According to her doctors, the 96-year-old monarch called off Wednesday’s meeting with her privy Council to go to bed.
The queen’s medical team has notified Prince Charles and the other royals. He is currently traveling to Balmoral along with Camilla and Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.
Officials are reluctant about discussing the Queen’s current health. According to the Washington Post, any statements made regarding her current health state “speaks volumes “.
Prime Minister Liz Truss was elected only two days ago. She expressed concern via Twitter.
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.

It was also notable that the queen met Truss and the outgoing prime Minister Boris Johnson at Balmoral, rather than traveling to Buckingham Palace where she normally meets representatives from the government.
Please pray for Queen Elizabeth and her family during this difficult time.
