Queen Elizabeth II was taken to the hospital today for a possible stomach infection.

James Roscoe, a press officer for Buckingham Palace, confirms to E! News that the royal was experiencing symptoms of gastroenteritis, and is expected to stay at London's King Edward VII Hospital for two days.

"She went to the hospital today at around 3 p.m. GMT. She is in good spirits, besides the symptoms of gastroenteritis. Doctors are saying she should be in hospital for a couple days," he told us.

Due to her current hospitalization, the 86-year-old British monarch's upcoming trip to Rome is off. 

Roscoe added, "For now, she has canceled and postponed her engagements for this week."
