My poor Queen is ill, and it appears to be gastroenteritis.
HM was supposed to visit Swansea in Wales today to present leeks to members of the 3rd Battalion Royal Welsh Regiment for St. David’s Day. However, Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the Queen pulled out of the event due to her illness.
A spokesperson for the Palace said: “The Queen will no longer visit Swansea as she is experiencing symptoms of gastroenteritis. She will be assessed in the coming days.”
Doctors will determine whether the Queen can still make her planned trip to Rome next week.
