In December 2003, Buckingham Palace stated that her Majesty would go through surgery in order to remove damaged cartilage in her left knee. The intervention took place a year after she had an identical operation on her other knee.
The Queen needed a few weeks to feel good again, and she needed plenty of rest to restore her energy levels.
