Queen cancels Northern Ireland trip after being told by doctors to rest


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