The Queen’s Health: What We Know So Far

Monarch’s four children are at Balmoral as Buckingham Palace says doctors are concerned.

  • The Queen, who is 96, has been put under medical supervision after doctors became concerned about her health.
  • In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “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.”
  • Her four children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, as well as her grandson Prince William, are with her at Balmoral Castle, in Scotland.
  •  The Duchess of Cambridge has remained in Windsor as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are in school.
  • Prince Harry, who was coincidentally in the UK, is also travelling to Scotland. His wife, the Duchess of Sussex, is remaining in London but will not attend the WellChild awards event as originally planned.
  • An RAF plane carrying the Duke of Cambridge, the Duke of York and the Earl and Countess of Wessex landed at Aberdeen airport, about an hour from Balmoral, just after 4pm.
  • Expressions of concern have been flooding in. The prime minister, Liz Truss, said: “The whole country will be deeply concerned.” The archbishop of Canterbury said his “prayers and the prayers of the people across the Church of England and the nation” were with Her Majesty.
  • Concerns about the Queen’s health emerged in October when she cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland. Her mobility has prevented her attended some events this year and she continues to use a walking stick.
  • Although she met Boris Johnson and Liz Truss on Tuesday, they travelled to Balmoral in a break with the tradition of meeting outgoing and incoming prime ministers at Buckingham Palace.
  • She also pulled out of an online meeting of the privy council on Wednesday after being advised by doctors to rest.
