Buckingham Palace said Queen Elizabeth II is under medical supervision at her Balmoral residence in Scotland after doctors raised concerns about her health.
All the children of the Queen, 96, went to the Scottish castle near Aberdeen.
“Following further assessment this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical supervision,” the statement read.
“The Queen keeps quiet at Balmoral.”
Prince Charles Travel to Balmoral with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Her eldest son, William, Duke of Cambridge and second in line, arrived hours later, but Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, is still in Windsor with her children.
Prince Andrew, Duke of York, Earl and Countess of Wessex, Edward and Sophia, are also in the Scottish residence, about 40 miles west of Aberdeen.
Anne, the Princess Royal, was already in Scotland for previous commitments.
His spokesman said Prince Harry had traveled to Balmoral alone. Initially, it was reported that he would be traveling to Scotland with his wife Meghan, but soon after it was announced that the Duchess would remain in London.
The meeting is canceled
The announcement comes after the Queen withdrew from the Privy Council on Wednesday, based on recommendations from her doctors.
According to royal correspondent, Sean Coughlan, it is clear that the Queen’s health is a pressing concern, and more evident than before, that she is well beyond the difficulties of movement.
There are also caveats against unfounded speculation, such as that it may have slipped. On Tuesday she was photographed smiling while naming the new prime minister. Les Truss.
But the last-minute cancellation of what would have been a hypothetical meeting of the Privy Council – with high-ranking ministers – leaves no doubt about the fragility of the Queen’s health.
The BBC’s medical editor Fergus Walsh said: “The Palace has gone further.
For Walsh, the key phrase in the manifesto was the one that expressed the doctors’ concern.
Britain’s new prime minister, Truss, said the “entire country” was “extremely concerned”.
“My thoughts – and those of people across the UK – are with Her Majesty and her family at this time,” he added.
The Queen appointed Truss as prime minister in Balmoral on Tuesday, rather than traveling to London for the event.
During her 70-year reign, the Queen has regularly met with New Prime Minister At Buckingham Palace.
The Queen has been on summer vacation at her home in Scotland since July.
