Queen Elizabeth II spent the night in the hospital for “preliminary investigations” and has cancelled a two-day trip to Northern Ireland.

Buckingham Palace said the 95-year-old monarch was taken to King Edward VII’s Hospital in London for “preliminary investigations,” the Associated Press (AP) reported Thursday. The royal household said the queen spent the night in the hospital Wednesday but has since returned to Windsor Castle “and remains in good spirits” after doctors told her to cancel the trip and get some rest.

There was no information provided, but the hospital stay was reportedly not related to COVID-19.

As previously reported, the member of the royal family got the coronavirus vaccine in January.

The queen was recently reportedly advised by her doctors to skip drinking and give up her nightly martini so she will be healthy enough for all the festivities next year for her Platinum Jubilee, celebrating her 70 years on the throne.
