BREAKING: Queen Elizabeth II is dead

Buckingham Palace announced on Thursday that Queen Elizabeth II, the 96-year-old monarch of the United Kingdom, has passed away.

 

The royal family released a statement that read, “The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.” The King and the Queen Consort will spend this evening and tomorrow in Balmoral before flying back to London.

The Queen had been placed under medical monitoring at Balmoral Castle in Scotland earlier on Thursday after physicians expressed “concern” about her health. To be with her, her children and grandkids had made the trip.

A photographer last captured the monarch on Tuesday at her home in Scotland, where she met with Liz Truss and extended an invitation for her to serve as prime minister.

Instead of traveling to Buckingham Palace in London, Truss and the departing prime minister Boris Johnson went to Scotland because the queen’s health prevented her from traveling.
