The 96-year-old monarch had a busy day on Tuesday during which she accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Boris Johnson before appointing Liz Truss as his successor.

Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle interrupted the speech of SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford during the energy debate to tell 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."
