Brits worry about queen – doctors sound alarm
09/08/2022, 2:18 PM
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.
When she named Liz Truss as the new British Prime Minister on Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth II smiled bravely as always. Yet she looked frighteningly thin and frail. Leaning on a stick, she extended her delicate hand to the conservative politician.
In fact, the day the 96-year-old also received Truss predecessor Boris Johnson and accepted his resignation, did not leave her untouched. So she had to cancel a virtual meeting of her Privy Council scheduled for Wednesday. “After a busy day yesterday, Her Majesty has taken the advice of her doctors to rest this afternoon,” a palace spokesman said.
This is far from the first time that the queen’s health has raised concern. Over the past few weeks and months, she’d had to cancel appointments repeatedly. It was usually said that the queen had to pass because of her “mobility problems”. Last October, she first appeared in public with a walking stick.
“Under Medical Observation”
Now, however, concerns about the queen seem to be growing. 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.” However, the Queen is feeling well and staying at her Balmoral Castle estate.
Against the background of this announcement, the Prime Minister also spoke via Twitter. The “whole country” is “deeply concerned,” Truss writes. And further: “My thoughts – and the thoughts of everyone in the UK – are now with Her Majesty The Queen and her family.”
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 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.
