LONDON, March 4 (UPI) --
Britain's Queen Elizabeth
II has been released from the London hospital where she was treated during the weekend for a stomach illness, palace officials said.
"The queen has left The King Edward VII's hospital, having been admitted briefly as part of the assessment of symptoms of gastroenteristis," Buckingham Palace said in a statement Monday afternoon, local time.
Although the 86-year-old monarch is feeling better than she was when she was admitted to the hospital Sunday, all official engagements for this week will either be postponed or canceled, People.com said.
