Dan Walker ‘hoping for good news’ after ‘concerning’ update on Queen’s health

Dan Walker has paid tribute to Her Majesty, The Queen.

The former BBC Breakfast presenter took to twitter to show his admiration for the 96-year-old monarch as Buckingham Palace announced Her Majesty remains under “medical supervision”.

The 45-year-old television personality wrote: “The population of the UK is about 67 million people. The vast majority of us have lived our entire lives under the reign of the Queen.”

He continued: “Easy to see why today’s news of ill health is so concerning to so many.”

The Channel 5 personality added: “We hope for good news.”

This comes after Buckingham Palace released a rare statement giving an update on Her Majesty’s health.

A palace spokesperson wrote: “Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision.”

They added: “The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”

The Queen’s four children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward have rushed to be by her side in Balmoral as well as The Duke Of Cambridge and The Duchess of Cornwall and are either heading to or arrived at the Scottish estate.

Prince Harry is due to travel to Balmoral later today without his wife Meghan Markle, The Duchess Of Sussex according to the BBC.

The announcement by the Palace will increase existing worries after Her Majesty pulled out of a virtual privy council yesterday after doctors ordered her to rest.

This comes as viewers have slammed Dan's former workplace the BBC for their coverage surrounding The Queen's health.

The broadcasting corporation has come under fire from viewers online after they tuned in to watch the latest news and updates on the status of the 96-year-old Monarch.

Viewers flocked to social media in their droves to slam the news channel’s coverage of the developing story after royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell took to the studio to report, speculate and give his insight into any developments.

But one royal expert has emphasized how serious the developments around The Queen are.

Speaking to the Daily Star about the worrying developments, royal expert and journalist Jonathan Sacerdoti said it was "notable" the statement had been released given that "they keep these things quite private".

"They have obviously felt it necessary to tell us her doctors are concerned, so it does seem that this is serious enough that the family want to be around her," Sacerdoti said.

He also said that the royals "will be gathering around her to be with her primarily as family", but at the same time they will be aware that "the whole world is thinking of her and praying for her".
