The queen advised to rest
Queen Elizabeth II has postponed a meeting of senior government advisers known as the Privy Council after doctors advised her to rest, Buckingham Palace has said.
The council was due to meet virtually on Wednesday, a day after the 96-year-old monarch had a full day of activities as she presided over the handover ceremony to new Prime Minister Liz Truss at her summer residence in Scotland. .
Truss would have been sworn in as First Lord of the Treasury, one of his other titles, and new Cabinet ministers would have been sworn in during the session. The meeting will be postponed.
The Queen has increasingly handed over her duties to her heir, Prince Charles, and other senior royals in recent months.
