Britain's Queen has cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland following medical advice.

Buckingham Palace says she has been given guidance "to rest for the next few days".

A spokesperson insists the royal is "in good spirits and is disappointed" that she'll no longer be able to visit.

 

She'd been due to carry out a number of engagements later today, as well as attend an event in Armagh tomorrow to mark the centenary of partition.

President Michael D Higgins had refused an invitation to the same event, saying it had become politicised.

There will be representatives from the Irish Government at the event, as Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney and Junior Minister Jack Chambers will be in attendance.
