A rare official statement on Her Majesty the Queen’s health has been released by Buckingham Palace in the past hour.

"The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral."

Her Majesty’s four children have all travelled to Balmoral after doctors expressed concern for the monarch’s health and had decided to place her under medical supervision.

The announcement will increase existing worries about the Queen’s health. She is known to have pulled out of a remote privy council yesterday after doctors ordered her to rest.

A royal source told The Times that there would be “no running commentary” on the Queen’s health. She is understood to be remaining at Balmoral and is not expected to go to hospital.

New Prime Minister Liz Truss said "the whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime".

She added "my thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time".

A spokesman for the Queen suggested that the advice to rest was the result of her “full day” on Tuesday.

Tuesday (September 6) was the first time a Prime Minister has travelled to Balmoral to meet the now 96-year-old Queen, due to her mobility issues preventing a break from her summer residence for a trip to London.

The nation's longest-reigning monarch appeared frail and used a walking stick during Tuesday's historic audience with new PM Truss. She had already held a meeting with outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson when he officially offered his resignation.

Speaker Lindsay Hoyle said to MPs: "We send our best wish to HM the Queen and that she and the Royal Family are in our thoughts and prayers at this moment."
