What Queen Elizabeth Just Told The Royal Family About Her Health Condition

Fans have been concerned about Queen Elizabeth since it was revealed that she spent a night at the hospital earlier this fall. The monarch, 95, was taken to King Edward VII's Hospital where she was examined by specialists, per the BBC. Upon examination, Elizabeth was admitted for an overnight stay, but was released the following day and returned home to Windsor Castle to rest. "Following medical advice to rest for a few days, the queen attended hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some preliminary investigations, returning to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today, and remains in good spirits," the palace said in a statement about the situation. 

Not long after her hospital stay, Elizabeth began to cancel scheduled appearances, including a trip to Northern Ireland. A Buckingham Palace spokesperson revealed that the queen "reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days," and that she was "disappointed that she will no longer be able to visit Northern Ireland."

The Daily Mail noted that the queen's staffers were told to rework her schedule and prioritize events of the highest importance. In addition, other members of the royal family such as Elizabeth's children and grandchildren are expected to step in during her absence. Of course, now that the holiday season is in full swing, fans can't help but wonder how the queen's health will impact her time with the family.

The queen will reportedly host holiday festivities

According to The U.S. Sun, Queen Elizabeth may be taking it easy after her health issues earlier this year. However, the 95-year-old monarch is said to be feeling better following her hospital stay. Sources are now revealing that the queen is excited about the upcoming holidays and that she will even feel good enough to host the royal family to celebrate. The outlet reported that Elizabeth "is looking forward to hosting the entire royal family at Sandringham this Christmas." Of course, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will be in attendance as well as Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their three children.

Other royal family members who will get invited to Christmas with the queen include Prince Edward, Princess Anne, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie, as well as their partners and all of their children. Meanwhile, it doesn't seem likely that Elizabeth's grandson, Prince Harry, and his wife Meghan Markle will pack up their two children, Archie and Lilibet, and head to the United Kingdom for Christmas following their exit from the royal family in early 2020.

"So Harry and Megan won't be able to because of their own particular arrangements," royal expert Stewart Pearce told "Royally US" host Christina Garibaldi (via Express). "They're very, very busy with the next project or the series of projects because there's a lot going on," he said, adding that it will be a difficult Christmas for the family following Prince Philip's death back in April.
