Doctors “have recommended that she be placed under medical supervision,” Buckingham Palace said on Thursday.

The longest-lived and hugely popular monarch, whose 70th anniversary the UK celebrated in June, has seen her health deteriorate since a night in hospital almost a year ago, for reasons that have not been revealed. She rarely appeared in public, her services created episodic mobility problems, and she delegated increasing responsibilities to her direct heirs, Charles and William.

“Following a further examination this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical supervision. The Queen remains comfortable and remains at Balmoral,” the palace said in a brief statement.

His family have been notified of his condition, the Press Association reported. His heir Charles, 73, arrived with his wife Camilla in Balmoral, where the Queen spends the end of summer every year.

His grandson William, second in line, was expected to be there.

Get well wishes

In her last public appearance, on Tuesday, her 15th birthday, the Queen formalizede Prime Minister in 70 years of government. She had chosen to remain in Balmoral due to her health problems, rather than return to London, where prime ministerial exchanges usually take place.

Footage released by the palace showed the sovereign smiling and leaning on a cane while shaking hands with the new ruler.

“The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news coming out of Buckingham Palace this afternoon,” Liz Truss tweeted. “My thoughts – and those of everyone in the UK – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family.”

Many political leaders have conveyed their get-well wishes to the sovereign.

The head of government spoke in parliament before the palace reported on the sovereign’s deteriorating health. She left the House of Commons after receiving a message.

On Wednesday night, the palace announced the Queen had postponed an online meeting after her doctors advised her to rest.

As early as May, his son Karl had spoken in his place for the first time in Parliament, one of his main constitutional duties.

At the beginning of June, the British celebrated the 70th reign of Elizabeth II, the world’s oldest reigning monarch, for four days. She was almost absent from this platinum anniversary, appearing only twice briefly on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in front of tens of thousands of people.

A few weeks later, on the other hand, she appeared several times for public appearances in Scotland, showed herself smiling and with a walking stick at a military parade in Edinburgh at the end of June.

The deteriorating health of the Queen, who died on February 6, 1952 at the age of 25 after the death of her father George VI. ascended the throne has revived the question of the future of the monarchy.

The institution has been rocked by a series of scandals in recent months: allegations of sexual assault in the US against his son Andrew, who ended it by paying millions of dollars, and racism allegations against the royal family’s grandson Harry and his wife Meghan Markle , who have now settled in California and are cold with the rest of the family.

The post-Elizabeth II era promises to be more complicated with Charles, much less popular. The British prefer Prince William and his wife Kate to him.
