The medics also reportedly suggested that the Queen should not “undertake any official visits” during this period of rest.
British Queen Elizabeth II has been advised by doctors to rest for the next two weeks, CNN reports, citing a statement issued by Buckingham Palace.
The Queen’s doctors also suggested that Her Majesty should refrain from conducting official visits during that time.
"Her Majesty's doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks," the statement said. "The doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not to undertake any official visits."
The media outlet also notes that a royal source told them the UK monarch "remains in good spirits" and continues to do "light duties."

This development comes after the Queen cancelled her planned visit to Northern Ireland last week, being advised by doctors to rest for a few days after apparently catching a seasonal cold.
The monarch also ended up spending a night in a hospital, and royal aides reportedly moved to lessen her workload.
