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. :rose:
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..
