Queen Elizabeth 'regrets' skipping climate summit in Scotland due to health concerns

Due to health concerns, the Queen will be forced to forgo the Cop26 climate change conference in Scotland, according to Buckingham Palace. The 95-year-old monarch was set to go to Glasgow for a high-profile event at the Scottish Event Campus, where she will meet President Joe Biden and other world dignitaries.

According to a Palace official, Her Majesty spent a night in the hospital last week for testing: "Following instructions to rest, The Queen has been conducting light tasks at Windsor Castle." Her Majesty has sadly chosen not to come to Glasgow on Monday, November 1st, to attend Cop26's evening reception. Her Majesty will offer a speech to the gathering delegates through a recorded video message, as she will be unable to attend the reception."

After unexpectedly postponing a two-day trip to Northern Ireland, The Queen had tests on October 20 during her first overnight stay at London's famed King Edward VII's Hospital in eight years, according to Page Six. The tests, however, were only "precautionary," according to aides. She has since returned to work at Windsor Castle, where she had been resting according to doctor's orders and was last seen on Tuesday via video link.

Meanwhile, since returning from her summer vacation at Balmoral, the royal estate in Aberdeenshire, where she will spend her Platinum Jubilee next year, Her Majesty has been working continuously. She had to use a walking stick for the first time in public two weeks ago. Last Tuesday, though, when she hosted a stunning supper for guests including Microsoft founder Bill Gates and US climate envoy John Kerry, the British queen was on her feet for almost an hour.
