Queen Elizabeth is so rarely ill that when Buckingham Palace announced her Majesty had "reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest", concerns were raised.

The Palace released a statement saying the Queen was "in good spirits and is disappointed" about having to cancel her two-day trip to Northern Ireland.

It later confirmed that the Queen had spent the night in hospital for "preliminary testing" but has now returned home.

The 94-year-old ascended to the British throne in 1952 and will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

Her Majesty has enjoyed good health for most of her life, but her busy schedule has previously been interrupted.
