Queen Elizabeth II, 96, under medical supervision, doctors concerned

As per latest report, Queen Elizabeth II is under medical supervision and doctors are “concerned for Her Majesty’s health,” according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

“The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral,” the palace said in a statement.

The doctors have recommended that the 96-year-old monarch remain at her castle in Scotland under medical supervision.

Prince Charles, the Queen’s eldest and next in line to the throne, has reportedly traveled to Balmoral with his wife Camilla. Prince William, the Queen’s grandson, is also on his way to Scotland.

The announcement comes a day after the monarch canceled a virtual meeting of her Privy Council and was told to rest.

The day before she had been pictured appointing Liz Truss as UK’s new prime minister at the Balmoral Castle.

The new UK prime minister, Liz Truss, has tweeted that her thoughts were with the Royal Family. She formally took office following a meeting with the queen on Tuesday, which unusually took place in Balmoral rather than Buckingham Palace in London.

The Queen, who is Britain’s longest reigning monarch, celebrated her Platinum Jubilee earlier this year, marking 70 years of service. Her husband Philip, the longest-serving royal consort in history, died last year aged 99.

Proceedings in the House of Commons were briefly interrupted by a statement from the Speaker Lindsay Hoyle, while the BBC interrupted its regular programming to relay the news.

“I know I speak on behalf of the entire House when I say that we send our best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen and that she and the Royal Family are in our thoughts and prayers at this moment,” Hoyle said.
