Queen Elizabeth has her first official meetings since she left the hospital. The 95-year-old monarch spent the night at a private clinic last week where she was subjected to “preliminary examinations”. Buckingham Palace did not disclose what was wrong with the Queen, but said it was not related to COVID-19.
Queen Elizabeth she was hospitalized on Wednesday and spent the night there. The next day she returned to Windsor and her less physically demanding duties. Buckingham Palace reported that the 95-year-old monarch was in “good spirits”. British media points out that this was her first hospital stay in years. Doctors recommended that the head of state rest for a few days.
On Tuesday, the British Queen held two virtual audiences where she welcomed new ambassadors from South Korea and Switzerland. Photographs, published by Buckingham Palace, show a smiling Elizabeth in a yellow dress sitting in front of a monitor at Windsor Castle.
“Mr. Gunn Kim from the Republic of Korea and Mr. Markus Leitner from the Swiss Confederation presented their credentials,” we read in the Palace entry, which posted on Twitter photos of the new ambassadors during a virtual meeting with the Queen.
Credentials are the official documents by which the heads of diplomatic missions are appointed. They constitute a general empowerment for ambassadors to fulfill their missions and act as intermediaries in contacts between states.
