The Queen has cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland today and has ‘reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days’, Buckingham Palace has said.
A Palace spokesman said today: ‘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.
Her Majesty has had a busy schedule of engagements in recent weeks including attending the opening of the Welsh Parliament and last night’s Windsor Castle reception for delegates of the Global Investment Conference.
She is also due to attend COP26 in Glasgow next month.
