Prime Minister Liz Truss said “the whole country will be deeply concerned” at the news The Queen is under medical supervision.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “Following further inquiries this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical supervision.
“The Queen stays comfortable and in Balmoral.”
New Prime Minister Liz Truss said: “The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this afternoon.
“My thoughts – and the thoughts of the people of our UK – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time.”
Ms Truss was in Parliament setting out her plans to deal with the energy crisis when the news broke.
After her departure, spokeswoman Lindsay Hoyle interrupted proceedings to say: “I know I speak on behalf of the whole House when I say that we convey our best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen and that she and the Royal Family carry ours Thoughts and prayers are in this moment.”
He added, “If there’s anything else, we’ll update the house accordingly.”
Yesterday, a palace spokesman said: “After a busy day yesterday, Her Majesty took the doctors’ advice this afternoon to rest.
“It means that the Privy Council meeting scheduled to take place tonight will be rearranged.”
The Queen is staying at Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire and the latest advice does not include hospitalisation.
The nation’s longest-reigning monarch has ongoing mobility problems and was set to practically hold the Privy Council on Wednesday.
