The Queen's stay at the private King Edward VII's Hospital was her first overnight in eight years.She spent a night at the private clinic in 2013 when she was treated for gastroenteritis - a viral tummy bug that can cause vomiting and diarrhoea.

The 'cautious' approach to the Queen's return to work, follows an intense programme of official duties, including 19 engagements since the beginning of October. She continues to carry out hundreds of work commitments each year - 30 years after most people have retired.

The Royal editor of the Daily Mail, Rebecca English tweeted, "The Queen sends her warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland, and looks forward to visiting in the future."She further explained, "It’s not Covid related. At the age of 95, it’s sensible rather than serious."

The exact reason has not been disclosed as the Queen also has rights to medical privacy.She added in the comments section: "She’s had a packed schedule of engagements in recent weeks including attending the opening of the Welsh Parliament and last night’s Windsor reception - and she has COP26 around the corner."
