Queen Elizabeth II, who ruled the UK for 70 years, passed away at Balmoral at the age of 96.
She passed away peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent the majority of the summer, she passed away peacefully on Thursday afternoon.
The Queen saw a significant social change after ascending to the throne in 1952.
Her loss will be “deeply felt” all over the world, according to her son, King Charles III.
He stated: “We feel great loss at the loss of a treasured mother and sovereign.
“I am confident that the nation, the realms, and the Commonwealth, as well as many others worldwide, will feel her loss profoundly.”
He said that during the coming time of grief, he and his family would be “comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection with which the Queen was held by so many.”
The King will return to London on Friday with his wife Camilla, who is now Queen Consort, according to Buckingham Palace. He’s supposed to address the country.
Doctors for the Queen were worried about her health earlier in the day, so the most important royals met in Balmoral.
Following the Queen’s placement under medical supervision, all of her children made their way to Balmoral, which is close to Aberdeen.
At Buckingham Palace, Prince William, her great-grandson and current successor to the throne, as well as Prince Harry, gathered there.
The Queen, who on Tuesday named Liz Truss as prime minister, was described as the “rock” upon which modern Britain was created and as having “given us the stability and strength that we required.”
She said the following about the future king: “In the same way that his mother gave so much, for so long, to so many people, we pledge to him our loyalty and devotion.”
And as the second Elizabethan era comes to an end, we say “God save the King,” just as Her Majesty would have wanted, to start a new part of our great country’s glorious history.
Justin Welby, who is the spiritual head of the Church of England and also the monarch’s supreme governor, said he was “deeply sorry.”
He remarked that “the King and the Royal Family are in my prayers.”
King Charles immediately succeeded his mother, Queen Elizabeth, who passed away on Thursday. On Saturday, at a ceremony at St. James’ Palace in London, he will be given his new job title.
The televised event will start at 10 a.m. London time, said the New York Times.
The celebration on Saturday is called Accession Day and is not a coronation. Months after the queen’s passing, a much more joyous coronation ceremony is anticipated.
What Will Occur If The Queen Passes Away?
The palace has a thorough plan named “Operation London Bridge” that will be carried out after the Queen passes away when the time comes.
When the Queen passes away, government authorities will first relay the news of her passing using a code word, rumored to be “London Bridge is down.” The prime minister, the cabinet secretary, and other top officials will probably be informed. The Commonwealth countries, where she is still seen as a symbol of leadership, will also be told about her death. The Queen is the head of state in some states, and those states will also be told about her death.
The British Press Association will receive a news flash announcing the Queen’s passing after government officials are informed. A black death announcement will be pinned to the gates of Buckingham Palace, and the palace will also start to create demonstrations of sorrow, including black images across all social media accounts, posted messages on official websites, and more. Expect official declarations from the prime minister and the royal family. Later that evening, Prince Charles, the eldest son of the Queen, would address the world as the future king of the United Kingdom.
About The Queen
From 6 February 1952 until her passing on 8 September 2022, Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; 21 April 1926–8 September 2022) reigned over the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. She held the title of the monarch in 15 of the 32 sovereign states where she governed as queen regnant during her lifetime. She has the longest recorded reign of any female head of state in history, at 70 years and 214 days, and the longest of any British monarch.
Elizabeth was the first child born to the Duke and Duchess of York and was born in Mayfair, London (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth). Elizabeth was the presumed heir when her father assumed the throne in 1936 following the abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII. She received a private home education before starting to serve in the Auxiliary Territorial Service during the Second World War.
In November 1947, she married former Greek and Danish royal Philip Mountbatten; their marriage lasted 73 years until he died in April 2021. Charles III, Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, are their four offspring.
At the age of 25, Elizabeth succeeded her father as head of the Commonwealth and queen of seven sovereign Commonwealth nations: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). The Troubles in Northern Ireland, devolution in the UK, the end of African colonialism, and the UK’s membership in the European Communities and exit from the European Union all occurred during Elizabeth’s constitutional monarchy.
Her realms changed in number throughout time, as other lands attained independence and some realms established republics. Among her many important trips and meetings, she went on state visits to China in 1986, Russia in 1994, and the Republic of Ireland in 2011. She also met five popes.
