Turbulent times for the Queen too / Queen Elizabeth’s health problem
Just yesterday, the Queen had to cancel her participation in a virtual meeting of her Privy Council.
The day before, she had first received Boris Johnson, who handed in his resignation, and immediately afterwards Liz Truss, who appointed her as the new Prime Minister. Contrary to tradition, this did not happen in Buckingham Palace, but at Balmoral Castle, which the Queen did not want to leave for the ceremony for health reasons. A spokesman said it was a full day.
Truss: “My thoughts are with Her Majesty”
Britain’s new prime minister, Liz Truss, expressed concern at the news. She said the whole of Britain was “deeply concerned” about the Queen’s health. “My thoughts – and the thoughts of everyone in the UK – are now with Her Majesty The Queen and her family,” Truss tweeted.
The leader of the opposition Labor Party, Keir Starmer, also expressed similar words. Starmer said his thoughts are with the Queen and he hopes she gets better soon.
Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons, interrupted an energy debate in Parliament to say he sent his best wishes to the monarch.
All four of the Queen’s children are probably with her
The Queen’s children were also concerned. According to media reports, all four children are now with her in Scotland – including Crown Prince Charles and Prince William.
According to their spokesman, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are also on their way to Scotland. The couple lives in the USA.
Health problems for a long time
Elizabeth II has been suffering from health problems for a long time and has greatly reduced the number of her public appearances. In the past year, she has been represented more and more often by her son Prince Charles. He replaced her for the first time at the opening of Parliament in May and read out the government’s program for the coming session in her place.
During the four-day celebrations in June for her 70th jubilee, the Queen only showed her tens of thousands of followers twice briefly on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. In all public appearances, she was always smiling and in a good mood.
