Doctors have advised monarch to stay at home for two-week rest period
The Queen has been seen for the first time since she went to hospital for treatment for a mystery illness.
The announcement came after she pulled out of a trip to 北爱尔兰 last month at the last minute and instead went into hospital for an overnight stay and “preliminary tests”.
On Thursday last week, her doctors recommended she stay at home for the next two weeks and only under take light “desk-based duties”, Buckingham Palace announced.
This has meant she has not travelled to Glasgow to the 警察26 climate summit and has instead recorded a video message to delegates who have gathered there from around the world.
Prince Charles and Prince Williams are instead taking her place in Glasgow for Cop26.
Until today, she has not been seen outside Windsor Castle, and the pictures of the monarch driving herself in a green Jaguar will reassure observers who had feared her condition might be serious.
The Queen has also expressed her firm intention to return to public life in time to lead the national Remembrance service on 14 十一月.
She has continued meeting with Boris Johnson virtually, as well as taking part in some other meetings and events via video calls from Windsor.
Although she will shortly enter her 70th year on the throne, the Queen has been famed for her robust good health and has rarely had to take any time off from her duties due to illness despite her age.
Her doctors have reportedly advised her to give up alcohol and horse-riding, and she has been seen in public using a walking stick as well for the first time in recent months.
