Dr. Gabriel Mirkin, a graduate of Harvard University and Baylor University College of Medicine, provided his professional opinion on the matter in an interview, though he has never personally treated or examined the Queen.

Truss was scheduled to meet with the matriarch again, but the Queen canceled the engagement at the last minute due to doctors' orders to rest. Earlier today, she addressed the stressful situation on social media.

"The whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime," she wrote on Twitter. "My thoughts - and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom - are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time."

Dr. Mirkin spoke with Radar.
