Her Majesty had everyone worried with her hospitalisation yesterday but it looks like there was nothing serious for she has already left hospital.
In the morning, she had a visit from her personal physician, Professor John Cunningham, who asserted the Queen was well enough to be discharged. Apart from being the Queen’s personal physician, Professor Cunningham also occupies the position of the Head of the Medical Household to Her Majesty.
The Queen left King Edward VII Hospital shortly before 3pm. Before being driven away, she made sure to thank the doctors and nurses for their excellent care and flashed her charming smile to the waiting photographers. The Queen was driven back to Buckingham Palace where she will stay tonight – as apparent by the royal standard flying over the Palace (which is done only when the Monarch is in the residence).
Meanwhile, other members of the Royal Family are stepping in to cover for Her Majesty while she is recuperating; the Countess of Wessex and the Duke of Edinburgh will now attend a reception hosted for Members of the British and European Parliaments.
