Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II was forced to cancel her participation in a virtual meeting of the Privy Council on Wednesday evening for health reasons.
New concerns for the Queen: As Buckingham Palace announced, the 96-year-old Queen has been described as resting by her doctors. The Palestinian News Agency, quoting the palace departments, stated that no hospital stay was planned.
Johnson and gears received
The Queen is currently staying at her country home, Balmoral Castle in Scotland, where on Tuesday she received Boris Johnson, who tendered his resignation as prime minister. Immediately afterwards, she listened to his successor, Liz Truss, and asked her to form a government.
Lots of hustle and bustle
The hustle and bustle seemed to be too much for the increasingly weak Queen. “After a busy day yesterday, Her Majesty the Queen accepted the advice of her doctors this afternoon to rest,” a palace spokesman said.
The session will be rescheduled
Truss was to be sworn in as First Lord of the Treasury at a meeting of the Privy Council. In addition, some of her newly appointed cabinet colleagues were to be included in the advisory body, which at present serves mainly ceremonial purposes. The palace said that the date of the meeting will be rescheduled at a later time.
