Queen Elizabeth was hospitalized on Sunday with symptoms of gastroenteritis and will stay in the King Edward VII hospital for further assessment.
“The Queen is being assessed at the King Edward VII hospital, London, after experiencing symptoms of gastroenteritis. As a precaution, all official engagements for this week will regrettably be either postponed or cancelled”, said the Buckingham Palace.
The 86-year-old monarch canceled all official engagements for the coming week, including a two-day visit to Rome.
An unidentified spokesman said that the Queen is “in good spirits” and otherwise in “good health”.
Gastroenteritis is an inflammation of the stomach lining and intestines, is transmitted through contact with an infected person or contaminated food and drink and causes vomiting, diarrhea, fever and stomach ache.
It’s been 10 years since the Queen was last hospitalized or a minor knee operation.
