As Mamas Uncut previously reported, on September 6, Queen Elizabeth II met with the United Kingdom’s newly elected Prime Minister Liz Truss. Less than 48 hours later, her family, her doctors, and the world became concerned with her health.
According to earlier reports, her Majesty remained in Scotland under medical supervision. In a statement released Thursday morning by Buckingham Palace, Elizabeth was resting in Balmoral castle.
“Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” the statement said. Balmoral is where the Queen often spends her summers.
After doctors revealed their concern for Queen Elizabeth, who is 96 years old, her son and her grandson, the two next in line for the thrown traveled to Balmoral to be with her Majesty. Prince Harry, who was in London with Meghan Markle for an engagement also travelled to Scotland for one final goodbye.
Just two days ago, Queen Elizabeth met with Truss at Balmoral where she was asked by the Queen to form a new government following Boris Johnson’s resignation. However, while meeting with Truss on September 6, she announced that she would not meet with the Privy Council, her body of advisers, after doctors advised her to rest on September 7.
Truss later took to Twitter to respond to the reports of Elizabeth’s failing health. She wrote, “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,” Truss continued.
