Saying farewell: Celebrities flooded social media with tributes to Queen Elizabeth II after she passed away ‘peacefully’ at Balmoral
Her son Charles, the previous Prince of Wales, is now King Charles III, because the world grieves his mother, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.
All Her Majesty’s children had rushed to Balmoral today after doctors became ‘concerned’ for her health. Hours later she died, surrounded by her family.
At 6.30pm her death was confirmed. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: ‘The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and can return to London tomorrow’.
The Queen’s death will see Britain and her Commonwealth realms enter right into a ten-day period of mourning as hundreds of thousands of her subjects within the UK and abroad come to terms together with her passing.
And as her son accedes to the throne, there may also be a celebration of her historic 70-year reign that saw her reach her Platinum Jubilee this yr – a landmark unlikely to be reached again by a British monarch.
King Charles III released this poignant statement reacting to the death of his ‘beloved mother’ as he took the throne today
Her Majesty the Queen – Britain’s longest-reigning monarch – has died peacefully at Balmoral aged 96. Her son Charles, is now king. He’ll remain at Balmoral tonight before returning to London with the Queen Consort, Camilla
Charles, the King, said: ‘The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the best sadness for me and all members of my family.
‘We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother. I do know her loss can be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people world wide.
‘During this era of mourning and alter, my family and I can be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection by which the Queen was so widely held.’
Tributes are already pouring in for Her Majesty, to many the best Briton in history and undoubtedly probably the most famous woman on earth. To billions world wide she was the very face of Britishness.
To her subjects at home, Her Majesty was the nation’s anchor, holding firm regardless of what storm she or her country was facing – from the uncertain aftermath of the Second World War to, more recently, the pandemic. She was also steadfast as she handled tragedies and scandals in her circle of relatives, most recently the fallout from Megxit and the death of her beloved husband Prince Philip.
Charles will embark on a tour of the UK before his mother’s funeral along with his wife Camilla, who the Queen announced could be crowned her eldest son’s Queen Consort in an historic statement to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee and 70 years on the throne on February 6.
The Queen’s passing got here greater than a yr after that of her beloved husband Philip, her ‘strength and guide’, who died aged 99 in April 2021. Since his funeral, where she poignantly sat alone due to lockdown restrictions, her own health faltered, and she or he was forced to miss an increasing variety of events mainly because of ‘mobility problems’ and tiredness.

In July she travelled to Scotland for her annual summer break, but cancelled her traditional welcome to Balmoral Castle in favour of a small more private event due to her health, believed to be linked to her ability to face. And at the top of July, Prince Charles represented his mother and opened the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham with the Duchess of Cornwall. In late August Queen missed the Braemar Gathering – the primary time she was not on the Highland Games in her 70-year reign.
But she was well enough to fulfill with Boris Johnson at Balmoral to simply accept his resignation, before asking the fifteenth Prime Minister of her reign, Liz Truss, to form a Government. Her Majesty, who stood with the support of a stick and smiled as she greeted Ms Truss in front of a roaring fire, had not been seen in public for 2 months. It might be her final picture.
Today all her children and Prince William flew into Scotland from all around the UK to get to Her Majesty’s bedside before she died. Prince Harry didn’t travel to Scotland from Windsor along with his family – and Meghan Markle stayed at Frogmore Cottage. But he didn’t make it to Balmoral in time and landed in Aberdeen, around quarter-hour after the death of his grandmother.
It began when Princess Elizabeth was formally proclaimed Queen on February 8, 1952. She was crowned in Westminster Abbey (pictured) on June 2, 1953 – by coincidence the identical day a joyous nation learned a Commonwealth team had conquered Mount Everest
