Zainab Al-Hilli's state of health is understood to have improved in recent days, allowing her to travel back to the UK.
Zainab left France this morning at around 8am. Police from Britain accompanied the little girl.
Her departure follows that of her younger sister, Zeena, who returned to the UK last week after escaping the brutal attack unscathed. The four-year-old survived by cowering under her mother's skirts but she was only discovered eight hours after the killings.
