Default the queen advised to take a further 2 weeks rest with no official visits

The Queen has "reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days" and will not be travelling to Northern Ireland today, Buckingham Palace has said.
"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 palace statement added.
"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.

See this added part makes me think it is certainly related to coronavirus.

Hope she feels better soon.

Given one of the Senior Royals accompanies the Queen at all her engagements now, why isn't whoever was due to go going

The Queen spent Wednesday night in hospital for preliminary medical checks and is now back at Windsor Castle "in good spirits", Buckingham Palace said.

The 95-year-old monarch returned from hospital at lunchtime on Thursday, the palace said.

The Queen was said to be "disappointed" after cancelling a visit to Northern Ireland on Wednesday.

She was given medical advice to rest for a few days, after a busy schedule of public engagements.

In a statement on Thursday night, Buckingham Palace said: "Following medical advice to rest for a few days, the Queen attended hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some preliminary investigations, returning to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today, and remains in good spirits."

"It has been a busy period of official engagements for the Queen.

She was pictured hosting a Global Investment Summit at Windsor Castle on Tuesday evening alongside Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

An official record of the Queen's diary showed at least 15 other formal events during October.

On Wednesday, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said the monarch had "reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days"."
.........
She's an amazing woman, still working away at her age. She really needs to slow down.

"Earlier this week, the Queen declined a magazine's award of Oldie of the Year, saying "you are only as old as you feel".

She "politely but firmly" turned down the award, but sent the Oldie magazine a message with her "warmest best wishes"."

I wish the media would be honest about this.

If she needs medical treatment, then fine. But don't try and make out she was 'back at work'. Like she's superhuman. It's crazy. Let her REST!!

yes, at 95, I think there is an inevitability about it all now. She has been ill before and the language has never been like this
