Are Harry and Meghan going to Balmoral? Here are all the royal members at the Queen's bedside
BALMORAL, SCOTLAND: Queen Elizabeth II’s health is not in a good condition as reports have said that she has been kept under medical supervision at Balmoral. A statement from Buckingham Palace said, “Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen's doctors are concerned for Her Majesty's health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision. The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”
A royal spokesman also said that Prince Charles, Camilla and the Duke of Cambridge have been notified about the 96-year-old monarch’s ill-health. All of them are reported to be at the Queen's bedside. Reports said that Prince Andrew and Princess Anne have also joined them.

However, the Duchess of Cambridge did not make it to the castle because her three children have just begun going to Lambrook School in Berkshire. Kensington Palace revealed that Kate Middleton is in Windsor as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are attending their first day at the school.
Soon after the news of the Queen went out, the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Portal Welby, shared a tweet that read, “My prayers, and the prayers of people across the @churchofengland and the nation, are with Her Majesty The Queen today. May God’s presence strengthen and comfort Her Majesty, her family, and those who are caring for her at Balmoral.”

Former Conservative prime minister David Cameron tweeted, “Deeply concerned by the news this afternoon from Buckingham Palace. I send my heartfelt thoughts and prayers to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family at this worrying time.”

"I wasn't only proud to participate as a judge in this exhibition - I was deeply moved by each and every photograph, as they capture a moment and say so much about their personal story. Every person who is part of the WellChild family is a true inspiration. Congratulations to all the entries and a special cheer to the winners!” he had added.
