Queen’s health latest: Everything we know so far after Buckingham Palace announcement

3 mins read

There has also been widespread speculation her health was the reason for Liz Truss, who was accepted in person by the Queen as the new Prime Minister just two days ago, and Keir Starmer leaving the House of Commons during a debate. In a significant break with tradition, Ms Truss travelled to Balmoral for her formal acceptance as PM.

Historically Her Majesty has always come down to Buckingham Palace for the event.

Buckingham Palace’s full statement, released around 12.30pm, read: “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 Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”

The BBC has sparked further concerns about the Queen’s health after senior presenter Huw Edwards appeared in a black tie.

The broadcaster has also suspended regular programming until 6pm. On Wednesday, the monarch postponed a virtual Privy Council meeting after royal doctors advised her to rest.

Her Majesty regularly uses a walking stick, and has had to cancel or move a number of royal engagements held outside of the Royal residences. Last October the Queen spent the night in hospital.

The Queen did make a welcome appearance at this year’s special edition of Royal Windsor Horse Show – an event she has not missed since it began in 1943 – and was also able to open the Elizabeth Line during the same week.

However she let Charles read the Queen’s Speech for the State Opening of Parliament at the start of the summer – for the first time in decades – due to her episodic mobility problems. Last November, the Palace said she had a “back strain” which meant she had to miss the Remembrance service at the Cenotaph in November 2021.
