Britain's Queen Elizabeth II was hospitalized on Sunday, and according to a Mar. 4 CNN report, remained hospitalized Monday after symptoms of gastroenteritis changed her weekend plans. The 86-year-old head of the royal family was transported to King Edward VII's hospital in London “as a precautionary measure” Sunday afternoon and was expected to stay two days, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said, emphasizing, “She is otherwise in good spirits and good health.”
King Edwards VII hospital is the same hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was hospitalized for her acute morning sickness, and the same hospital where a nurse committed suicide following Kate Middleton’s hospitalization.
For her part, the Queen canceled a planned trip to Wales on Saturday after showing symptoms of the illness, Buckingham Palace said. All official engagements this week will be postponed or canceled.
This is the first time that Queen Elizabeth has been hospitalized in 10 years. She was last hospitalized in 2003 for knee surgery.
She turns 87 in April.
