- Since she missed a Remembrance Sunday event, Queen Elizabeth’s health has been questioned.
Queen Elizabeth, whose health has been questioned since she missed a Remembrance Sunday ceremony, was photographed standing and smiling on Wednesday at her first public appearance since spending the night in hospital.
Last month, the monarch spent the first time in years in a hospital for “preliminary studies” into an unidentified ailment, and physicians have advised her to cancel most of her engagements since then.
She was forced to withdraw from Sunday’s Remembrance Day event at the Cenotaph war memorial in central London due to a sprained back, which a Buckingham Palace source said was unrelated to the ailment that required rest and was an unfortunate coincidence.
On Wednesday, she was back at work at her Windsor Castle home, where she was spotted conversing with Nick Carter, Britain’s professional head of the armed forces.
He is set to leave the position at the end of November.
Since being told to rest, the Queen, the world’s oldest and longest-reigning monarch, has cancelled several high-profile events, including the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow earlier this month.
Her last public appearance was on Oct. 19, when she held a cocktail reception for rich business leaders at Windsor.
