The health of Queen Elizabeth II is causing doctors concern and they have recommended she remain under medical supervision, Buckingham Palace has announced.
“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 statement read. “The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”
It comes a day after the 96-year-old monarch cancelled a meeting of her Privy Council and was told to rest.
Prince Charles and Camilla have travelled up to Scotland to be with the Queen.
On Tuesday, the Queen broke with tradition to stay at Balmoral in Scotland to appoint new UK prime minister Liz Truss.
Normally, such an event would take place at Buckingham Palace in London.
Truss, reacting to the Buckingham House statement, 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.
The Queen celebrated her Platinum Jubilee, the 70th anniversary of her coronation, earlier this year.
