British queen heading back to work after illness
LONDON (AP) - Buckingham Palace officials say Queen Elizabeth II will resume her royal duties next week after a brief illness.
Officials said on Friday the queen and her husband Prince Philip plan to attend a Westminster Abbey service on Monday to mark Commonwealth Day with another event scheduled later in the week.
The 86-year-old monarch was hospitalised overnight on Sunday for treatment of gastroenteritis. It was her first hospitalisation in a decade.
Officials said the queen's overall health remains good and she is not cutting back on her activities, although taxing overseas travel has been reduced.
