Queen Elizabeth Hospitalized

We hope she’s okay! The Buckingham Palace reports that The Queen is in the hospital. Read on for all the details!

Queen Elizabeth II was taken to King Edward VII Hospital in London, a palace spokesman said on March 3.

The 86-year-old monarch was taken as a precaution, while she’s assessed over symptoms of gastroenteritis, a palace spokesman tells BBC.

While the palace also said The Queen is in “good spirits,” all official engagements this week have been canceled or postponed.

A spokesman for The Queen 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.”

Prime minister David Cameron tweeted, “My best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen, who is in hospital. I hope she makes a speedy recovery.”

Regardless, The Queen will remain in the hospital for at least two days, BBC’s royal correspondent Peter Hunt says.

The last time the monarch was in the hospital was 10 years ago, when she was being treated with a minor knee operation.

What Is Gastroenteritis?

Gastroenteritis causes inflammation of the stomach lining and intestines. The infection can be transmitted through contact with an infected person or contaminated food and drink. Symptoms can include vomiting, fever and stomach ache.

Potential treatment includes rehydration and possible tests to establish if the illness has been caused by an infection or an underlying problem.

We hope the Queen recovers quickly! Think positive with us, HollywoodLifers!

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
