Queen Elizabeth II under ‘medical supervision’

Doctors are “concerned” for her health, Buckingham Palace has said

Queen Elizabeth II under ‘medical supervision’

Queen Elizabeth II has been placed under“medical supervision” at her residence at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, Buckingham Palace announced Thursday. The British monarch’s family members have traveled to the estate to spend time with the 96-year-old.

“Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. “The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”

Buckingham Palace rarely provides updates on the Queen’s health. The last time a statement on her health came was early this year, when she was diagnosed with Covid-19.

The Queen’s eldest son and heir apparent Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are present, a Clarence House spokesperson has confirmed. Prince William, the eldest son of Prince Charles, has reportedly set off for the estate in Scotland as well.

Newly elected British PM Liz Truss said the “whole country” was “deeply concerned” over the news of The Queen’s deteriorating health.

“My thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time,” Truss stated. The development comes two days after Queen Elizabeth II hosted Truss at the Scottish Highland retreat, officially appointing her as the new prime minister.

Other senior royals are also on their way to the estate. Princess Anne, the eldest daughter of the Queen, has reportedly already arrived at Balmoral, as she happened to be in Scotland this week.

Prince Harry and Meghan, who in early 2020 decided to become “financially independent” and stopped being working members of the royal family, are traveling to Balmoral as well. The couple is currently visiting the UK and was reportedly supposed to attend a charity event in London this evening.

Under British succession rules, the crown is inherited by the firstborn child of the reigning monarch, meaning that 73-year-old Prince Charles is next in line, followed by Prince William.

The monarch has remained at Balmoral Castle on summer break since July.

    Maybe Diana will show up. And James Hewitt. To say their final farewells. She must be happy that WW3 is getting started and she can move on confident that the world will be completely destroyed thanks to the work of her family. No doubt her passing will give way to a reign of terror.

    Timing is everything. Nothing happens by chance with these people.

    Country needs a distraction; a state funeral and a coronation would do just fine. Bury the bad news about vaccine deaths and the Ukrainian war; the coming food shortages, price increases, lack of heat. Bury it all with ‘mourning’.
    How strange that Harry and Megan should happen to be in the country this week and are travelling to Balmoral. How strange that the new Prime Minister has just been installed by the Queen. The Cambridges have just moved to Windsor. Everything is meticulously planned, nothing is left to chance.

      Excellent comments danceaway, and as stevie k says, we couldn’t be in better hands. Remember the Phil the Greek joke where he wanted to come back as a deadly virus when he died, but decided to remain the parasite he’d always been. They are all parasites living on free organic food and free cancer treatments banned for us low lives. Vermin all of them. However the masses will be glued to their TVs for the foreseeable future till the latest kill shot hits them. Bitter irony. I bet the slithy toves
      are gyring and gimbling in the wabe tonight.

        Even more reason Ian to stay well away from the idiot box and virtually all radio for the next few weeks. i think they’re going to go into overdrive with the BS with everybody trying to outdo each other with their grovelling adoration.
