Crowds Gather Outside, Fleet of Cars Arrive Balmoral To Visit The Queen (Photos)

A fleet of cars believed to be carrying the Duke of Cambridge, Duke of York and the Earl and Countess of Wessex arrived at Balmoral just after 5pm. The plane carrying the royal party had arrived at Aberdeen Airport just before 4pm.

Elsewhere, at Buckingham Palace, people were pictured laying flowers at the gates as news spreads that the Queen is under medical supervision.

A woman laid the first bouquet at the Queen’s central London residence just after 5pm.

Alastair Stewart today called the BBC’s coverage of the Queen’s health, ‘pre-emptive and misjudged’ over presenter Huw Edwards’ black tie.

Earlier today, Buckingham Palace confirmed the Queen had been placed under medical supervision after doctors grew concerned for her health.

The BBC has since suspended its regular programming and replaced it with continuous news coverage presented by Huw Edwards dressed in black and wearing a black tie.

The optics prompted veteran journalist Alastair Stewart to criticise the broadcaster for its decision.

Crowds are now braving the wet weather to gather outside Buckingham Palace as they anxiously await an update on the Queen’s condition. 

Groups of people are waiting on the steps outside the Palace, while hundreds more huddled under umbrellas near to the gates.

Earlier today, doctors warned they were concerned for the monarch’s health – who was still said to be ‘comfortable’ as she enjoys her summer break in Balmoral.

Prince Harry  who was due to be in London for the WellChild Awards this evening, is on the way to Balmoral to meet with fellow members of the Royal household. He is not being joined by his wife, Meghan Markle, who is to remain in London, it is understood.

Despite travelling separately, Prince Harry is understood to have been in close contact with the family throughout the day as developments continue to emerge.
