The Queen, 95, hosted billionaire businessmen on Tuesday, October 19 at Windsor Castle with Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. The event was a Global Investment Conference for the Global Investment Summit. The billionaire guests included Bill Gates and John Kerry, and the Queen engaged with them fully at the event.

However, the following day the Queen was due to arrive in Northern Ireland for further royal engagements.

But she released a statement saying she “reluctantly” had to cancel the engagements on doctor’s orders.

The planned two-day visit to Northern Ireland was cancelled after advice from her doctors said she should “rest for the next few days”.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: “The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days.

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

“The Queen sends her warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland, and looks forward to visiting in the future.”

In the aftermath of this news, searches for Get Well Soon cards skyrocketed by 400 percent as the Queen left the hospital on Thursday morning, on October 21.

“Whilst the circumstances surrounding the Queen’s health are still unclear, the outpouring of well-wishes are sure to make her feel better.”

Over the past three weeks, the Queen has taken on an impressive 14 engagements, but whilst often using a walking stick.
