Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning British monarch with a reign spanning seven decades, died on Thursday at the age of 96, according to Buckingham Palace.
The Queen’s oldest son Charles has now become the King.
“The Queen died peacefully this afternoon at Balmoral.” “The King and Queen Consort will remain in Balmoral today tonight and will return to London tomorrow,” the royal family said in a statement on its official Twitter account, referring to Charles as the new King for the first time.
After her father, King George VI, died in 1952, Elizabeth succeeded to the throne. She presided over the latter days of the British empire, weathering global change and internal controversy while drastically modernizing the monarchy.
She died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland after doctors said they had become concerned about her health on Thursday.
Elizabeth ruled over the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms, and became one of the most recognizable women ever to have lived.
The Queen’s four children were at Balmoral Castle when the announcement was made.
Charles rushed to the Scottish castle earlier on Thursday together with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. The Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne, known as the Princess Royal, was already there.
