BREAKING NEWS: Heartbreaking news from Buckingham Palace comes just hours after news broke that Queen Elizabeth II was in bad health.
At 96 years old, the longest reigning British monarch has passed away.
“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the palace wrote. “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
Just on September 6, Queen Elizabeth II met with the United Kingdom’s newly elected Prime Minister Liz Truss. Now, her family, her doctors, and the world are concerned.
According to new reports, the Queen remains in Scotland under medical supervision. In a statement released Thursday morning by Buckingham Palace, Elizabeth is resting in Balmoral castle.
Buckingham Palace Issues Statement After Reports Reveal Concern for the Queen
“Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” the statement said. Balmoral is where the Queen often spends her summers.
After doctors revealed their concern for Queen Elizabeth, who is 96 years old, her son and her grandson, the two next in line for the thrown are rumored to be traveling to Balmoral to be with her Majesty.
Just two days ago, Queen Elizabeth met with Truss at Balmoral where she was asked by the Queen to form a new government following Boris Johnson’s resignation. However, while meeting with Truss on September 6, she announced that she would not meet with the Privy Council, her body of advisers, after doctors advised her to rest on September 7.
Appointing the new Prime Minister from her Balmoral residence is a break from tradition. According to reports, the Monarch changed the location of the appointment “due to her ongoing health and mobility issues.” Usually, the Queen appointed all the new prime ministers during her reign at Buckingham Palace.
Truss later took to Twitter to respond to the reports of the Queen’s failing health. She wrote, “The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime.”
“My thoughts — and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom — are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time,” Truss continued.
