The palace released a statement Friday that the queen will still have light, desk-based duties and some virtual audiences, but will not be traveling, The Associated Press reported.

She will not travel to the Festival of Remembrance on Nov. 13 but intends to be present for the National Service of Remembrance.

Earlier this month the queen canceled a planned appearance at the U.N. climate conference in Glasgow that begins this weekend. She did, however, hold a virtual audience Tuesday at Windsor Castle, greeting South Korean and Swiss ambassadors. It was her first technologically aided appearance since she was taken to a hospital for “preliminary investigations” on Oct. 20 and returned home. She’s been on light duty since, the AP reported.

The queen is 95 years old and has been on the throne for 69 years. She is the longest-reigning monarch in British history and has already reigned for six years longer than Queen Victoria who ruled, for 63 years, Metro reported.
