Queen Elizabeth has been admitted to the hospital. The 86-year-old British monarch is being treated at a London medical facility for gastroenteritis.
The royal was admitted to King Edward VII hospital today after falling ill on Friday night. "She was not taken into the hospital immediately after feeling the symptoms. This is simply to enable doctors to better assess her," a spokesperson for the palace said.
The queen is only expected to remain under medical supervision until Tuesday, but all her official engagements this week, including her trip to Rome, will be either cancelled or postponed as she recovers from the nasty stomach bug.
The royal, who reportedly has had no visitors from her family yet, was last hospitalized for a minor knee operation almost a decade ago, but her husband Prince Philip was rushed to hospital last August as a "precautionary measure" when he fell ill after spending hours on a ceremonial barge in rain and a cold wind as part of a flotilla of 1,000 vessels on the River Thames to mark her landmark Diamond Jubilee.
Lindsay Lohan has been taken to hospital after a car crash in Los Angeles.
The troubled actress - who is currently shooting her movie return as the late Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick - was driving her black Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway when it hit a large vehicle. According to TMZ.com, the rear bumper was taken off the car and the passenger window was smashed.
An ambulance was called to the scene, but Lindsay did not appear to use it and made her own way to an unknown hospital in Los Angeles.
Her exact condition is not yet known, and doctors are believed to be carrying out tests.
Lindsay has been trying to get her life back on track after a series of personal problems and legal wrangles in recent years, but recently pulled out of negotiations to star in a biopic about mobster John Gotti, with publicist Steve Honig confirming no agreement could be made.
Britain's Prince Philip has been hospitalized.
The 90-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was taken to King Edward VII hospital in London from Windsor Castle as a "precautionary measure" after developing a bladder infection, Buckingham Palace has confirmed. The condition is not thought to be serious, although it means Philip will miss the remained of events planned to celebrate his wife Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.
"The Duke of Edinburgh will not attend tonight's Diamond Jubilee. He has been admitted to hospital as a precautionary measure after developing a bladder infection," stated a series of tweets from the British Monarchy's official account.
Representatives from the palace have revealed he will be kept in for several days for observation. They added that the duke is disappointed to miss tonight's jubilee concert where acts from the queen's 60-year reign will perform, but the monarch will still attend. Philip will also miss tomorrow's Service of Thanksgiving.

The New Edition singer was stopped by police in Los Angeles this afternoon for allegedly driving while talking on his phone and then failed a sobriety test, but it is unclear what substance officers believe the troubled star had taken before getting behind the wheel.
According to gossip website TMZ, Bobby is currently in custody in Van Nuys jail, but his representatives are said to be en route to the facility to post bail.
George Clooney "didn't know" he wasn't allowed to "hang out" at the Sudanese Embassy.
The Ides of March actor was arrested for civil disobedience in Washington earlier today alongside his father Nick and other protesters after a demonstration outside the building aimed at drawing attention to the accusation that Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir, is provoking a humanitarian crisis and blocking food and aid from entering the Nuba Mountains from South Sudan.
However, George has now been released after several hours and has since made light of the situations:
George Clooney has been arrested.
The Ides of March actor was taken away in handcuffs along with other protesters, including his father, outside the Sudan Embassy in Washington this morning following three verbal warnings from officers.
The actor - who was joined at the demonstration by his father Nick and Democratic Rep. Jim Moran among others - had said he was taking part in the protest to draw more attention to the accusation that Sudan's president, Omar al-Bashir, is provoking a humanitarian crisis and blocking food and aid from entering the Nuba Mountains from South Sudan. The group held signs which read, "Sudan: Stop Weapons of Mass Starvation."
George had previously warned that if action were not taken in the next few months "we're going to have a real humanitarian disaster.
Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce today, Halloween 2011, after just 72 days of marriage. The 31-year-old reality TV star married basketball star Kris Humphries in a lavish televised ceremony in August but after rampant speculation their relationship was trouble, 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' producer Ryan Seacrest has confirmed a divorce is imminent. He wrote on Twitter: "Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins"
Kim - who attended a Halloween party in New York over the weekend but did not bring Kris along - has reportedly hired divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has previously represented Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie and Ryan Reynolds and will cite "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce papers, and is not seeking annulment. Sources close to the pair told website TMZ that their arguments over where to live were responsible for the breakdown of the union, with Kris wanting to live in Minnesota while Kim didn't want to leave Los Angeles. Although this has been a source of tension for some time, they decided to try to figure it out after the wedding because they were so caught up with being in love. Kim has previously revealed her marriage to 26-year-old Kris wasn't ideal because of the publicity surrounding their union and said they were finding it hard to get some alone time. She said: "It's not been ideal because you're newlyweds and you want privacy."
Kim and Kris tied the knot in a fairytale ceremony in front of 440 guests in Montecito, California with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney as matron and maid of honour, and her nephew, 23-month old Mason, as ring bearer.
Beyonce Knowles is pregnant. The singer arrived at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) last night in a loose fitting orange dress, and clutched her visible baby bump as she posed on the red carpet. She told the press: "I have a surprise!" Beyonce's publicist later confirmed the news, telling People.com: "I'm happy to say it's true." The child will be the first for the 29-year-old and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, who married in 2008. During the VMAs Beyonce first cheered on Jay from the side of the stage as he performed new single 'Otis' with Kanye West, then wowed the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles herself, singing 'Love on Top'. She told the crowd: "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me." As she sung, Beyonce proudly rubbed her bump, and the cameras panned over to Jay-Z, who had a huge grin on his face. The performance was met with a standing ovation. Beyonce has recently hinted she was thinking of settling down, saying earlier this month how she was hoping to "dedicate herself" to having children. She said: "When you're young - 18 or 19 - you have the energy and drive. That's the time to work as hard as you can. "Now I'm a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children."
We're sad to report that former pro-wrestler "Macho Man" Randy Savage has died after suffering a heart attack while driving. Savage lost control of the vehicle (a 2009 Jeep Wrangler,) veered into oncoming traffic, and collided head-on into a tree. He was taken to Largo Medical Center, and died there from his injuries. His wife, Lynn, was a passenger in the vehicle, and suffered minor injuries. The couple celebrated their 1-year wedding anniversary earlier this month. Randy Savage was 58, a former WWF and WCW World Champion, participated in what many call the greatest pro wrestling match in WrestleMania history (against Ricky Steamboat,) and is the greatest pro wrestler to have yet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. He later started an acting career, which included Savage playing the role of Bonesaw in Spider-Man.
