Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom drove to Windsor Castle on her own, and after being unable to attend the COP26 summit, she dispelled speculation about her health.
Out of health concerns, Queen Elizabeth II drove a blue Jaguar at Windsor Castle today. This is also the first time Queen Elizabeth has appeared outside the castle since she was admitted to the hospital for preliminary examination last month.
The 95-year-old Queen went to the King Edward VII Hospital in London for a preliminary examination on October 20, and then stayed overnight before returning to Windsor Castle at noon the next day. This is her first hospitalization since 2013. The Queen canceled her plan to participate in the UN Climate Conference COP26, which opened on October 31. This is a rare move for someone who is tireless and always passionate about environmental protection.
Buckingham Palace stated that Queen Elizabeth II was disappointed in not being able to attend the meeting, but made this decision after she was advised to take a break.
According to doctors, Queen Elizabeth II, who will celebrate her 70th birthday next year, can continue to work lightly at her desk. She will also participate in some online conferences, but will not take any trips.
An anonymous source with knowledge of the situation said that after Prince Philip’s death in April, the queen tried to keep herself busy “very tired.” In an event on October 12, the queen caused a sensation. When someone saw her walking, this was the first time she used a cane since 2004. British media reported that the Queen has recently stopped walking her dog and riding horses.
The Queen of England is considered to be in good health and often drives her own car. The last known illness of the Queen was in 2013, when she was hospitalized due to stomach problems, but only for a short period of time.
