Queen Elizabeth II Placed Under Medical Examination After Doctors Raise Concern Over Her Health

Medical experts have raised concerns about the state of health of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and have advised that she remains under medical supervision, Buckingham Palace said on Thursday.

 

Family members have besieged Balmoral Castle, the queen’s royal residence in Scotland after they were informed of the development.

 
“Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

It added that the queen, 96, remains comfortable and is at Balmoral.

Prince Charles, the Duke of Cornwall, and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, have now arrived at Balmoral, according to ITV.

The queen’s other three children, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward, as well as her grandson Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, have also arrived.

The queen, who is the world’s longest-serving monarch, has been said to be suffering from deteriorating health for the past several months, with doctors citing ongoing “episodic mobility problems.”

She has been forced to cut back on her public engagements since October last year after she spent a night in the hospital.

On Tuesday, the queen broke with tradition and appointed her 15th prime minister from Balmoral rather than traveling to Buckingham Palace, as is typical. She was also forced to cancel a planned virtual meeting with senior ministers after being advised to rest by her doctors.

Britain’s new Prime Minister Liz Truss, who met with the queen Tuesday, said her thoughts were with her and her family.

“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.

Keir Starmer, the leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party, said he was deeply concerned about the news.

“Along with the rest of the country, I am deeply worried by the news from Buckingham Palace this afternoon,” he said in a statement.

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she was “profoundly concerned” and Wales’ First Minister Mark Drakeford sent his best wishes on behalf of the people of Wales.

Elizabeth has been queen of Britain and more than a dozen other countries since 1952. Earlier this year she celebrated her 70th year on the throne.
