Her Majesty Dies at 96

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II has died.

She died peacefully on Thursday at the age of 96.

Crowds gathered at London’s Buckingham Palace mansion on Thursday amid growing concerns about the Queen’s health.

About 100 people stood outside the palace gates in the rain as high-ranking royals rushed to Balmoral, where the Queen was being treated, according to AFP.

The Royal Family, announcing the death in a statement, said, “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.”

“The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

The Queen’s children – Charles, Princess Anne, 72, Prince Andrew, 62, and Prince Edward, 58, had flocked to her Scottish Highland retreat, Balmoral.

They were joined by Prince Charles’ sons, Prince William, and his estranged brother, Prince Harry.

Meanwhile two days earlier, the Queen had appointed Liz Truss as the 15th Prime Minister, under a reign.

Queen Elizabeth, the longest reigning monarch in the British history, emerged the Queen after the Second World War and reigned for 70 years.
