Reports of the unhealthy queen worry the world. A visit to the hospital, followed by a multitude of cancellations of official engagements, are speculating the royalists everywhere. Now it seems that on top of that the Queen was advised almost two months ago to give up one of her favorite pursuits, horseback riding.
The 95-year-old monarch – who was hospitalized overnight last week – is an avid horseback rider, but was advised to take a break from her pursuit in early September after suffering “discomfort” in the saddle , and we think it has not gone up. since his summer vacation at his Balmoral estate in Scotland.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “She was a little uncomfortable. She loves to ride horses and it has been part of her ritual for most of her life.
“She has been extremely disappointed not to be riding since the beginning of September.”
But the Queen, who is currently on “light homework” and can’t even walk her beloved dogs, is hoping she can ride again after taking time to rest and recuperate.
The world’s oldest and oldest head of state recently announced that she would not attend the COP26 climate change summit in Glasgow after being advised by her doctors to rest.
The monarch was due to attend the high-profile event in Scotland, but canceled her initial plans after undergoing preliminary medical checks and will instead address delegates “via recorded video message”.
Buckingham Palace said in a statement: “Following the rest advice, the Queen has undertaken light duties at Windsor Castle.
“His Majesty has unfortunately decided not to travel to Glasgow to attend the reception of the COP26 on Monday November 1st.
“Her Majesty is disappointed not to attend the reception but will deliver remarks to the assembled delegates via a recorded video message.”
Last week, Buckingham Palace confirmed the Queen had gone to hospital for “preliminary inquiries”, and she stayed the night before being sent home in Windsor.
A spokesperson said at the time: “Following medical advice to rest for a few days, the Queen went to hospital on Wednesday afternoon for preliminary inquiries, returning to Windsor Castle in the lunchtime today, and stay in a good mood. “
It is believed that the overnight stay was for practical reasons, and the monarch was back at his office Thursday afternoon and performing light duties.
