Buckingham Palace, the home of the Queen of the UK, announced in a statement on Thursday that Queen Elizabeth II’s doctors are “concerned” about her health and have advised that she remain under medical observation.
The statement reportedly came a day after the 96-year-old queen was advised to rest and canceled a session of her Privy Council.
Since the end of last year, the queen, Britain’s longest-ruling monarch, and the world’s oldest sovereign has had mobility issues according to Buckingham Palace.
The queen, according to the palace, stayed at Scotland castle where she was said to be “comfortable.” Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, and other members of her immediate family reportedly traveled to be by her side.
“My thoughts — and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom — are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time,” the newly elected British Prime Minister, Liz Truss wrote on Twitter.
