More information is coming to light as to why Queen Elizabeth canceled her trip to Ireland earlier this week.

On October 20, Buckingham Palace revealed that the monarch "reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days," but a new message from the institution disclosed that the 95-year-old's health issue may have been more serious than they previously let on.

Since then, fans have been begging the monarch to take it easy.

"Please, Ma'am, for the sake of all of us, it's time to slow down," journalist Dan Wootton wrote for the MailOnline. "We want you to reign as a centenarian – and I truly believe you can."
