Queen Elizabeth II and Britain’s new Prime Minister Liz Truss met at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Tuesday, when the Queen asked Truss to form a government.

(CNS): Queen Elizabeth II is under medical surveillance as doctors are concerned about her health, according to an official statement from Buckingham Palace Thursday morning. The 96-year-old monarch suffers from mobility issues, but the statement did not elaborate on the concerns raised by her medical professionals that led to the official statement.

“Following further tests this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have advised her to remain under medical supervision,” the royal family said. Prince Charles and Prince William were said to be on their way to visit her when the statement was released.

On Tuesday, the Queen made a formal handover of power between outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson and new Prime Minister Liz Truss in a ceremony at the Scottish estate where she is currently staying. A meeting with the Privy Council was canceled yesterday.

Traditionally, the palace rarely mentions the health and well-being of members of the royal family in detail, and the statement raised concerns. He said he was deeply concerned by the news.

“My thoughts, and those of people across the UK, are with Her Majesty the Queen and her family at this time,” the new British Prime Minister said on Twitter.
