Queen leaves hospital
LONDON – Queen Elizabeth II returned home Monday after receiving treatment for a stomach infection that prompted a brief and rare hospitalization for the 86-year-old monarch.
A smiling Elizabeth walked unassisted out of King Edward VII Hospital on Monday afternoon, bidding farewell to staff outside. She was then driven away in a motorcade.
“The queen has left the King Edward VII’s Hospital, having been admitted briefly as part of the assessment of symptoms of gastroenteritis,” the palace said.
