Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is planning to rest at Windsor Castle in the run up to the end of 2021, carrying out only light duties for the rest of the year.
On Sunday, the Queen – who is believed to have suffered a sprained back – missed the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.
She has also cancelled an appearance at the General Synod on Tuesday, marking the first time she will have missed her five-yearly visit to the Church’s national assembly in its 51-year history.
While she is set to refrain from any major real-life appearances in the coming weeks, the Queen is scheduled to carry out virtual audiences later this week.
It comes after the Queen was told to rest by the doctor after being admitted to hospital for preliminary investigations on 20 October, marking her first overnight stay in a medical facility in eight years.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Sunday evening he had seen the queen last week and wanted to reassure the nation that she was well.
