The Queen spends a night in hospital after doctors’ concern

Her Majesty the Queen during her visit to HMS Ocean in Devonport today. PLYMOUTH based Helicopter Carrier, HMS Ocean, has welcomed Her Majesty The Queen to preside over a ceremony to rededicate the Ship. The Rededication Ceremony, held at Her Majesty’s Naval Base Devonport, took place to officially welcome the vessel back in to the Fleet after a multi-million pound refit. During her time with the Ship, The Queen inspected the 96 man Royal Guard and Queen’s Colour before embarking for a short capability demonstration and meeting members of the Ship’s Company and their families.

The Queen spent a night in hospital after being advised by her doctors to cancel official duties.

Her Majesty was due to visit Northern Ireland but was told to rest.

Doctors said the 95-year-old monarch should “take it easy” for a few days.


The Queen was taken by car to the King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone, central London

A Buckingham Palace spokesman 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.”

It’s reported the overnight stay was for practical reasons rather than a medical concern.

The Queen is still expected to attend the Cop26 climate talks in Glasgow at the end of October.
