“We deeply mourn the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Kingdoms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people across the world.

“During this time of grief and change, my family and I will be comforted and supported by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held.”

Tributes are already pouring in for Her Majesty, for many of the greatest Britons in history and arguably the most famous woman on the planet. For billions of people around the world, she was the very face of Britishness.

To her subjects at home, Her Majesty was the anchor of the nation, holding firm whatever storm she or her country faced – from the uncertain aftermath of World War II to, more recently, the pandemic. She was also steadfast as she faced tragedies and scandals in her own family, most recently the Megxit fallout and the death of her beloved husband Prince Philip.

Charles will embark on a UK tour ahead of his mother’s funeral with his wife Camilla, who the Queen announced would be crowned Queen consort of her eldest son in a historic statement to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee and her 70 years on the throne on February 6.

The Queen’s death came more than a year after that of her beloved husband Philip, her ‘strength and guide’, who died aged 99 in April 2021.

Since her funeral, where she poignantly sat alone due to lockdown restrictions, her own health has failed and she has been forced to miss an increasing number of events, mainly due to ‘mobility issues’ and tired.

It all started when Princess Elizabeth was officially proclaimed Queen on February 8, 1952. She was crowned at Westminster Abbey (pictured) on June 2, 1953 - coincidentally on the same day a joyous nation learned that a team of the Commonwealth had conquered Mount Everest.
