JUST IN: Queen Elizabeth II under medical supervision
Buckingham Palace on Thursday said, Queen Elizabeth II of England is under medical supervision at Balmoral.
The supervision is coming after doctors became concerned for her health – The Queen’s immediate family members have been informed.
The news of the Queens condition came less than 24 hours after the queen canceled a meeting with the Privy Council — her formal body of advisers that includes Britain’s new leader, Liz Truss — after being advised by doctors to rest.
The queen formally appointed Truss as prime minister earlier this week at Balmoral, the first time in her 70-year reign that she had performed the ceremonial royal duty anywhere but at Buckingham Palace in London.
“The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime,” Truss said on Twitter.
“My thoughts — and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom — are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time.”
Keir Starmer, the leader of the opposition Labour Party, also tweeted that he was “deeply worried” by the news and was hoping for the queen’s recovery.
