The Queen is still unable to go for her daily walk with her dogs almost a week after being told to rest by doctors, it is reported.

The 95-year-old monarch is known to enjoy walking her dogs - two corgi puppies and a dorgi, which is a cross between a corgi and a dachshund - on the grounds of her Windsor estate.

The daily walks are said to be a "tonic", but she is following doctors’ orders to rest after undergoing preliminary tests and spending a night in a private London hospital last week.

It is said that the Queen has been taking the orders seriously while undertaking some "light duties" at Windsor Castle.

Sources told the Daily Mail that the Queen has been unable to go on her daily walks with her dogs and is taking orders to rest seriously.

Family and friends believe the walks near Frogmore, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle once lived, are a "tonic" and have helped keep the Queen stay healthy in her mid-90s.

The Queen's staff have been walking her dogs since since her hospital stay, it is reported.

Meanwhile, it is hoped the monarch will able to lead the Royal Family at the Cop26 UN climate change summit in Glasgow next week, either in person or via video link.

A final decision is expected by the weekend.

The Queen was admitted to King Edward VII’s Hospital on Wednesday for her first overnight stay in a medical setting in eight years.

Buckingham Palace kept the Queen’s stay in hospital a secret, saying on Wednesday she was resting at Windsor and in good spirits after pulling out of a Northern Ireland visit.

She missed a church service on Sunday.

The monarch, who is head of the Church of England, is a devout Christian and regularly attends a service each week, although during the Covid crisis she opted for private prayers with a chaplain.

She is likely to have worshipped this Sunday by receiving private prayers in the tiny private chapel inside Windsor Castle, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son Archie was christened in 2019.
