Rest in Peace, Your Majesty!

On September 8, 2022, around 6 PM (GMT), the announcement was made from Buckingham Palace: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.

“The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor) was born on April 21, 1926. She was 96 years old at the time of her passing.

Earlier in February, the world witnessed Her Majesty The Queen’s platinum jubilee – a four-day celebration took place in the UK in honor of her 96th birthday.

“When it comes to how to mark 70 years as your Queen, there is no guidebook to follow. Her official statement read. It really is a first. But I have been humbled and deeply touched that so many people have taken to the streets to celebrate my platinum jubilee.”

“While I may not have attended every event in person, my heart has been with you all; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family. I have been inspired by the kindness, joy and kinship that has been so evident in recent days, and I hope this renewed sense of togetherness will be felt for many years to come.”

“I thank you all most sincerely for your good wishes and for the part you have all played in these happy celebrations.”

She was the longest reigning monarch in British history and remained Queen for seven long decades.

During her reign, Her majesty worked alongside fifteen Prime Ministers, from Winston Churchill to Boris Johnson – she passed away just a day after Liz Truss was announced as the country’s new Prime Minister.

“It was announced on September 8 that Her Majesty was under medical supervision at Balmoral after doctors became worried about her health.”

“Throughout the day, members of the Royal Family were seen arriving at Balmoral, including the new heir apparent Prince William, the Duke of York, Princess Anne, the Earl of Wessex, and the new king, Charles.” Per VT.

Following her death, Prince Charles has immediately become King. The Palace released a statement from His Majesty The King, saying:  

“The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.”

“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms, and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”

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

Buckingham Palace says, “The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and return to London tomorrow.”

“All the Queen’s children traveled to Balmoral, near Aberdeen, after doctors placed the Queen under medical supervision.”

“Her grandson, Prince William, is also there, with his brother, Prince Harry, on his way,” BBC reported.
