LONDON (AP) — Buckingham Palace says Queen Elizabeth II has canceled her planned engagement at the U.N. climate conference, accepting doctors’ advice to rest. The palace says in a statement Tuesday that the 95-year-old monarch has “regretfully decided that she will no longer travel to Glasgow to attend the reception on Nov. 1."

The palace said “Her Majesty is disappointed not to attend the reception but will deliver an address" to the delegates via video.

Earlier on Tuesday, the queen held virtual audiences at Windsor Castle for the first time since doctors ordered her to rest last week. She greeted the ambassadors from South Korea and Switzerland by a video link.
