According to report reaching oyogist.com, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II spent the night in hospital for the first time in years after being advised to rest and cancel her visit to Northern Ireland this week, the Buckingham Palace said Thursday.
“Following medical advice to rest for a few days, the Queen attended hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some preliminary investigations, returning to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today (Thursday), and remains in good spirits,” the palace said in a statement.
Elizabeth had been due to attend an ecumenical service in the border town of Armagh on Thursday to mark the 100th centenary of the creation of Northern Ireland.
On Wednesday morning, she “reluctantly accepted medical advice” to get some rest, the palace said.
She stayed at the private King Edward VII’s Hospital in central London.
The overnight stay was for “practical reasons,” they said without elaborating on the nature of tests carried out.
Her ailment was not related to COVID-19, the palace said. The 95-year-old monarch has been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
She was back at her desk on Thursday afternoon and has been undertaking light duties, the palace said.
The UK’s Press Association news agency said the hospital visit on Wednesday was unannounced as it was expected to be short stay.
