Hillary Clinton was all smiles as she headed to an exclusive restaurant in London – but there was no sign of her husband Bill after he was released from a California hospital following his battle with sepsis.
The former U.S. Secretary of State looked in great spirits as she arrived at Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair on Thursday evening as she entered the eatery.
Clinton, 74, wore a navy coat over a flower patterned top and silk trousers as she spoke to staff outside the seafood restaurant which is frequented by celebrities and British royalty.
But her husband Bill was nowhere to be seen, 11 days after he was released from University of California Irvine Medical Center following his sepsis scare.
Hillary’s appearance in London came two days after she held a speech at Oxford University on women’s history.

Hillary Clinton had accompanied the former President as he was discharged from the hospital on October 11 following a five-night stay receiving treatment for a urological infection that triggered a dangerous condition known as sepsis.
Last week, Bill Clinton released a statement saying he’s ‘really glad to be back home’ and ‘doing great’ as he spoke on the grounds of his upstate New York home.
‘I was so touched by the outpouring of support I received during my stay in the hospital, thanks so much,’ he said.
‘I’m on the road to recovery but I want to remind everyone out there, take the time to listen to your bodies and care for yourselves. We all have work to do, and each of us has an important role to play in life, and in the immediate future,’ he said.
‘I for one am going to do my best to be around to keep doing the most that I can for a lot longer,’ Clinton added.

Meanwhile, Hillary was seen outside Scott’s restaurant alone on Thursday night during a visit to the UK.
Earlier this week, she held a speech at the University of Oxford about women’s history to celebrate Professor Brenda Stevenson beginning her tenure at the first Hillary Rodham Clinton Chair of Women’s History at the university.
After her speech, Hillary tweeted: ‘While the new Hillary Rodham Clinton Chair in Women’s History at Oxford University is the first chair in women’s history in the world, I hope it will not be the last.’
She added: ‘It says not only to the world of academia that women’s history is worthy of study, but that women’s lives and thoughts have always mattered; that history includes not just the notable but also the marginalized and forgotten; and that no one can write us out of history again.’
Hillary’s visit to the UK comes after her loyal aide of 25 years, Huma Abedin, spoke publicly about being kissed by an anonymous US senator against her will.
Abedin, who spoke to CBS’s Norah O’Donnell for an interview that will air on Sunday, recounted an incident from the 2000s, described in her new memoir, in which a senator invited her back to his apartment in Washington DC and surprised her by kissing her.

‘I did go back to a senator’s apartment – a senator who I knew and was very comfortable with – and he kissed me, in a very shocking way,’ she told O’Donnell.
‘Because it was somebody I had known, and, frankly, trusted.’
Abedin wrote in her memoir that she attended the dinner without Hillary Clinton, then-senator from New York, but with ‘a few senators and their aides,’ according to a copy of the book obtained by The Guardian.
‘I ended up walking out with one of the senators, and soon we stopped in front of his building and he invited me in for coffee. Once inside, he told me to make myself comfortable on the couch.’
Huma Abedin, who has for the last 25 years worked for Hillary Clinton, has give her first televised interview, to CBS. The full sit-down will air on Sunday
The claims come after Hillary Clinton spent days caring for her husband while he was in hospital with sepsis.
The 42nd president, 75, was admitted into the hospital Tuesday after a urological infection caused by E. coli developed into sepsis, a life-threating reaction to an infection.
Clinton’s doctors said that a urinary tract infection developed into urosepsis.
Hillary Clinton had been with her husband at the hospital and was accompanied there by daughter Chelsea.

An aide to the former president said Bill Clinton had a urological infection that spread to his bloodstream but was on the mend and never went into septic shock, a potentially life-threatening condition.
In the years since Clinton left the White House in 2001, the former president has faced health scares.
In 2004, he underwent quadruple bypass surgery after experiencing prolonged chest pains and shortness of breath.
He returned to the hospital for surgery for a partially collapsed lung in 2005, and in 2010 he had a pair of stents implanted in a coronary artery.
He responded by embracing a largely vegan diet that saw him lose weight and report improved health.
Clinton repeatedly returned to the stump, campaigning for Democratic candidates, most notably Hillary Clinton during her failed 2008 bid for the presidential nomination.
And in 2016, as Hillary Clinton sought the White House as the Democratic nominee, her husband – by then a grandfather and nearing 70 – returned to the campaign trail.
