LONDON (AP) — British media say Queen Elizabeth II will leave the hospital Monday afternoon after a one-day stay caused by a stomach ailment.

BBC, Sky News and Britain's Press Association said Monday that the queen will leave King Edward VII Hospital later in the day. It had been announced earlier that she would stay for two days because of gastroenteritis.

The 86-year-old queen fell ill Friday and was being treated at Windsor Castle until Sunday, when she was moved to a central London hospital as a precaution.

It is the first time she has been hospitalized in a decade. Palace officials say she is otherwise in good health.
