Doctors placed Elizabeth II under round-the-clock supervision due to the sharp deterioration of her condition. This was reported about an hour ago by representatives of Buckingham Palace. According to an official statement, doctors are seriously concerned about the queen’s condition.
The fact that the 96-year-old queen is getting worse every day became known a few days ago. They wrote that Her Majesty was at her Scottish residence Balmoral and might not return to London anymore. The Queen weakened, but still found the strength to have an audience with Britain’s new Prime Minister, Liz Truss. In the photo from this meeting, Elizabeth, although smiling, looked very tired. Black spots appeared on her hands, which indicated serious problems with blood circulation.
It is known that immediately after Buckingham Palace issued a statement about the queen’s health issues, her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla and grandson Prince William were urgently summoned to Scotland. They, as some sources suggest, went to Elizabeth in order to have time to say goodbye to her.
The BBC channel, in light of the news about the possible impending death of the queen, changed the broadcast schedule.
“The BBC has shortened its daytime schedule and is broadcasting live news as concerns about Queen Elizabeth II’s health grow.”
— the channel’s press office said.
As previously announced, in the event of the Queen’s death, Operation London Bridge, developed by the Cabinet of Ministers, will be launched. According to the documents, the Prime Minister will be one of the first to know about Elizabeth’s death, then a statement will be issued to the people. Next, flags will be lowered at half-mast in Whitehall. Government officials will have to spend no more than 10 minutes on all actions.
