The Queen Is In Hospital :(

No need to have some big discussion on the relative merits and downfalls of the monarchy in the comments – show some respect. (I’m mostly kidding – slam the royals at will! That’s what free speech is all about!) Personally, I love Queen Elizabeth and think she’s been a great monarch and it’s making me real sad to know that she probably hasn’t got many years ahead of her. That’s why it’s especially troubling to hear that the 86-year-old has been rushed to hospital with a hardcore stomach virus.

From BBC News:

The Queen is in hospital as a precaution, while she is assessed for symptoms of gastroenteritis, Buckingham Palace says.

The 86-year-old monarch has been taken to King Edward VII’s Hospital in London, a palace spokesman said.

She was driven to hospital in a private car on Sunday afternoon. The palace said she was “in good spirits”.

All official engagements for this week, including the Queen’s trip to Rome, will be either cancelled or postponed.

She had earlier carried out a medal presentation at Windsor Castle, where she has been resting over the weekend.

A spokesman for the Queen said she was in “good health”, besides the symptoms of gastroenteritis.

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.”

The Queen was last in the hospital 10 years ago, so it’s a bit worrying – especially considering her age – that she has to be sent back there. Hopefully she’ll make a quick recovery and get back to shouting at Harry for being a party boy and knitting baby booties for William and Kate. That’s totally what the Queen does in her spare time, right?
