The Queen and the royal family are in my thoughts and prayers.
All the Queen’s children are gathering at, or are travelling to, her Scottish estate near Aberdeen.
“Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” a statement said.
The Queen is “comfortable”, it added.
It is very unusual for Buckingham Palace to put out a statement like this – it is usually unwilling to provide a commentary on the 96-year-old monarch’s medical matters, which are seen as private.

Prince Charles has travelled to Balmoral with his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall.
The Duke of York and the Count and Countess of Wessex are travelling to the Scottish estate, about 40 miles (64km) west of Aberdeen.
The Princess Royal, Princess Anne, was already in Scotland undertaking engagements and is in Balmoral.
The Duke of Cambridge is also on his way, with the Duchess of Cambridge remaining in Windsor with their children on their first full day at school.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who were due to attend a charity event in London, are travelling to Balmoral, said a spokeswoman.
Barriers are being placed outside one of the entrances to the estate.
A statement from the newly elected prime minister, Liz Truss:
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.
