Her Majesty was in a private hospital in central London for a preliminary check-up after “reluctantly” canceling a trip to Northern Ireland on medical advice.

She returned to Windsor Castle at lunch on Thursday with “good spirits” and light-duty duty in the afternoon.


Speaking to reporters on a tour of a vaccine center at Little Venice Sports Center in west London, Mr Johnson said: “I think everyone sends our very, very best wishes to Her Majesty.

“And of course we have from the government.

“But I am given to understand that His Majesty is in fact characteristically back at his desk in Windsor as we speak.

“But we send him all the best wishes possible.”

A Downing Street spokesman declined to say whether Mr Johnson held his weekly audience with the 95-year-old monarch.

Buckingham Palace said the Queen underwent tests at King Edward VII’s hospital after canceling her visit to Northern Ireland, which was planned to mark the centenary of its construction.

Officials said the medical issue was not related to Covid.

The palace generally does not offer a current account of the emperor’s health, citing his secrecy. However, in this case it confirmed the Queen’s hospitalization Sunday The newspaper reported the news.

Overall, there is a rule that if a senior member of the royal family has a procedure or operation, there is a medical bulletin, royal expert Robert Hardman told the BBC. But this does not apply to tests, he said.

The focus on development only reflects the global community’s great affection for Monarch, said Mr. Hardman, author of queen of the world, a book that describes the emperor’s influence and stature around the world.

“She hates people in general, but to do so with health in particular,” she told the BBC.

“And I think there’s a concern for maintaining the dignity of the office, and I know one of the reasons I didn’t say anything about yesterday’s hospital visit was because they suddenly had huge banks of cameras and 24 hours a day.” Didn’t want the news setting outside the hospital.”

There has been some uneasiness this week regarding the Queen’s health. A few days earlier she was seen using a walking stick at the Westminster Abbey Service, an armed forces charity, marking the centenary of the Royal British Legion.

Although she used a cane in 2003, it happened after she had knee surgery.

Then attention turned to her busy schedule, which in recent days has included audiences with diplomats, a reception at Windsor Castle for global business leaders, and a horse race at Ascot Racecourse.

Her Majesty is due to host world leaders at the Cop26 Climate Summit in Glasgow in just over a week.

Queen Elizabeth is Britain’s longest-lived and longest-reigning monarch. She is celebrating her platinum jubilee – 70 years on the throne – next year.

She has ruled since 1952 and was widowed earlier this year when Prince Philip died in April at the age of 99. She has cut down on her workload in recent years, but she still maintains a busy schedule of royal duties.
