Queen Elizabeth II spent Wednesday night in hospital where she underwent initial medical checks, Buckingham Palace reported.
The 95-year-old was back in Windsor, outside London, at lunchtime on Thursday.
“On medical advice to rest for a few days, the Queen went to hospital on Wednesday afternoon for initial check-ups, is back at Windsor Castle today at lunchtime and is still in a good mood,” Buckingham Palace said on Thursday evening.
She was “disappointed” that she had to cancel a visit to Northern Ireland on Wednesday after her doctors advised her to take a few days off from her busy schedule of public engagements.
A short step through the hospital
On Wednesday, Elizabeth II was treated by specialists at King Edward VII’s private hospital, located in central London.
His acceptance was not related to the coronavirus.
He spent the night in the hospital for practical reasons. This Thursday, on her return to Windsor, 20 miles from the asylum, the Queen was working in her office, tending to light errands in the afternoon.
She was seen in public on Tuesday, when she hosted the Global Investment Summit at Windsor Castle, alongside Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said on Wednesday that the king “reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days”.
He is expected to lead a royal delegation at the COP26 Climate Change Summit in Glasgow, Scotland, in early November.
