Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-serving monarch of the UK, died on September 8, aged 96.
“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 royal family said in a statement.
Earlier on September 8, the palace said that Queen Elizabeth II was under medical supervision at Balmoral after the doctors expressed their concern over her health.
“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 official statement from palace said.
The queen was born on April 21, 1926, at 17 Bruton Street in Mayfair, London. She was the first child of the duke and duchess of York – who later became King George VI – and Queen Elizabeth.
Buckingham Palace earlier reported that doctors were concerned about the health of Elizabeth II, and recommended that she remain under medical supervision.
