THE Queen, 95, is “being forced to work too hard” and has been ordered to rest by doctors after she completed 13 engagements in the past three weeks.
Her Majesty was set to visit Hillsborough in County Down, Northern Ireland where she was scheduled to meet with locals and schoolkids after the village was officially named Royal Hillsborough.
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.
“The Queen sends her warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland, and looks forward to visiting in the future.”
Royal sources have assured there is no cause for concern, and stressed that the decision was made purely as a ‘precautionary’ measure.
There was no suggestion that the Queen had fallen ill and it was understood that her decision was not linked to Covid.
