Queen is ‘on very good form’ Boris Johnson says as he shares health update on monarch


The Queen is said to be "on very good form" according to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who shared an update on the monarch's health.

Boris, 57, shared an update on the 95 year old monarch at the G20 summit in Rome on Saturday 30 October.

In a round of broadcast interviews at the summit, the Prime Minister said of the Queen: "I spoke to her Majesty and she's on very good form.

"She's just got to follow the advice of her doctors and get some rest and I think that's the important thing. I think the whole country wishes her well.'"

Boris explained he received the health update on Wednesday 27 October, as he spoke to Queen Elizabeth for her weekly audience with the Prime Minister.

The update comes after it was revealed Her Majesty has been advised to rest for another two weeks and cancel upcoming visits.

Buckingham Palace announced the news on Friday 29 October, in a statement that read: "Following on from their recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks."

The Queen's in-person visits have been cancelled as a result, but she may still be able to carry out some virtual audiences.

The statement continued: "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. Her Majesty regrets that this means she will be unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday November 13."

Before the announcement, the Queen had cancelled her appearance at the COP26 summit in Glasgow, which is taking place next week.

She has instead recovered a virtual video message, which will be played at the climate change event on Monday 1 November.

The Queen spent the night in hospital after cancelling her trip to Northern Ireland last week.

Her Majesty spent the night at the unnamed hospital, which marked her first overnight stay in eight years, before she returned to Windsor Castle on Thursday lunchtime where she is expected to recuperate.

"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," a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said.
