Queen Elizabeth II, a beacon of stability after more than 70 years on the British throne, dies at 96, Buckingham Palace announces.
The Queen of the United Kingdom, who succeeded to the throne in 1952 aged 25, passed away today (Thursday, September 8, 2022).
Buckingham Palace issued a statement earlier on Thursday, which said that “doctors [were] concerned for Her Majesty’s health” and had “recommended she remain under medical supervision”.
Following that update, Prince Charles, Camilla, Princess Anne and other members of the Royal Family were reported to be travelling to Balmoral in Scotland where the Queen had been staying.
“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon” The Royal Familly shared in a statement. “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
