Brits worry about Queen Elizabeth II’s family trips to Balmoral

Queen Elizabeth II’s health has not been great for quite some time. Now, however, even the new British Prime Minister, Liz Truss, says “the whole country” is “deeply concerned”. Doctors have been monitoring the 96-year-old since morning. The family travels to her in Scotland.

UK concerned for Queen: Her doctors are “concerned” about Queen Elizabeth II’s health, Buckingham Palace said. “Following a further assessment this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical observation,” it said. However, the Queen is feeling well and staying at her Balmoral Castle estate.

The Queen’s relatives are said to have been informed. Crown Prince Charles and his son Prince William are on their way to Balmoral Castle in Scotland, where the Queen currently resides. Charles will be accompanied by his wife, Duchess Camilla, the palace confirmed. Prince Harry and his wife are also going to visit the Queen in Scotland, it was said.

British Prime Minister Liz Truss said the whole country was “deeply concerned” by the Queen’s news. “My thoughts – and those of everyone in the UK – are now with Her Majesty the Queen and her family,” Truss tweeted.

House of Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle said: “We send our best wishes to Her Majesty The Queen, she and the Royal Family are in our thoughts and prayers at this time.”

The day before, the 96-year-old had canceled a meeting of her Privy Council advisory board on the advice of her doctors. “After a busy day yesterday, Her Majesty has taken the advice of her doctors to rest this afternoon,” a palace spokesman said.

The Queen accepted the resignation of former Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday and appointed his successor Liz Truss – contrary to tradition – not at Buckingham Palace, but at Balmoral Castle, which she did not want to leave for the ceremony due to health reasons. She had smiled bravely, as always, when she’d met Truss. Yet she looked frighteningly thin and frail. Leaning on a stick, she extended her delicate hand to the conservative politician.

Elizabeth II has long suffered from health problems and has greatly reduced the number of public appearances. Over the past year, she has been increasingly represented by her son Prince Charles. He first replaced her at the opening of parliament in May and read in her place the government program for the next session.

During the four-day celebration in June for her 70th anniversary, the Queen showed her tens of thousands of followers only twice briefly on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. However, in all public appearances she was always smiling and in a good mood.
