Queen Elizabeth II Dies At Age 96

Queen Elizabeth II has passed on at the age of 96.

Buckingham Palace reports that the Queen died peacefully at Balmoral today, September 8th.

“Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision,” the statement read. “The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”

The 96-year-old monarch’s immediate family has been informed, a royal source says.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have traveled to Balmoral,” Buckingham Palace said, adding that Prince William is also making his way to Balmoral from his home in Windsor.

The news follows an announcement Wednesday September 7th that the Queen would not preside over a scheduled Privy Council meeting so she could rest.

“After a full day yesterday, Her Majesty has this afternoon accepted doctors’ advice to rest,” the palace said in a statement. “This means that the Privy Council meeting that had been due to take place this evening will be rearranged.”

On Tuesday, the Queen welcomed Conservative Party leader Liz Truss to her retreat in the Scottish Highlands and bid outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson a formal farewell.

Queen Elizabeth has been using a cane on a regular basis since last October due to ongoing mobility issues. The same month, she cancelled a planned trip to Northern Ireland on medical advice and spent a night in the hospital.

The Queen also chose not to attend the Remembrance Day ceremony in November due to a sprained back, and she chose not to spend Christmas with the royal family at Sandringham, partly due to an increase in COVID-19 cases around the holidays.

In February, the palace announced that Queen Elizabeth had tested positive for COVID-19. “Her Majesty is experiencing mild cold-like symptoms but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week,” the palace said.

The monarch made three appearances for her Platinum Jubilee weekend in June but did skip a few events.

Her last public outing was in July, when she stepped out with daughter Princess Anne to open the new 28-bed Thames Hospice building.
