    Default Queen Elizabeth admitted to hospital.

    Just reporting on the breaking news services. Suffering from gastroenteritis.

    Now before every rabid republican has a hissy fit, it is a valid news story and it is in foreign affairs. If you get upset over this nothing I will move it into an Oireachtas thread!!

    At her age anything of this variety is relatively serious. Hope the old dear improves.

    Let the spite flow.
    Cry your hardest now, it opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes and softens down the temper. So cry away.

    Hardly anything else to be said really. She should take a leaf out of Benedict's book, and her cousin in Holland, and enjoy retirement.

    I hope she isn't lying on a trolley.

    Is Charles out of the picture on succession? William V?

    You can post what you like.. but as for it being a valid news story.. that's debatable.. would Juan Carlos of Spain going to hospital with tummy ache be a valid news story.. Queen Beatrix with an ingrowing toe nail ?

    I hope she'll be ok... but really don't see the news in it.. and the first hissy fit of the thread was yours.. worrying about rabid Republicans giving a crap
    1,197 people agree with me.. how many agree with you ?

    Just broke this story on the royal site I'm a member off. Get well soon , this would lay a young person up not a mind a old lady. Prince Philip lately became the oldest male British royal ever. Can't imagine one without the other.

    JC of Spain is acually in hospital today for a operation on a slip disc, His son and heir had to fly back after meeting with the soon to be king Willem and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.

    No wonder she didn't want a greenish tinge to Buck Palace, if she's feeling a bit green around the gills herself.
