3 mins read


Lewis Hamilton has sent an emotional message to the Queen, who is under medical supervision at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The Queen’s doctors are concerned for her health, but insisted on Thursday that she “remains comfortable.”

“It is definitely concerning,” Hamilton said as news of the Queen’s condition broke. “She has been such a strong leader for such a long, long time and so resilient. I know she has always been a real fighter, so my thoughts are with her and the family. My prayers are with them. I am hoping for better news soon.”

On Thursday morning, Buckingham Palace released a statement about the Queen’s health as her family rushed to be with her. “Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” it read. “The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”

The statement came after a Buckingham Palace spokesperson revealed that the 96-year-old had accepted advice from doctors to rest in the wake of her meeting with Liz Truss on Tuesday, where she appointed the South West Norfolk MP as the Prime Minister.

On Thursday, the Queen’s four children Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward travelled to Balmoral to be with their mother, as did her grandson Prince William. And Prince Harry is also on his way. Meanwhile, well-wishers are gathering at the gates of Balmoral, as well as outside Buckingham Palace in London.

Hamilton has met the Queen on several occasions and was presented with an MBE by her in 2009. He has also had a private lunch with Her Majesty, where she gave him advice on dining etiquette. “I got invited to a lunch and was sitting next to the Queen,” the veteran driver told Graham Norton in 2015. “I was excited and started to talk to her. But she said, pointing to my left, ‘no you speak that way first, and I’ll speak this way and then I’ll come back to you.’” Hamilton was then knighted at the end of last year, although the ceremony was conducted by Prince Charles.
