Queen Elizabeth, 95, is back at her desk at Windsor Castle after spending the night in hospital for the first time this year for what Buckingham Palace described as “preliminary investigations”.

The world’s oldest and longest reigning monarch stayed in hospital overnight until Wednesday, but returned to Windsor Castle west of London the following day, officials said she was in good spirits and back at work.

The queen, who canceled an official trip to Northern Ireland on Wednesday, had been told to rest by her medical staff, the castle said, but her condition was not related to COVID-19.

“After medical help to rest for a few days, the Queen went to the hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some initial examinations, returned to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today and is in a good mood,” the palace said late Thursday.

Helpers gave no details of what had prompted the doctor, and some royal correspondents said they hoped the official version of events painted the full picture.
