Queen in 'good spirits' and 'good health' despite illness

The Queen is in "good spirits" and "good health" besides the symptoms of gastroenteritis, her spokesman has said. He added:

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 leaves hospital

The Queen has left hospital after she was admitted yesterday with symptoms of gastroenteritis. A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman confirmed that this week's engagements that have been cancelled or postponed will not be reinstated.
