Queen Elizabeth II has died. She was 96 years old.
The Queen was placed under medical supervision by doctors early Thursday morning, according to Buckingham palace and the BBC. The Royal Family, including all of Queen Elizabeth’s children, traveled to Balmoral Castle to be by her side. She passed away shortly after 7 p.m GMT.
The Queen’s son, Prince Charles, the Prince of Whales, is the first in line to succeed the Queen’s throne and is now the King. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, follows the Prince of Whale in the Royal Line.
Queen Elizabeth II held the throbe for over 70 years. She wasn’t able to attend the state opening of Parliament recently, for the first time in over 60 years. She was seen with a walking cane in recent photos, showing her struggle with mobility. The Queen has also carried less duties over the past months. Very likely, this was symbolizing declining health throughout 2022.
No news has revealed any underlying illness for Queen Elizabeth II prior to her death. The statement published on The Queen’s health concerns this morning was a shock to citizens, who usually don’t hear much news on the private health affairs of the Royal Family. The palace will announce Funeral services for the Queen soon, when which we will update you here.
