Queen Elizabeth II is under medical supervision.
This morning, Buckingham Palace released a statement about the monarch's current state, saying, "Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen's doctors are concerned for Her Majesty's health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision."
She is currently resting at Balmoral Castle, her residence in Scotland.
A spokesperson for the Sussexes tells BAZAAR.com that Prince Harry is on his way to Scotland. Prince Charles and Princess Anne are already at Balmoral, and Prince William, Prince Edward, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, are now traveling there. Prince Andrew is also traveling up separately.
Britain's Prime Minister, Liz Truss, wrote on Twitter, "The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime. My thoughts - and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom - are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time."
The queen, 96, participated in various engagements and meetings earlier this week, and last night, Buckingham Palace released a statement on her health. "After a full day yesterday, Her Majesty has this afternoon accepted doctors' advice to rest. This means that the Privy Council meeting that had been due to take place this evening will be rearranged," it read.
The news of the monarch's declining health started earlier this year. In February, she tested positive for COVID-19, but recovered quite quickly and was back on her feet soon after. Then, the palace confirmed she had been suffering from ongoing mobility problems.
Due to those issues, she skipped various official events throughout the year, including the Commonwealth Day church service in March, the State Opening of British Parliament in May, and a service at St. Paul's Cathedral during her Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.
At the time, the palace said that following her attendance at the Trooping the Colour parade, the queen "did experience some discomfort" and would prefer to rest rather than travel long distances. A royal source additionally told BAZAAR.com, "Her Majesty enjoyed today immensely, but episodic mobility issues were experienced during the course of the day."
