The Queen’s family rush to Balmoral as crowds gather at Buckingham Palace

Crowds gather outside Buckingham Palace as doctors monitor Her Majesty The Queen’s health.

A crowd has gathered under dark clouds as word breaks that the Queen is under medical supervision at Balmoral.

More than 100 umbrella-clad observers have gathered on the stone steps to the Queen Victoria Memorial opposite the royal residence, and dozens more stand by the gates.

Despite the size of the crowd, the atmosphere is relatively calm and many peek through the bars of the main gates.

Police have erected barriers outside for the public to stand behind if they show their support for the monarch.

Her Majesty has been under medical supervision since this morning after doctors became concerned about her health.

Prince Charles, Princess and Prince William sit at the Queen’s bedside while Prince Harry and Meghan Markle travel to Balmoral Castle.

Crowds began gathering outside Buckingham Palace this afternoon in the Queen’s absence as Britons across the country came out to show their support.

Prince Edward and Prince Andrew will soon join the rest of the royal family as well.

The growing crowd outside awaits more news on the Queen’s health after Buckingham Palace issued a statement this afternoon.

It said: “Following further examinations 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 on Balmoral.”

Evie Blades, who works nearby, told us: “It feels so tense here.”

A statement about the Queen’s health is extremely rare and suggests that the situation is very serious.

Minutes before the statement, new Prime Minister Liz Truss was handed a note in the House of Commons updating her on the development as she revealed her plans to cap energy bills for the next two years.

She later 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.”

The royal family’s website appeared to crash following the news of the queen’s health concerns.
