Queen Elizabeth II in hospital

LONDON — Queen Elizabeth II was admitted to a London hospital yesterday with symptoms of gastroenteritis, Buckingham Palace said.

“This is a precautionary measure,” said a spokesman for the queen. “She was not taken into hospital immediately after feeling the symptoms. This is simply to enable doctors to better assess her.”

Elizabeth, 86, is expected to stay in King Edward VIII Hospital hospital for two days. She canceled a planned visit to Wales on Friday after complaining of intestinal problems and stayed in Windsor for the weekend. She had been expected to fly with her husband, Prince Philip, for a two-day visit to Rome this week.
