A Clarence House spokesman said: “Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have travelled to Balmoral.”

Newly appointed Prime Minister Liz Truss said: “The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime.

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

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “All of us are feeling profoundly concerned at reports of Her Majesty’s health."

Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle also shared his best wishes. He told MPs at lunchtime: "I know I speak on behalf of the entire House when I say that we send our best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen and that she and the royal family are in our thoughts and prayers at this moment."

It comes after the the Queen pulled out of a virtual Privy Council on Wednesday, a day after appointing Liz Truss as Prime Minister at her home in Scotland.

“After a full day yesterday, Her Majesty has this afternoon accepted doctors’ advice to rest. This means that the privy council meeting that had been due to take place this evening will be rearranged," Buckingham Palace said.

The Queen has had to pull out of several events this year due to health concerns and a battle with Covid-19. In May Buckingham Palace confirmed she would miss the State Opening of Parliament for the first time in 59 years.

During her 70-year-reign, the Queen previously missed the address in 1959 and 1963 when she was pregnant.

She tested positive for Covid-19 in February and experienced cold-like symptoms. She attended virtual engagements while overcoming the virus in the following weeks.

Her test results came in just over a week after her son and heir to the throne Prince Charles contracted the virus for the second time.
