Family members rushed to be with Queen Elizabeth after doctors said they were concerned about the health of Britain’s 96-year-old monarch on Thursday (8 September) and said she should remain under medical supervision.
“The queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”
“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.
The previous day she had been pictured appointing Liz Truss as the country’s new prime minister at Balmoral.
Elizabeth has been queen of Britain and more than a dozen other countries since 1952, including Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and earlier this year marked her 70th year on the throne with four days of national celebrations in June.
