After the evaluation, all of her children have started to gather at her Scottish estate near Aberdeen. The BBC says that this kind of statement from Buckingham Palace is very unusual. “It is usually unwilling to comment on the 96-year-old monarch’s private medical matters,” the report said.
Media reports say that Britain’s longest-serving monarch has been sick since October, which has made it hard for her to walk and stand.
Her other children, Princess Anne, 72, Prince Andrew, 62, and Prince Edward, 58, are either travelling or at the Balmoral royal estate in Scotland.

Kate Middleton, who is married to Prince William, stayed in Windsor with their children on their first full day of school.
The Queen, who is instantly recognizable by billions of people around the world, is in her Platinum Jubilee year, which marks 70 years of her rule since she took over from her father, King George VI, in 1952.
“At this time, my thoughts are with Her Majesty the Queen and her family,” Truss said. Leaders in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland said the same thing.
My prayers, and the prayers of people across the @churchofengland and the nation, are with Her Majesty The Queen today.
May God’s presence strengthen and comfort Her Majesty, her family, and those who are caring for her at Balmoral.
