LAST MINUTE: Queen Elizabeth II's doctors are "concerned" about her health

The 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth II’s doctors are “concerned” about her health and have recommended that she be placed under medical supervision at her Scottish castle of Balmoral, Buckingham Palace said on Thursday. So close relatives traveled to be by his side.

“Following further assessment this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical surveillance,” it said. His family was informed of the situation, the British agency PA specified, while Prime Minister Liz Truss expressed the country’s concern over the news.

The queen, Britain’s longest-serving sovereign and the world’s longest-serving monarch, has been suffering from what Buckingham Palace has called “episodic mobility problems” since late last year.

She has been forced to scale back her public engagements since then and on Wednesday canceled a planned virtual meeting with senior ministers after her doctors advised her to rest.

The day before, she had been photographed naming Liz Truss as the country’s new prime minister at her residence in Scotland, Balmoral Castle.

“The queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral,” the statement said.

A palace source said close relatives had been informed and played down speculation the monarch had suffered a fall.

Truss said the entire country would be deeply concerned by the news.

“My thoughts, and the thoughts of people across the UK, are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time,” he said.

Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons, interrupted an energy debate in Parliament to send her best wishes to the monarch.
