Elizabeth Taylor has travelled to Britain to "say goodbye" to relatives, according to reports in America.
The ailing Hollywood legend uses a wheelchair and is thought to be suffering from congestive heart failure.
Reports claim she is in such poor health that she has visited family members in the UK to bid them farewell.
New York gossip columnist Cindy Adams says: "She may now be sort of putting things in order. Accompanied by aides, Elizabeth flew to spend time with her British family and has only just returned home.
"What you're being told is: 'It was as though she was feeling she wanted to say goodbye to them'."
Taylor was born in Hampstead, London to American parents in 1932. Her family returned to the US shortly after World War II began, but has always held both British and American passports.
