Huw Edwards sparks royalist concern with black tie look after Queen's health update

3 mins read


BBC viewers have started to panic after noticing senior presenter Huw Edwards appear in a black tie as the broadcaster has suspended regular programming until 6pm. The Queen is under medical supervision at Balmoral with doctors concerned for her health, Buckingham Palace has said. The 96-year-old is surrounded by family.

Gary Lineker said: “The fact Huw Edwards is in the studio and wearing a black tie doesn’t bode well.”

While the BBC’s royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell has joined him.

The queen, Britain’s longest-reigning sovereign and the world’s oldest monarch, has been suffering from what Buckingham Palace has called “episodic mobility problems” since the end of last year.

“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 palace said in a statement.

“The queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”

A spokesperson said Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, in Britain for a number of events, would also travel to Scotland.

“My prayers, and the prayers of people across the @churchofengland and the nation, are with Her Majesty The Queen today,” Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, said on Twitter.

Last October, Elizabeth spent a night in hospital and she has been forced to cut back on public engagements since then. On Wednesday she cancelled a virtual meeting with senior ministers after being advised to rest by her doctors.

Elizabeth came to the throne after the death of her father King George VI on Feb. 6, 1952, when she was just 25.

She was crowned in June the following year. The first televised coronation was a foretaste of a new world in which the lives of the royals were to become increasingly scrutinised by the media.

She became monarch at a time when Britain retained much of its empire. It was emerging from the ravages of World War Two, with food rationing still in force and class and privilege still dominant in society.

Winston Churchill was the first prime minister who served during her reign, Joseph Stalin was leader of the Soviet Union, the Korean War was raging. Truss is the 15th premier of her record-breaking reign.
