THE QUEEN has left hospital, after being admitted there over the weekend.
She was taken ill on Sunday (3 March) with a stomach bug. This is the first time she has stayed in a hospital in ten years.
The Queen has cancelled her duties for the rest of the week. However, officials at Buckingham Palace have insisted that she is "good health", and only went to hospital to make things easier for her doctors.
A spokesperson at the palace said: "She was not taken into hospital immediately after feeling the symptoms. This is simply to enable doctors to better assess her."
The 86-year-old Queen celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, after sixty years on the throne.
