On September 8, 2022, the Queen, who had been monarch for 70 years, passed away at the age of 96.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.
The King and the Queen Consort will spend this evening and tomorrow in Balmoral before departing for London.
Plans for Queen Elizabeth’s succession have been in place for a while.
As Queen Elizabeth’s health has gotten worse, certain members of the Royal Family have been given more responsibility.
There were urgent worries about the Queen’s health, which were expressed much more directly than before and without any mention of this being limited to mobility issues.
There are also cautions about making assumptions without sufficient evidence, like that she may have fallen.
In 1952, Queen Elizabeth II became the monarch of the United Kingdom.
Five years before she became queen, in 1947, she wed Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. On April 9, 2021, Prince Philip passed away at the age of 99.
Who will succeed Queen Elizabeth on the throne after her death, one might wonder?
When Queen Elizabeth passes away, Prince Charles, the rightful successor to the British throne, ascends to the kingdom.
What to know about Prince Charles?
Charles, Prince of Wales, 73, is the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and the presumptive heir to the British monarchy.
Since 1952, he has served as heir apparent, Duke of Cornwall, and Duke of Rothesay, making him the oldest and most tenured heir apparent in British history.
The Prince and Princess of Wales were born as a result of his 1981 marriage to Diana Spencer.
William and Harry, two princes, were born to them. Following Diana’s passing in 1997, Charles and Diana divorced. In 2005, Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles, who is now known as the Duchess of Cornwall.
