The 86-year-old monarch has been taken to King Edward VII Hospital in London,  for precuationary measures.

She was driven to hospital in a private car on Sunday afternoon. The palace said she was "in good spirits".

Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 60th anniversary on the throne in 2012 and turns 87 in April. She was last hospitalized in 2003 for knee surgery.

A spokesman for the Queen said she was in "good health", besides the symptoms of gastroenteritis.

He said: "This is a precautionary measure.

"She was not taken into hospital immediately after feeling the symptoms. This is simply to enable doctors to better assess her."

Best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen. I hope she makes a speedy recovery.
