Queen Elizabeth II health: Doctors ‘concerned’ palace says

Members of the royal family are urgently traveling to Scotland to be with the 96-year-old monarch.

LONDON, United Kingdom – Queen Elizabeth II has been placed under medical supervision because doctors are “concerned for Her Majesty’s health,” Buckingham Palace said on Thursday, as members of the royal family traveled to Scotland to visit the 96-year-old monarch to be.

The palace declined to give further details on the seriousness of the Queen’s condition, but there were other worrying signs as Prime Minister Liz Truss said “the whole country will be deeply concerned by the news” and other politicians expressed their concern expressed.

The palace announcement came a day after the Queen canceled a virtual meeting of her Privy Council when doctors advised her to rest after a full day of events on Tuesday when she formally asked Truss to become Prime Minister.

“Following further examinations this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical supervision,” a palace spokesman said on condition of anonymity, in line with usual policy. “The Queen stays comfortable and on Balmoral.”

Prince Charles, heir to the throne, is already with the Queen at Balmoral Castle, her summer residence in Scotland, along with his wife Camilla and sister Princess Anne. Prince William, Charles’ eldest son, is also on his way to Balmoral, as are his brother Prince Harry, his wife Meghan, Prince Andrew and the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

The House of Windsor Assembly comes just three months after people across Britain paused over a long bank holiday weekend to celebrate the Queen’s 70th year on the throne. While crowds of cheering, flag-waving fans filled the streets around Buckingham Palace with four days of celebration, the Queen herself made only two brief appearances on the palace balcony to wave to her subjects.

Elizabeth has increasingly handed off chores to Charles and other members of the royal family in recent months as she recovered from a bout of COVID-19, started using a cane and struggled to get around.

“The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this afternoon,” Truss said on Twitter.

“My thoughts – and the thoughts of the people of our UK – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time.”

Ever since Elizabeth ascended the throne after her father’s death on February 6, 1952, she has been a symbol of stability as Britain negotiated the end of empire, the dawn of the information age and the mass migration that transformed the country into a multicultural society.

Throughout it all, the Queen has forged a connection with the nation through a seemingly endless series of public appearances, as she opened libraries, inaugurated hospitals and bestowed honors on deserving citizens.

She worked steadily into the twilight of her reign. But the death of Prince Philip, her husband of more than 70 years, in April last year reminded the UK that the reign of the Queen, the only monarch most of her subjects have ever known, is finite.

This truth was the subtext of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, when newspapers, television news programs and even the palace walls were filled with images of Elizabeth as she evolved from a glamorous young queen wearing a crown and diamonds into the sort of global grandmother known for her was ubiquitous handbag and love for horses and corgis.

Charles took center stage throughout the celebrations as he stood up for his mother and demonstrated that he was ready to take on her mantle.

Dressed in a ceremonial scarlet tunic and bearskin hat, he surveyed the troops during the Queen’s Birthday Parade on the opening day of the Jubilee. The next day he was the last guest to enter St. Paul’s Cathedral and was seated at the front of the church for a thanksgiving service in honor of the Queen. At a star-studded concert outside Buckingham Palace, he brought the biggest tribute to the woman he addressed as “Your Majesty, Mommy.”
