“I have spoken to Her Majesty and she is doing very well,” Johnson said. “She just needs to follow the advice of her doctors and get some rest, I think that is the most important thing. I think the whole country is wishing her well.”
Buckingham Palace announced on Friday that Elizabeth must rest for two weeks longer than previously announced. The Queen was suddenly hospitalized on October 20 as a precaution and for an “initial examination”. A visit to Northern Ireland was canceled at the last minute. But the next day she returned to her home at Windsor Castle and took on “light duty”. She may continue to perform these on her desk, according to British media.
Earlier it was also announced that Elizabeth was no longer allowed to drink alcohol. She had to cut a bedtime cocktail, usually a martini, from her schedule. She was also just seen carrying a walking stick for the first time in seventeen years, and it became known that from now on she would always be helped by a family member during official obligations. Elizabeth also canceled a visit to Northern Ireland at the last minute, because she had to take a break. Nor was she present at this week’s climate summit.
