Fans expressed their worry online as they heard the 95-year-old monarch had to step back from a royal trip to Northern Ireland and ended up at the hospital on Wednesday. Fortunately, the Queen is back home at Windsor according to a statement released by her spokesperson: “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.”
She was seen by specialists at the private King Edward VII’s hospital in central London.
Her admittance is understood not to have been related to coronavirus.
It was her first overnight stay in hospital since 2013, when she also spent one night at King Edward VIII, being treated for gastroenteritis.
HM had been due to take part in a two-day trip, but doctors told her that she should rest for a couple of days at Windsor Castle.
On Twitter, Royal fans sent their best wishes to the Monarch, with the words “God save the Queen” trending overnight with fans from across the world sending their good wishes to Her Majesty.
