At age 96, Elizabeth is Britain’s longest-reigning monarch. She ascended to the throne in 1952 and, in June, celebrated her Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years as queen.
Members of the British royal family, including the queen’s four children, are now gathering by her side at Balmoral, according to their respective spokespersons.

Meghan Markle will not be joining Prince Harry and the royal family in Scotland to be at Queen Elizabeth II’s bedside, Page Six has confirmed.
Page Six is told that Prince Harry is currently traveling to the UK from Germany, where he and Markle were promoting the Invictus Games, to join Prince Charles, Prince William and more as Elizabeth’s health deteriorates.
Earlier Thursday, the royal family announced the monarch was “under medical supervision.”
Should the Queen die, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will prepare to fly back to Britain for a funeral to be attended by the royal family, world leaders and dignitaries from across the globe.
