the hospital last week.

The 95-year-old sovereign gave these audiences by video conference, from Windsor Castle, on the outskirts of London, now her principal place of residence, to receive the credentials of the Korean ambassadors of South, Gunn Kim, and Swiss, Markus Leitner, according to Buckingham Palace. The queen appeared smiling and wearing a yellow dress.

It was her first public appearance since 19 October and especially since she canceled a visit to Northern Ireland the next day after her doctors advised her to rest . The queen then spent the night from Wednesday to Thursday at the hospital, officially for “preliminary” examinations. The fact that Buckingham Palace only belatedly revealed this hospitalization, its first since 2013, had raised questions. The sovereign is expected for the UN climate conference of the COP 26 early next week in Glasgow, Scotland.
