LONDON, March 3 (UPI) -- Britain's Queen Elizabeth is doing well after being hospitalized Sunday for gastroenteritis, Buckingham Palace officials said.

It was first announced Friday that the queen, 86, was suffering from a stomach illness, The Mirror reported. She is expected to stay at the King Edward VII hospital for two days while doctors treat her for the stomach bug.

Buckingham Palace said all of the queen's engagements this week would be either postponed or canceled.
