The British Royal Family, Britain and the world mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II
London — People in the UK and around the world mourn himGreat Britain and one of the most enduring royal figures the world has known. She died Thursday at the age of 96. Buckingham Palace confirmed the Queen had died at Balmoral Castle, her official summer residence in Scotland.
The Queen’s doctors admitted earlier Thursday that she had been placed under medical supervision as she was. For months, Queen Elizabeth had scaled back her public engagements and was forced to cancel many appearances with the palace, citing “mobility issues” and general unease.
All four of her children – her eldest son and the new King Charles, along with his sister Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Elizabeth’s youngest son Prince Edward – traveled to Balmoral to be by her side. Prince Charles’ eldest son, the new heir to the throne Prince William, and his brother Prince Harry were also there.
Over the next 10 days, a meticulously orchestrated process of mourning and constitutional transition will play out across the UK.
