The Queen is expected to resume her royal duties next week after a brief illness.
Buckingham Palace officials said today the queen and her husband Prince Philip plan to attend a Westminster Abbey service Monday to mark Commonwealth Day with another event scheduled later in the week.
86-year-old Elizabeth was hospitalized overnight on Sunday for treatment of gastroenteritis.
It was her first hospitalization in a decade.
Officials say the queen’s overall health remains good and she is not cutting back on her activities although taxing overseas travel has been reduced.
91-year-old Philip has been treated for heart disease in recent years.
He has said he plans to attend fewer events and to scale back his charity events.
