The Queen is under medical supervision at Balmoral after doctors became concerned for her health, Buckingham Palace has said.

Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, are travelling to Balmoral to be with Her Majesty, who Buckingham Palace said "remains comfortable".

Prince William, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, the Countess of Wessex and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also travelling to be by the Queen's side.

Princess Anne is already with Her Majesty at her Scottish residence.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "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."

Another news source has pointedly said "they are using 'comfortable' too much".

Queen Elizabeth's funeral, expected 11 days from now, will be the culmination of an official mourning period that began with her death Thursday at Balmoral.

In the royal plan, the days of mourning are identified as D (day of death) plus a number. However, D has been designated as Friday instead.

While other events may change, here's what's expected each day over the next week and a half.
