'Permanent Memory Loss' for Margaret
- Princess faces brain scan after stroke fears

FEARS were growing today over the future of Princess Margaret after it emerged that the Queen's sister is suffering from severe brain damage.

"The princess has suffered a permanent loss of her short-term memory," said the BBC's royal watcher Jennie Bond. "Conversation with her is not always easy now." Princess Margaret, 70, is now in the King Edward VII hospital in central London where doctors have put her on a food drip after learning she had not eaten for two weeks.

Tests, including a full brain scan, are currently being taken on the princess to determine the full extent of her illnesses. Other hard information is difficult to come by, but royal insiders say that the chances are that last week Margaret had a more severe stroke than first thought.
