Queen Elizabeth, celebrity | Queen Elizabeth is dead

Queen Elizabeth (96) has died. The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral on Thursday afternoon, the British Royal House wrote in a statement.

The heirs to the throne will stay at Balmoral tonight, before returning to London on Friday.

Queen Elizabeth was crowned queen in 1953. Since then, 15 different prime ministers have ruled the country.

Following the news, the monarch’s immediate family traveled to Queen Balmoral’s residence in Scotland.

Surprised with cane

Queen Elizabeth has been in good health for her many years on the throne and has rarely been absent from office for long.

In recent years, however, his health has declined.

In October 2021, the Queen surprised many when she appeared at a service at Westminster Abbey with a cane, and soon after news broke that Queen Elizabeth had been admitted to hospital. However, she only stayed in the hospital for one night, where doctors observed her and took tests.

The following month, the British monarch missed the Remembrance Day commemoration after breaking her back, and on top of that she also spent a lot of time out of the public eye due to the coronavirus. For the same reason, several events have also been canceled, so the queen has also not been seen much among people in the past year.

In February 2022, she was also infected with the coronavirus, but quickly recovered.

Celebrated 70 years on the throne

As mentioned, Queen Elizabeth was Britain’s longest serving monarch – and in 2022 she marked 70 years on the throne.

The 70th anniversary celebration took place in June this year and spanned four days, from Thursday to Sunday.

The Queen herself, on the other hand, skipped many platinum anniversary events due to her health, but did appear on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at one point – under the cheers of royal fans who gathered outside.

Millions of Britons took part in the celebrations, and to mark the anniversary, street parties were held across the country.
