Queen Elizabeth II Under Medical Supervision – Buckingham Palace
A statement coming out from Buckingham Palace says the Queen of England II who is 96 is currently under medical supervision after doctors became concerned for her health
The statement on Thursday arrived a day after the 96-year-old monarch revoked a meeting of her Privy Council and was told to relax.
The palace said the queen was “comfortable” and remained at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The immediate family traveled to be by her side, including Prince Charles, heir to the British throne.
The queen, Britain’s longest-reigning sovereign and the world’s oldest monarch, has suffered from what Buckingham Palace has called “episodic mobility problems” since the end of last year.
“Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” the palace said in a statement.
On Tuesday, the queen supervised the ceremonial handover of power to new United Kingdom Prime Minister Liz Truss at her summer residence at Balmoral Castle.
Truss said, “the whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime”.
“My thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time,” she said on Twitter.
