Doctors became concerned for the health of Britain’s 96-year-old monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, on Thursday, prompting her family to travel to Scotland to be at her side.
Buckingham Palace issued a statement saying, “Following additional evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical monitoring.”
In addition, it stated that the nation’s beloved head of state “remained comfortable” at Balmoral, the Scottish castle where she spends the summers.
The future King of Great Britain, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, visited Balmoral. All the queen’s children, including Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, and Prince Andrew, went to Balmoral by plane to be joined by Princess Anne, who was already in Scotland.
Kensington Palace announced that Prince William travelled to the new school while the Duchess of Cambridge stayed at their Windsor residence with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
A spokesman for the pair confirmed that Prince Harry and his brother were both on their way to Scotland but that Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, would not be joining them. Meghan will stay in London after the couple’s European vacation comes to a conclusion.
A meeting with the Privy Council, her formal group of advisers that includes Britain’s new leader, Liz Truss, was cancelled less than 24 hours before the rising fears for the queen’s health arose.
This week, the Queen made history by formally appointing Truss as prime minister for the first time outside of Buckingham Palace in her 70-year reign. The ceremony took place at Balmoral.
The news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime will have the entire country worried, Truss said on Twitter on Thursday.
I know that the people of the United Kingdom as a whole are thinking of Her Majesty the Queen and their family at this time.
To that end, Keir Starmer, leader of the opposition Labour Party, tweeted his “very troubled” sentiments and best wishes for the queen’s speedy recovery.
Their messages arrived as legislators in Parliament were discussing the new government’s proposal to deal with Britain’s energy issue when word of the queen’s condition first broke.
This information was delivered to Truss by a senior politician who urgently whispered it to her during the discussion. Angela Rayner, who works under Starmer, gave him a note.
A little while later, Lindsay Hoyle, the speaker of the House of Commons, was delivered an update on the situation and paused the proceedings to deliver the news to the legislators.
We express our warmest wishes to Her Majesty the Queen, and she and the royal family are in our thoughts and prayers at this time, and I know I speak for the entire House when I say that.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), the country’s primary news source, also took time out of its schedule to relay the breaking news. ET. The presenters all sported black outfits.
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby expressed that all of England was praying for the queen.
On Twitter, he prayed that “God’s presence strengthen and comfort Her Majesty, her family, and those who are caring for her in Balmoral.”
Due to “episodic mobility problems,” the queen had to cancel many events this year, including the traditional State Opening of Parliament.
When the ceremonies for her Platinum Jubilee began, Elizabeth defied decades of custom by refusing to accept the military salute at the Horse Guards Parade. Instead of applause, she was saluted from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
For the first time since she became queen in 1952, she skipped this month’s Braemar Highland Gathering, a historic athletic event in Scotland.
The medical staff at London’s King Edward VII’s Hospital recommended some rest for the monarch in October.
