Queen Hospitalized

The Queen has been admitted into the hospital, says Buckingham Palace. It has been 10 long years ago since the Queen was last hospitalized.


The Queen is in hospital “as a precaution” where she is being assessed for symptoms of gastroenteritis, Buckingham Palace says.

The palace is saying the Queen, 86, was transported to King Edward VII Hospital in London.

All official engagements for this week, including the Queen’s trip to Rome, will be either cancelled or postponed.

The Queen was in good spirits when she was driven to hospital by private car on Sunday. Earlier in the day she conducted a medal presentation at the Palace.


The BBC’s royal correspondent Peter Hunt says the Queen will remain in hospital under observation for around two days. The Queen was last in hospital 10 years ago, our correspondent adds. Stomach liningNews of her illness emerged on Saturday after she was forced to cancel a trip to Swansea to mark St David’s Day.


Gastroenteritis causes inflammation of the stomach lining and intestines. The infection can be transmitted through contact with an infected person or contaminated food and drink. Symptoms can include vomiting, fever and stomach ache.


The Queen had been due to spend two days in Rome with the Duke of Edinburgh next weekend, at the invitation of Italy’s President Giorgio Napolitano. It is not now clear whether the visit will be re-scheduled.


Did Brad Pitt Order The Hit?

A world-renown paparazzi who shot pictures of Brad Pitt, Rihanna, Beyonce and countless others has been found dead of a single shot to the head.


Daniele Lo Presti, 42, probably had lots of enemies, most recently, Brad Pitt…


Presti’s body was located by his friends after he didn’t show up for a run. He was found with a single gunshot wound to his head and that’s why police aren’t ruling out the chance he was assassinated.

“He was killed with a single shot from a small caliber weapon. It could be he fell foul of a Mafia crime family or someone else who really didn’t want their picture taken,” a police spokesperson says.

Lo Presti was found outside his home, lying face down in a pool of blood.

“Lo Presti was a well-known paparazzo photographer and his scoops embarrassed many people. We are not ruling out a connection between his work and his death, and we are looking through all his most recent assignments as well as phone and computer records,” the spokesperson further says.

His last shoot was of Brad Pitt filming “World War Z,” as he was talking to his personal assistant, a beautiful brunette.


Pitt was accused of cheating on his partner Angelina Jolie with the brunette, and it is said that these rumors deeply upset Angelina. Source.

Snowmobile Horror As 6 Die In Alpine Ravine

Six Russians vacationing in an Italian Alpine ski village were killed after the sled they were towing by a snowmobile hit a barrier and flew over into a low level area.


ROME (USATODAY) — Six Russians were killed and two seriously injured when the snowmobile and sled they were riding veered off an Italian Alpine ski slope at night, slammed into a barrier and flew through the air into a ravine.

The accident occurred Friday night and when rescuers arrived at the scene six of the victims were found dead on the slope of Mount Cermis, in the Trentino-Alto Adige region of northeast Italy, said Cavalese Fire Department Cmdr. Roberto Marchi.

“It is clear that the fundamental cause is recklessness and imprudence,” Marchi told Sky TG24 TV in an interview on the slope Saturday. It is labeled “pista nera” or black ski run, indicating a level of steepness and other difficult conditions suitable only for the most experienced skiers.


The accident comes only one week after a 10-year-old girl lost her life after sledding into a newly installed barrier at a Las Vegas area ski slope.
