- Buckingham Palace has said Queen Elizabeth II’s doctors are concerned about their health.
- The Queen’s 96-year-old children – Princess Anne and Princes Andrew, Charles and Edward – are now with the Queen at Balmoral Castle or on their way there.
Heir to the throne Prince Charles traveled to the Queen with his son Prince William and his wife, Duchess Camilla. Prince Harry will also travel to Scotland. The Queen’s grandson and wife Meghan, who lives in the United States, had been due to attend a charity event in London on Thursday night, but they were cancelled.
Duchess Kate is staying with the kids
While Prince William and other family members travel to the Queen’s summer residence, Balmoral Castle, to ensure the Queen’s health, Duchess Kate remains in Windsor. The Palestinian News Agency (PA) reported that she is looking after the couple’s three children, who started their first day at the new school on Thursday.
The palace had announced earlier that the 96-year-old queen had been placed under medical observation to ensure her health. “Following further assessment this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical observation,” a palace spokesman said. Nevertheless, the Queen felt comfortable and stayed in her country house, Balmoral Castle, it was said.
Concerns about Queen Elizabeth II have gathered at Buckingham Palace in London, the Queen’s residence in Windsor and outside Balmoral’s summer residence in Scotland. And the British News Agency reported that about a hundred people gathered in front of the palace in London when it rained on Thursday. And the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported that some of the tourists burst into tears. The first people to come were also to Windsor, the Queen’s residence. In front of Balmoral Castle, where doctors are currently caring for the 96-year-old queen, photos showed curious people behind police barricades.
Worry about politics too
Prime Minister Liz Truss expressed concern. “The entire country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this afternoon,” Truss wrote on Twitter, adding: “My thoughts and those of people across the UK are with Her Majesty and her family on this matter.” “
Parliament Speaker Lindsey Hoyle adjourned the afternoon session of the House of Commons to brief MPs. “I know I speak for the entire Chamber when I say that we send our best wishes to Her Majesty and that our thoughts and prayers are with her and the Royal Family at this moment.”
On Wednesday only the Queen had to cancel her participation in a virtual meeting of the Privy Council. The day before, I received Boris Johnson, who tendered his resignation, and immediately afterwards, I received Liz Truss, who had been appointed as the new prime minister. A spokesperson said it was a full day to justify the cancellation on Wednesday.
Even the audience’s location with Truss and before that Johnson was extraordinary. The Queen usually receives outgoing heads of government and entrants at her main residence, Buckingham Palace in London. But because she was finding it increasingly difficult to walk, the two politicians traveled to Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands, where the Queen traditionally resides from July to September.
