Doctors sound the alarm: concern for Queen Elizabeth II - family travels to Balmoral

Queen Elizabeth II's health has not been the best for quite some time. Now, however, even the new British Prime Minister, Liz Truss, is declaring that "the whole country" is "deeply concerned". Doctors have been monitoring the 96-year-old monarch since morning. The family travels to her in Scotland.

Britain Concerned for the Queen: Her doctors are "concerned" about Queen Elizabeth II's health, Buckingham Palace said. "Following a further assessment this morning, the Queen's doctors are concerned about Her Majesty's health and have recommended that she remains under medical observation," it said. However, the Queen feels comfortable and is staying at her country estate, Balmoral Castle, it said.

It is said that the Queen's relatives have been informed. Crown Prince Charles and his son Prince William are on their way to Balmoral Castle in Scotland, where the Queen is currently staying. Charles will be accompanied by his wife, Duchess Camilla, the palace confirmed. Prince Harry and his wife are also going to the Queen in Scotland, it was said.

British Prime Minister Liz Truss said the whole country was "deeply concerned" by the news from the Queen. "My thoughts - and the thoughts of everyone in the UK - are now with Her Majesty The Queen and her family," Truss wrote on Twitter.

House of Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle said: "We send our best wishes to Her Majesty The Queen, she and the Royal Family are in our thoughts and prayers at this moment."

The day before, the 96-year-old had canceled a meeting of her Privy Council advisory board on the advice of her doctors. "After a busy day yesterday, Her Majesty accepted the advice of her doctors to rest this afternoon," a palace spokesman said.

On Tuesday, the Queen accepted the resignation of the previous Prime Minister Boris Johnson and appointed his successor Liz Truss – contrary to tradition, not in Buckingham Palace, but at Balmoral Castle, which she did not want to leave for the ceremony for health reasons. She'd smiled bravely, as always, when she'd met Truss. Nevertheless, she appeared frighteningly gaunt and fragile. Leaning on a cane, she extended her delicate hand to the conservative politician.

Elizabeth II has been suffering from health problems for a long time and has greatly reduced the number of her public appearances. In the past year, she has been represented more and more often by her son Prince Charles. He replaced her for the first time at the opening of Parliament in May and read out the government's program for the coming session in her place.

During the four-day celebrations in June for her 70th jubilee, the Queen only showed her tens of thousands of followers twice briefly on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. In all public appearances, however, she was always smiling and in a good mood.
