Doctors worry over Queen Elizabeth health

Worries developed on Thursday for Queen Elizabeth. After Buckingham Palace said her doctors were “concerned” for her health and recommended that she remained under medical supervision.

The 96-year-old Head of State – Britain’s longest-serving monarch – has been dogged by health problems since last October. That have left her with difficulties walking and standing.

On Wednesday, she pulled out of a planned meeting with her senior political advisors, after being told to rest.

The previous day, she held audiences at her Scottish Highlands retreat, Balmoral. With outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson and appointed his successor, Liz Truss.

“Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health. And have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

“The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral,” the palace added.

The palace statement about the queen’s health is highly unusual and comes after she has looked visibly frailer in recent months, and a succession of withdrawals from public engagements.

She has taken to walking with the help of a stick and was also seen earlier this year at the Chelsea Flower Show touring the site in a motorised buggy.

In February, she was laid low by a bout of COVID-19, which she admitted afterwards had left her “exhausted”.
