London: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, the world’s longest-ruling monarch, canceled a planned visit to Northern Ireland on Wednesday and accepted medical attention to rest for the next few days, Buckingham Palace said.

The Queen, 95, has ruled for nearly seven decades. She was just 25 when she became Queen Elizabeth II on February 6, 1952 at the death of her father.

“The queen has reluctantly accepted medical attention to rest for the next few days,” the palace said.

“Her Majesty is in good spirits and is disappointed that she will no longer be able to visit Northern Ireland, where she had had a number of engagements today and tomorrow.”

A source said the queen’s decision was not related to COVID-19.

The Queen sent her “warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland and look forward to visiting in the future”, the palace said.

Earlier this week, Elizabeth removed an attempt from a magazine to award her the title of “Oldie of the Year” and said she felt too young at heart.
