The Queen has cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland and has “reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days”, Buckingham Palace said. The 95-year-old monarch is said to be in good spirits but disappointed not to be able to carry out the two-day trip, which was due to begin on Wednesday. Royal expert Angela Levin has dismissed fears that the monarch could be ill and insisted that she “blossoms” with a busy schedule.

Asked if the Queen is in “good health”, Ms Levin told GB News: “I don’t know, I’m sure they wouldn’t tell us until it got quite bad.

“She does look haunched, doesn’t she? She looks as though she’s bending over a lot more.

“She is a bit wobbly on her legs and we know it’s not drink because she’s given up alcohol.

“She’s very strong, she’s stoic. If she’s got lots to do she blossoms.

“It’s a good lesson to us all. She takes a lot on board. She’s still riding her horse, I think.

“That’s a positive way of living, there’s a lot you can take from her.

“She won’t let bad things get her down.”

The Queen has had a busy few days and hosted a major Global Investment summit at Windsor Castle on Tuesday evening.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days.

“Her Majesty is in good spirits and is disappointed that she will no longer be able to visit Northern Ireland, where she had been due to undertake a series of engagements today and tomorrow.

“The Queen sends her warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland and looks forward to visiting in the future.”

The Queen’s decision is understood not to be related to coronavirus.

At the weekend, she enjoyed a day at the races at Ascot, and on Monday held a virtual audience with the new Governor-General of New Zealand.

The Queen’s husband of 73 years the Duke of Edinburgh died in April at the age of 99.

The monarch has been pictured out and about at the Royal Windsor Horse Show and Ascot in the months since, and still enjoys riding her own ponies.

Last week, she used a walking stick for what is believed to be the first time at a major public event when she attended a service marking the centenary of the Royal British Legion.
