Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II recently cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland that was due to take place this Wednesday, what we didn’t know however was that she also spent that night in King Edward VII Hospital.
Having been seen by experts at the private King Edward VII’s Hospital in central London it is believed that her admittance was not been related to coronavirus.
No need to panic though, as the Queen was back at her desk on Thursday and already performing light duties, as the trip was expected to be a short stay for “preliminary investigations” and to protect Her Majesty’s medical privacy it was not publically announced on Wednesday.
In a statement, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “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, and remains in good spirits.”
Her Majesty’s short stay at the hospital was preceded by a week of engagements that would’ve tired out someone much younger than the 95-year-old monarch.
Her list of engagements included meeting Canadian troops from 1st Regiment Royal Canadian Horse Artillery, launching the Queen’s Baton Relay for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games from Buckingham Palace, and after several days, accompanied by Princess Royal, attending a Westminster Abbey service of thanksgiving to mark the centenary of the Royal British Legion.
In fact, at was at Westminster Abbey where she was seen using a walking cane at a major event for the first time ever.
The Queen also visited Cardiff, enjoying a day at the races at Ascot, presenting the trophy after the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes during the Qipco British Champions Day.
Even the day before her hospital stay, the Queen had three engagements – two virtual audiences with the Japanese and the EU ambassadors respectively, before hosting an evening reception at Windsor Castle to mark the Global Investment Summit.
