In England all the alarms have been raised by the state of health of Queen Elizabeth II. Buckingham Palace has issued a statement in which it ensures that the doctors who treat the 96-year-old sovereign have shown themselves this Thursday “concerned” about his health and have recommended that he remain under medical supervision.
Even so, it is ensured that Elizabeth II is “comfortable” and is still at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The Prince carlosheir to the British crown, is at Balmoral Castle with his mother.
The Prince of Wales traveled to Balmoral accompanied by his wife, StretcherDuchess of Cornwall, and Prince William, her eldest son and second in line to the throne, is also moving to the castle.
The Speaker of the House of Commons, Lindsay Hoyle, interrupted a parliamentary address to declare: “I know I speak for the entire House when I say that we send our best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen and that she and the royal family are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. “If there is anything else, we will inform the House,” he added.
British Prime Minister Liz Truss has assured on her Twitter profile that “the whole country will be deeply concerned on the Buckingham Palace news at lunchtime. My thoughts, and the thoughts of people across the UK, are with Her Majesty the Queen and her family at this time.”
The last time she was seen at a public event was two days ago, when she received at Balmoral both the outgoing Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, as well as his successor in office, Liz Truss, to whom he entrusted the task of forming the new British government. In the images released, the queen is seen smiling, leaning on a cane, wearing glasses and visibly thinner than her on other occasions.
This Wednesday, the queen had to suspend a meeting scheduled this afternoon of his Privy Council on medical recommendation to rest. “After a busy day yesterday, Her Majesty has accepted this afternoon the doctors’ recommendation to rest,” said a spokesman for the British sovereign in a brief statement.
Last week, a spokesman advanced several days in advance that Elizabeth II would not leave her Scottish residence on the occasion of the change of Government in order to avoid last-minute changes to plans in the event of mobility problems.
Elizabeth II celebrated her Platinum Jubilee this year, which commemorated her 70 years on the throne, a record in British history.
