LONDON – Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II is under medical supervision in Scotland after doctors expressed concerns about her health, Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Thursday.

“Following a further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that they remain under medical supervision,” the statement said.

It added that the country’s tallest monarch, 96, “stayed comfortably” at Balmoral, the castle in Scotland where she spends her summers.

Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, have traveled to Balmoral, his office at Clarence House said. Prince William is also making the trip, Kensington Palace said.

The announcement came less than 24 hours after the Queen canceled a meeting with the Privy Council – its formal council of advisers, including Britain’s new leader Liz Truss – after being advised by doctors to rest.

The Queen formally appointed Truss Prime Minister at Balmoral earlier this week, the first time in her 70-year reign that she had performed ceremonial royal duty anywhere other than Buckingham Palace in London.

“The whole country will be deeply concerned this lunchtime about the news from Buckingham Palace,” Truss said on Twitter:.

“My thoughts – and the thoughts of people in our UK – are with Her Majesty the Queen and her family at the moment.”

Keir Starmer, the leader of the opposition Labor party, also tweeted that he was “deeply concerned” by the news and hoped for the Queen’s recovery.

Their messages came after work in the British Parliament was interrupted by the Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, to break the news to lawmakers.

“I know I speak for the whole House when I say that we send Her Majesty the Queen our best wishes and that she and the Royal Family are in our thoughts and prayers at this time,” he said.

The BBC, the national broadcaster, also interrupted programming to report the news.
