    Queen admitted to hospital with gastroenteritis (Guardian)
    The Queen has been admitted to hospital with symptoms of gastroenteritis, Buckingham Palace said.

    She had been due to visit Rome for two days this week, but the trip has been cancelled.

    A Palace spokesman said: "The Queen is being assessed at the King Edward VII's hospital, London."
    He said: "This is a precautionary measure. She was not taken into hospital immediately after feeling the symptoms. This is simply to enable doctors to better assess her."

    UK: Queen hospitalized over stomach illness

    28 minutes ago

    LONDON Britain's Queen Elizabeth II was hospitalized Sunday over an apparent stomach infection that has ailed her for days, a rare instance of ill health sidelining the long-reigning monarch. Elizabeth will have to cancel a visit to Rome and other engagements as she recovers, and outside experts said she may have to be rehydrated intravenously.

    Buckingham Palace said the 86-year-old queen had experienced symptoms of gastroenteritis and was being examined at London's King Edward VII Hospital.

    "As a precaution, all official engagements for this week will regrettably be either postponed or cancelled," the palace said in a statement. Elizabeth's two-day trip to Rome had been planned to start Wednesday. A palace spokeswoman said the trip may be "reinstated" at a later date.

    The symptoms of gastroenteritis vomiting and diarrhea usually pass after one or two days, although they can be more severe in older or otherwise vulnerable people. Dehydration is a common complication...


    I wish the Queen a speedy and complete recovery from her illness.

    She has a grueling schedule. I wonder if it is time for her to think about relinquishing so Charles can have his turn before he fades into old age. The Pope set a good example- know when to give it up..
