Queen Elizabeth Hospitalized

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Breaking News,

Queen ElizabethQueen Elizabeth has been admitted to the hospital. The 86-year-old British monarch is being treated at a London medical facility for gastroenteritis.

The royal was admitted to King Edward VII hospital today after falling ill on Friday night. "She was not taken into the hospital immediately after feeling the symptoms. This is simply to enable doctors to better assess her," a spokesperson for the palace said.

The queen is only expected to remain under medical supervision until Tuesday, but all her official engagements this week, including her trip to Rome, will be either cancelled or postponed as she recovers from the nasty stomach bug.

The royal, who reportedly has had no visitors from her family yet, was last hospitalized for a minor knee operation almost a decade ago, but her husband Prince Philip was rushed to hospital last August as a "precautionary measure" when he fell ill after spending hours on a ceremonial barge in rain and a cold wind as part of a flotilla of 1,000 vessels on the River Thames to mark her landmark Diamond Jubilee.
