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

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, their spokesperson said

Barriers are being placed outside one of the entrances to the estate

The announcement comes after the Queen, 96, pulled out of a virtual meeting of her Privy Council on Wednesday, with doctors advising her to rest

There are clearly pressing concerns for the Queen’s health — much more explicitly put than before and without any reference to this only being about difficulties with mobility

There are also warnings against unfounded speculation, such as that she might have had a fall. And on Tuesday she was on her feet and photographed smiling as she appointed new Prime Minister Liz Truss

But from the last-minute cancellation of what would only have been a virtual meeting of the Privy Council — of senior ministers — there is no mistaking the fragility of the Queen’s health

‘Deeply concerned’ Ms Truss said the “whole country” would be “deeply concerned” by the news

“My thoughts — and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom — are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time,” she added

The Queen appointed Ms Truss as prime minister at Balmoral, instead of travelling to London for the event

During her 70-year reign the Queen has typically had an audience with her new prime minister at Buckingham Palace

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said: “My prayers, and the prayers of people across the [Church of England] 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.”
