Her son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, is now King Charles III, as the world mourns his mother, Britain’s longest-serving monarch.

All of Her Majesty’s children had rushed to Balmoral today after doctors became ‘worried’ for her health. A few hours later, she passed away, surrounded by her family.

At 6:30 p.m., his death was confirmed. A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and Queen consort will stay at Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow’.

The Queen’s death will see Britain and her Commonwealth realms enter a ten-day period of mourning as millions of her subjects in the UK and abroad come to terms with her passing.

And as her son ascends to the throne, there will also be a celebration of her historic 70-year reign which saw her reach her platinum jubilee this year – a landmark unlikely to be reached again by a monarch. British.

Charles, the King, said: “The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a time of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.

“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 his funeral, where she stood is poignantly sitting alone due to lockdown restrictions, her own health has declined, and she has been forced to miss an increasing number of events mainly due to “mobility issues” and fatigue.

In July, she traveled to Scotland for her annual summer holiday, but canceled her traditional welcome to Balmoral Castle in favor of a smaller, more private event due to her health, which is thought to be linked to his ability to stand. And at the end of July, Prince Charles represented his mother and opened the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham with the Duchess of Cornwall. At the end of August, Queen missed the Braemar Gathering – the first time she was not at the Highland Games in her 70-year reign.

But she was well enough to meet Boris Johnson at Balmoral to accept his resignation, before asking the 15th Prime Minister of her reign, Liz Truss, to form a government. Her Majesty, who stood with the support of a staff and smiled as she greeted Mrs Truss in front of a crackling fire, had not been seen in public for two months. It would be his last photo.

Today, all of her children and Prince William flew to Scotland from across the UK to visit Her Majesty’s bedside before her death. Prince Harry did not travel to Scotland from Windsor with his family – and Meghan Markle stayed at Frogmore Cottage. But he didn’t get to Balmoral in time and landed in Aberdeen some 15 minutes after his grandmother died.

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.
