Prince William has arrived in Scotland alongside other senior members of the royal family amid growing concerns for Queen Elizabeth II’s health following an announcement by Buckingham Palace that she is under medical supervision.
A private jet landed at Aberdeen Airport, near the 96-year-old monarch’s Balmoral estate, at 4pm London time, carrying the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Edward, Prince Andrew and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
Prince Charles and the Queen’s daughter Princess Anne are said to be with their mother at the castle.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are attending a number of charity events in the UK, are also making their way to be with the Queen.
Fears for the monarch’s health began with a lunchtime announcement from Buckingham Palace, which read:
“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.”
Britain’s new Prime Minister Liz Truss was briefed during a session of the House of Commons. Upon hearing the news, she spearheaded the nation’s good wishes messages. On Twitter she wrote:
“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.”
This is an evolving story.
