The confirmation came after a crowd gathered outside Buckingham Palace beneath dark clouds as news spread that the Queen is under medical supervision at Balmoral.

More than 100 umbrella-clad observers have congregated on the stone steps up to The Queen Victoria Memorial, opposite the royal residence, and dozens more are standing beside the gates.

Storm clouds are looming overhead, with a smattering of rain over central London.
