Buckingham Palace issued a statement on Thursday, September 8, in which it said that Queen Elizabeth was in serious health condition.
“Following further assessment this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical supervision. The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral,” the statement said.
