Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s Longest-Serving Monarch, Has Passed Away At The Age Of 96.

During the past few months, the Queen has appeared to be frailer and has been withdrawing from public engagements. As a result, she has taken to walking with a stick and has been seen visiting the Chelsea Flower Show in a special motorised buggy.

The Royal Family announced Thursday that Queen Elizabeth II died in Scotland at the age of 96 after battling health issues since October last year.

As reported by the Royal Family, “The Queen passed away peacefully this afternoon at Balmoral. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and return to London tomorrow.”

The Queen’s grandson and his wife, Harry and Meghan Markle – who had a public showdown with the Palace, flew in from Canada to be at her bedside as doctors grew concerned about her health.

After being told to rest on Wednesday, the Queen pulled out of a meeting with her political advisors, according to the news agency AFP. Her outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his successor, Liz Truss, had audiences at Balmoral the previous day.

As the Queen has grown frailer, she has reduced her public engagements and has begun walking with a stick, as well as using a motorised buggy to tour the Chelsea Flower Show.

As part of the 70th anniversary celebrations of the Queen’s accession to the British throne, the UK celebrated the Platinum Jubilee, which took place in June. Her husband, Prince Phillip, died two months before his 100th birthday last year at the age of 99.
