The Queen has been inundated with well-wishes after Buckingham Palace revealed concerned doctors have placed her under medical supervision.
Her Majesty, 96, is currently under medical supervision at Balmoral where she is said to be resting and is "comfortable".
Her four children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, the Duke of York and the Earl and Countess of Wessex have travelled to Aberdeenshire to be with her.
Prince William, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also heading to the monarch's bedside.
The Archbishop of Canterbury 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."
Prime Minister Liz Truss said: "The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime.
"My thoughts - and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom - are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time."
Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau also sent his thoughts to the Queen.
"My thoughts, and the thoughts of Canadians across the country, are with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at this time," he wrote on Twitter.
"We’re wishing her well, and sending our best to the Royal Family."

US President Joe Biden has also been briefed on the monarch's health, and wished her well.
He told Liz Truss he was "keeping the Queen and her family in their thoughts", the White House said.
The president and the Prime Minister were taking part in a video conference about the war in Ukraine.
