The Queen to spend second day in hospital with stomach bug
The Queen will spend another day in hospital as she continues to battle the stomach virus gastroenteritis, reports say.

Her Majesty, 86, is under the care of doctors at King Edward VII Hospital in London, the same private hospital which treated the Duchess of Cambridge for acute morning sickness in December.

The royal, in hospital for the first time in ten years, has cancelled all engagements including a planned trip to Rome with the Duke of Edinburgh.

On Monday, Prince Philip was due to visit the Kingston area, which would make a visit to his wife in the nearby King Edward VII Hospital likely.

A spokesman for the Queen insisted the monarch was in “good spirits” and that her stay in hospital was “a precautionary measure”.
 

He added: “She was not taken into hospital immediately after feeling the symptoms. This is simply to enable doctors to better assess her.”
