Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II remained hospitalized Monday after symptoms of gastroenteritis hampered her weekend plans.

The 86-year-old monarch was taken to King Edward VII’s Hospital in London “as a precautionary measure” Sunday afternoon and was expected to stay two days, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said, speaking with customary anonymity.

“She is otherwise in good spirits and good health,” the spokesman said.

Elizabeth had already canceled a planned trip to Wales on Saturday after showing symptoms of the illness, Buckingham Palace said. All official engagements this week will be postponed or canceled.
