Doctors are “concerned” about Queen Elizabeth II’s health and have placed her under medical supervision, Buckingham Palace announced on Thursday.
“Following further assessment this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about the Queen’s health and have recommended that she continue to be under medical supervision,” the Palace said in a statement. “The Queen remains relaxed and at Balmoral.”
The Queen’s eldest son and heir Prince Charles is accompanying her, while other families including Princes William and Harry have also made their way to Scotland.
Prime Minister Liz Truss said in a statement, “The whole country will be deeply interested in news from Buckingham Palace this lunch.”
“My thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our UK – are of the Queen and her family at this time,” Truss said.
The Queen was last seen publicly on Tuesday at her Scottish residence, where she formally invited Truss to become prime minister. In photos of the meeting, the 96-year-old monarch is seen leaning on a cane and smiling for the camera.
