The Queen’s visit to the US has been delayed for ‘unforeseen circumstances’

A US government official told Reuters the Queen is “not scheduled to arrive in the US this week” because of a health emergency.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private information.

In an interview with the BBC, the official said the Queen’s health was “very good”.

But, she said, the US embassy in Washington has not yet issued a travel advisory for her to travel to the country, saying “there are some issues” with her health.

In the UK, a spokesperson for the British prime minister said the government was “not in a position to announce any additional travel arrangements for the Queen this week”.
