It is unclear why she was given medical advice to rest, instead, and whether the advice will affect her attendance at events surrounding the COP26 climate crisis conference, which launches later this month.

According to the British newspaper The Guardian, the queen is resting at Windsor Castle, where she hosted business leaders and politicians, including Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on Tuesday evening after the government’s investment summit.

It has been nearly seven months since the death of Prince Philip, who was married to the queen for more than 70 years.

His passing came as the royal family confronted fresh challenges, including intense publicity around the departures of Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, from their royal duties.
