A source also spoke to the international news network and said the queen's one night stay in hospital was because the doctors wanted to take a more cautious approach and that she's back at her desk but will only be taking up lighter tasks.

Queen Elizabeth is, however, expected to attend the Climate Change conference happening in Glasgow later this month.
