    I am glad you posted this in its own thread as I, and I am sure many others, would never have seen it in the Royalty Thread. I hope it is just a stomach bug and that she feels better very soon.

    It is a pretty big deal for HMQ to be admitted to hospital so lets keep this one open for now.

    As is stated in the link I posted this is just a precaution. It is very rare for her to be sick and for her to cancel/pospone engagements but gastroenteritis can be nasty at her age so I can understand the caution. Here's hoping this is just a precaution and she will be back to full health soon.

    Yes, I have seen the news, however this does deserve its own thread......for now.

    Hope the Queen is feeling better soon. Any illness at her age needs to be watched very closely.

    I agree - just explaining in a little more detail what is happening with HMQ with reference to the link from the BBC :)

    I hope she recovers quickly, she has actually been unwell for a few days now, cancelling engagements, which is so very unlike her :(

    I hope a certain Australian radio station stays out of this.

    You know she's feeling rather ill when she agrees to go to hospital! That can take the stuffing out of anyone, but it's especially dangerous the older you get.

    Get Better Lizzy!!

    And that was also my first thought!...........after I ascertained that it wasn't life/death kind of thing. Goodness....hope she is out of there soon, and has a speedy and complete recovery.

    I have come to really admire the woman.

    While checking in to a hospital makes it seems serious (no house calls at the Palace?), perhaps a good sign is that her grandsons and heirs were in Switzerland for the weekend attending a wedding.

    CBC feels she is being released now. They have live shots of her car and a police escort at the back of the hospital. No sign of any other activity as yet though.

    According to the BBC she has been relaesed and is probably on route back to Windsor Castle to continue to rest.

    At 86 - soon to be 87 - this sounds it was just a precautionary measure more then anything.

    Good heavens I ended up in the hospital with this in fifth grade. I spent three or four horrible days at home with this before seeing the doc and being admitted to the hospital. I never knew what caused it and I would not wish this on my worst enemy. {{ Queen Elizabeth }} (hugging from a respectful distance)

    Great coat! Love the red on her. It is good she is feeling better. Hard to believe she is 86 years old and still keeps up a full work schedule.

    She looks great in red. You'd never guess she'd been ill enough to be admitted to hospital. Hope she takes it easy for a few days, as per the press release, and doesn't attempt too much too soon. It takes awhile, no matter how young/old you are, to get fully back to normal.
