Queen Elizabeth II of England spent Wednesday night admitted to a London hospital for a medical examination, Buckingham Palace announced on Thursday. The 95-year-old monarch, a recent widow, returned to Windsor Castle “in good condition” for lunch, according to the palace.
The medical stay has forced her to cancel a planned visit to Northern Ireland, which has left her “disappointed”, according to the note. Northern Ireland is the subject of controversy between the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland over the Brexit agreement.
Doctors had already advised the queen to rest for a few days after a period of several official commitments and this Wednesday they chose to admit her to perform some tests at the King Edward VII hospital in London, about 20 miles from Windsor Castle. His stay, according to the BBC, is not related to the coronavirus.
The queen had been chairing the Global Investment Summit reception in Windsor last Tuesday with Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Isabel II had just refused to be distinguished as “Old Woman of the Year” because she affirms that she does not “It does not believe that it meets the relevant criteria to be able to accept it.”
Elizabeth II, born on April 21, 1926, is the longest-lived sovereign in British history and next year he will celebrate his Platinum Jubilee, with which he will celebrate his 70 years on the throne exercising his activity and maintaining his schedule of commitments and visits.
