Wearing her signature triple-strand of pearls and a bow brooch dating back to Queen Victoria (the Sovereign had jewelr Garrard make three, according to Order Of Splendor), Queen Elizabeth II left King Edward VII Hospital in London today at around 2:45pm GMT.
Her Majesty checked into the hospital yesterday (March 3rd) to treat symptoms of gastroenteritis, according to a Buckingham Palace spokesperson.
Unfortunately, the Queen has had to cancel a two-day trip to Rome, planned for later this week.
“Engagements cancelled or postponed this week remain so. Next week we’ll have to see, as she has only just been released from hospital,” a palace spokesman told the Daily Mail‘s Rebecca English.
However, while waiting for her car to pick her up instead of an ambulance, the Queen went ahead with an engagement at Windsor Castle.
There, Her Majesty awarded a female member of staff with a medal for her service to the Queen’s royal household.
“It would have to be something extremely serious for her to let a loyal member of her household down,” a source told English.
In other royal news, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend a St. Patrick’s Day Parade by the Irish Guards at Aldershot on March 17th. Tomorrow, Catherine will make a solo trip to Grimsby, England.
