A rainbow has appeared over Buckingham Palace amid fears surrounding the Queen's health.

Concerns for Her Majesty escalated earlier today when the Palace announced that the 96-year-old was under medical supervision.

Since the news was announced, crowds have been gathering outside the Queen's residence in London as the world awaits news on her condition.

And in one video posted to Twitter, a large rainbow has formed outside.

A statement from the Palace released earlier this afternoon, said the Queen was at her home in Balmoral and 'comfortable'.

It read: "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."

Clarence House said The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall had travelled to Balmoral to be with the Queen, and that the Duke of Cambridge was also travelling up.

However, no further information about the Queen's condition was offered.

Following the announcement, Prime Minister Liz Truss said: "The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime.

The Queen is under medical supervision, Buckingham Palace revealed this afternoon.

"My thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time."

Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle also shared his best wishes with the country's monarch.

He told MPs: "I know I speak on behalf of the entire House when I say that we send our best wishes to Her Majesty the Queen and that she and the royal family are in our thoughts and prayers at this moment."

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said he was 'deeply worried' by the news and that he was hoping for the Queen’s recovery.

He wrote in a tweet: "Along with the rest of the country, I am deeply worried by the news from Buckingham Palace this afternoon.

"My thoughts are with Her Majesty the Queen and her family at this time, and I join everyone across the United Kingdom in hoping for her recovery."
