Buckingham Palace released a statement Thursday morning, saying after “further evaluation” the doctors for Queen Elizabeth II are “concerned for Her Majesty’s health.”
The statement read:
“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 Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”
The Queen, who is 96 years old, postponed her Privy Council meeting after being advised by doctors to rest.
It was reported earlier in the week that the Queen had a meeting with Liz Truss, after which she appointed Truss to form a new administration as the new leader of the Conservative Party. She met with outgoing PM Boris Johnson, who offered his resignation earlier on Tuesday, thereby ending his time in office.
The meeting between the Queen, Truss, and Johnson would’ve occurred in Buckingham Palace, but the ceremony was held in Balmoral Castle in Scotland due to the monarch’s “mobility issues”.
“The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime,” Truss tweeted Thursday.
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.
