The Queen is ‘under medical supervision at Balmoral’.

Buckingham Palace revealed today that the Queen is under medical supervision after doctors became concerned about her health this morning, as the Prince of Wales, Camilla and the Duke of Cambridge will be with the 96-year-old king.

Her spokesman said Her Majesty’s immediate family members have been informed of the slowdown, which has led to her two heirs – Charles and William – going to bed amid mounting concerns for the Queen’s health.

A royal family spokesman said: “Following further assessment this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical supervision. The Queen is still at ease and at Balmoral.

Minutes before the statement, new Prime Minister Liz Truss was handed a memorandum in the House of Commons informing her of the development as she revealed her plans to reduce energy bills for the next two years.

Ms Truss said: “The entire country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace at lunchtime,” adding, “My thoughts – and those of people across the UK – are with Her Majesty and her family at this time.”

Yesterday the Queen was forced to postpone a meeting of the Privy Council at the last minute on the advice of doctors. After a busy day on Tuesday, during which Boris Johnson and Liz Truss greeted at Balmoral, in addition to carrying out other light errands, the 96-year-old was asked to rest.

A Privy Council was due to take place about yesterday evening, when the new Prime Minister was due to be sworn in as First Lord of the Treasury, and Cabinet Ministers had been sworn in in their roles and made Special Advisers, if not already appointed. one in the past.

There was a flurry of activity in the House of Commons this lunchtime as concerns about the Queen were raised to the Prime Minister. Nadim Al-Zahawi had handed her a paper that she had read and placed

Speaker Sir Lindsey Hoyle interrupted SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford’s speech during the power debate to tell MPs: ‘I know I speak for the entire House of Parliament when I say we send our best wishes to Her Majesty and that she and the Royal Family are in our thoughts and prayers at this moment. “If there is anything else, we will update the house accordingly,” he added.

It comes after a string of health problems for the increasingly vulnerable sovereign, who advised against travel to London from her home in the Highlands this week to accept the outgoing prime minister’s resignation and the appointment of Miss Truss.

It was the first time in her 70-year reign that the Queen appointed a Prime Minister at Balmoral.

The two politicians made the 1,000-mile round trip from London rather than make the Queen, who has had occasional travel problems since October, return from Scotland.

Buckingham Palace said there were no constitutional issues regarding the postponement of the procedures, which would be rearranged, and that the decision to encourage Her Majesty to rest did not include a hospital stay.

But the decision to postpone the virtual meeting will inevitably lead to renewed concern for the Queen’s health.

Last night, a palace spokesperson said: “After a full day yesterday, Her Majesty this afternoon accepted the doctors’ advice to rest.

“This means that the Privy Council meeting that was scheduled for this evening will be rearranged.”

The Queen was photographed on Tuesday smiling and alert, but still vulnerable, using a cane and severe bruising on her hands as an inevitable result of her years ahead.

It was the first time she was seen in public for 47 days, while she was enjoying her well-earned annual vacation at Royal Deeside. In addition to meeting Mr Johnson and Miss Truss on Tuesday, the Queen also had another duty afterwards: to invest her outgoing Communications Secretary Donal McCabe with the badge of a lieutenant in the Victorian monarchy – a tribute in the king’s personal gift of service to the royal family.

She also handled several red boxes of papers, while a number of guests were seen leaving the castle before the first masses began. The Queen often has family and friends to stay over during her annual leave, and she is said to have ‘flooded’ the company this year – despite her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, who are not in the UK for a while. Visiting from California.

Informed sources have repeatedly said that the monarch is “old and not ill,” and one of the people who recently saw her described her as “in excellent condition.” But last week she chose not to attend another key event on the royal calendar, the Braemar Gathering – the most famous event of the Highland Games.

Meanwhile, earlier in the year, the Prince of Wales stood on her behalf at the formal opening of Parliament.

She secretly spent a night in hospital last October undergoing tests, then was under doctors’ orders to rest for the next three months, and missed Sunday’s memorial service in London and the Cop26 climate change talks in Glasgow.

The Queen, who lost Prince Philip – her husband of 73 years – in April last year, contracted Covid in February and suffered from cold-like symptoms, but said the virus made her “extremely tired and exhausted”.

As the country’s longest-reigning monarch, she was able to make two short appearances at her platinum jubilee celebrations in June.
