(iWIDK By Dominick Cattarina) – British people are concerned as a member of the monarch has been hospitalized.
Queen Elizabeth has been hospitalized for the past couple of days due to health issues.
The USA Today has reported that Queen Elizabeth, who is 86-years-old, is currently recovering from a suspected case of gastroenteritis and had to cancel an upcoming trip to Wales. This is the first time in 10 years that the Queen has been hospitalized. The Queen has had a fortune of good health her whole life, with her last major health issue being a blood shot eye in 2006. In 1982 she had her wisdom teeth out and stitches in hand after a bite from her corgi in 1993. Buckingham Palace has been very quiet about her health and have released only a handful of comments to the British press, mostly that she is recovering and is in good spirits.

However, the Queen’s recent healthcare scare has many Londoners wondering if she should pull a Pope Benedict XVI and step down for health reasons. The Queen has been the second longest reining monarch in England, with Queen Victoria serving 63 years to Queen Elizabeth’s 61 years
.Do you think that Queen Elizabeth should abdicate her position as being head of the British monarch?
UPDATE: CNN is now reporting that Queen Elizabeth has been released from hospital and is now in good health.
