Prayers and well wishes have flooded in from across the political spectrum as Queen Elizabeth II, 96, is placed “under medical supervision” by her doctors, who are “concerned” for her health.
Senior royals are reported to be en route or already present at her estate in Balmoral including Charles, Duke of Rothesay, as the heir-apparent is typically styled in Scotland.
“My thoughts — and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom — are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time,” commented Prime Minister Liz Truss, invited to form a new administration by the Queen just days ago.
“Along with the rest of the country, I am deeply worried by the news from Buckingham Palace this afternoon,” said Sir Keir Starmer, leader of the opposition Labour Party.
“My thoughts are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time, and I join everyone across the United Kingdom in hoping for her recovery,” he added.
