Queen under medical supervision as doctors are 'concerned'; royal family traveling to her Scottish castle

LONDON — Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II was placed under medical supervision Thursday as her family rushed to Scotland to be by her side after doctors became concerned for the

96-year-old monarch's health. “Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under

medical supervision,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. It added that the nation's much-loved figurehead “remained comfortable” at Balmoral, the castle in Scotland

where she spends her summers. Follow NBC News' live coverage here. Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, traveled to

Balmoral. Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, as well as Prince Andrew rushed to Balmoral by plane and were joined there by Princess Anne, who was already

in Scotland, meaning all the queen’s children are present. Prince William made the journey, but his wife, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, has remained at their home in

Windsor, because their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, are on their first full day at their new school, Kensington Palace said. Prince Harry

was also traveling to Scotland but Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex was not, a spokesperson for the couple said. Meghan will remain in London, where the couple had been nearing the

end of a trip to Europe. The growing fears for the queen's health came less than 24 hours after she canceled a meeting with the Privy Council — her formal body of advisers

that includes Britain's new leader, Liz Truss — after being advised by doctors to rest.
