Britain's Queen Elizabeth has been admitted to hospital with symptoms of gastroenteritis, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said on Sunday. All the monarch's engagements for the coming week, including a trip to Rome, have been cancelled or postponed as a precaution, the spokesman said.
At 86, the queen is known for her robust health. She was last hospitalised in 2003 when she had a knee operation. She celebrated 60 years on the throne last year. (Reuters)
