Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon, the palace says.

Queen was the rock on which modern Britain was built, and the new King would be known as King Charles III 

Her husband of 73 years, Prince Philip, died in April 2021, just weeks short of his 100th birthday.

Queen Elizabeth II assumed the throne after the death of her father in February, 1952 

Queen Elizabeth II, Britain's longest serving monarch, has died at 96. She reigned for 70 years.

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

RIP Queen
