Queen Elizabeth II is currently under medical supervision at her home in Scotland.
This comes just one day after she was advised to rest following the cancellation of a Privy Council meeting.
Senior royal family members have travelled to be by her side including Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince William.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are currently in the UK, have also cancelled a public appearance in London to be by Her Majesty’s side at Balmoral Castle.
“Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are travelling to Balmoral Castle. They were supposed to be doing a charity event in London this evening,” Chris Ship, ITV’s royal editor, confirmed.
