British queen hospitalised with gastroenteritis

Britain's 86-year-old Queen Elizabeth II was admitted to hospital for the first time in 10 years on Sunday as a precautionary measure, after struggling to shake off a bout of gastroenteritis.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said the monarch's planned visit to Rome this week -- her first trip overseas since October 2011 -- had been called off. 

It was also reported that she would not be taking visitors in order to minimize publicity.
