La Baronne Margaret Tatcher quitte l’hôpital

Baroness Thatcher Lady Thatcher was too ill to attend a Downing St reception for her 85th birthday

Former prime minister Baroness Thatcher is to leave hospital on Monday, nearly two weeks after she was admitted.

Her spokesman said doctors were "very pleased" with her progress – she was admitted on 19 October after suffering from flu.

The Conservative peer fell ill a few weeks ago and was unable to attend a Downing Street reception to mark her 85th birthday.

She is said to be in good spirits but will take things slowly at home.

Lady Thatcher, who was PM from 1979 to 1990, was admitted to hospital after suffering from the flu and a condition affecting her muscles.

Her son, Sir Mark Thatcher, said a few days after she was admitted she was "chirpy" and had been talking about the spending review.

In 2005, the former PM was advised by doctors that she should not make public speeches in the wake of some minor strokes.

But she still attends some public functions, including a recent address by the Pope during his state visit to the UK.
