The Queen is under medical supervision at Balmoral Castle in Scotland

a statement from Buckingham Palace says her doctors are concerned for her health, but say the 96-year-old monarch “remains comfortable”

• Just after 12.30pm UK time, Buckingham Palace issued a statement saying the Queen’s doctors were concerned about her health, recommending she remained under medical supervision.

• Soon after that, according to the BBC, news followed that all the Queen’s children were either already with her at Balmoral Castle in Scotland or travelling to be with her.

• Prince Charles, Camilla and Princess Anne are at Balmoral.

• Prince William, the Queen’s eldest grandson and second in line to the throne, is on his way there, while his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, has remained in Windsor as her children are on their first full day at their new school.

• Prince William’s brother, Prince Harry, and his wife Meghan had been in the UK in recent days for engagements, and are now known to be travelling to Scotland too.

• On Tuesday, newly appointed UK PM Liz Truss had herself travelled to Balmoral to be appointed by the Queen, in a break with tradition as the monarch would have normally seen her in London. But the Queen had suffered from mobility issues recently and so the meeting was moved to Balmoral.

• Well-wishers are gathering at the gates of Balmoral, as well as outside Buckingham Palace, in London.

• New UK Prime Minister Liz Truss says “the whole country will be deeply concerned by the news”

• The Archbishop of Canterbury says he is sending prayers and the first ministers of Scotland and Wales say she is in their thoughts.
