Princess Margaret leaves hospital after tests

Thursday, November 1, 2001

LONDON (AP) -- Princess Margaret, the 71-year-old sister of Queen Elizabeth II, left a hospital Thursday after undergoing tests.

Buckingham Palace has declined to give any details on why Margaret was admitted Monday to the King Edward VII Hospital. British press reports said the princess was being tested for possible stomach problems.

A palace spokeswomen, who declined to be identified, said Monday that there was "no cause for alarm."

Margaret, who suffered strokes in March and in 1998, left the private hospital in central London in a wheelchair, wearing dark glasses.
