A royal superfan has insisted the Queen has the "best doctors in the world" after fears over her health emerged today.
Andy Park, 59, has "always loved royalty" and even watched a Queen's Christmas speech at 3pm every day for nearly three decades – yet despite following the royals closely, was still "shocked" to hear of her deteriorating health today.
Hearing the news today (September 8) that the UK's longest-serving monarch was under medical supervision, Park, from Melksham, Wilts., said: "I'm really gutted.

"I've always loved royalty, met a couple of the Royal Family members, met Camilla years ago and Prince Harry.
"I’m just shocked hearing about what's happened, and at this stage I wish her all the best."
Adding to his well wishes, he said: "Regardless of what happens, I'll continue to watch the speeches.
"It's become a tradition for me, and this is way for me to honour the Queen and her family.
"I know she's got the best doctors in the world, so I really do hope she'll be okay."
For nearly 30 years, Park has picked a different speech each day and says the monarch's 1997 seasonal address is his favourite.
Park's concern comes following news that doctors are concerned for the Queen's health.
Senior royals have reportedly rushed to be by the Queen's side, with the Queen's four children, Prince William, and Harry and Meghan all making their way to Balmoral.
Their decisions followed a Buckingham Palace statement released earlier today (September 8) regarding the 96-year-old monarch's health.
It read: "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."
A royal source told The Times that there would be "no running commentary" on the Queen’s health from the palace – but the BBC has cancelled its regularly-scheduled programming to report on Her Majesty's health.
Newly-appointed Prime Minister Liz Truss said "the whole country will be deeply concerned by the news from Buckingham Palace this lunchtime".
She added: "My thoughts – and the thoughts of people across our United Kingdom – are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time."
