Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden was taken to the hospital late Friday night, the Swedish Royal Court has announced this morning.

The Royal Court has said that Her Majesty has suffered from a cold recently and was taken to Karolinska University Hospital in Solna due to dizziness. The 73-year-old celebrated her birthday with her family yesterday at Drottningholm Palace.

In the press release, the Royal Court said, “The Queen has been taken to hospital late last night. The Queen has had a cold for a time and was hit during Friday evening of dizziness. The Queen is still in hospital for observation and sampling and feels well under the circumstances.”

Her daughter, Princess Madeleine was at Her Majesty’s side overnight and travelled with her to Karolinska University Hospital.

According to Expressen, she was taken to the hospital after the dizziness incident occurred “in connection with the Drottningholm Palace Theatre’s concert in Drottningholm Palace Church.”

The Royal Court has said that Queen Silvia will remain in the hospital under doctor’s orders for “observation and sampling” according to Margareta Thorgren, the Royal Court’s Director of Information and Press Department. She also said that Her Majesty is doing well under the circumstances. At the moment, it is not known when the Queen will be released to return home.

Queen Silvia and the rest of the Swedish Royal Family do not have any more events scheduled for the remainder of 2016.

Queen Silvia was born Silvia Sommerlath in Heidelberg, Germany, on 23 December 1943 to a German father and Brazilian mother. She married King Carl XVI Gustaf on 19 June 1976 after meeting at the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich. They have three children and five grandchildren.

          She is not guilty of the sins of her father. If I had to carry responsibility for all the stupid things my family members did, I might as well just go lock myself in a room for the rest of my life!
