On Thursday, Queen Elizabeth II of England died at the age of 96.
According to legend, the queen died peacefully.
On Thursday, a large crowd gathered at the Buckingham Palace residence in London, as concern about the Queen’s health grew.
According to AFP, around 100 people braved torrential rain to stand at the palace gates as senior royals rushed to Balmoral in Scotland, where the queen was being treated.
In a statement, the Royal Family said, “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.”
“The King and Queen Consort will spend the evening at Balmoral before returning to London tomorrow.”
The Queen’s children had flocked to her Scottish Highland retreat, Balmoral, including Charles, Princess Anne, 72, Prince Andrew, 62, and Prince Edward, 58.
Charles’ sons, Prince William and his estranged brother, Prince Harry, joined them.
The queen had appointed Liz Truss as the 15th Prime Minister of her reign two days earlier, and she was photographed smiling but frail and using a walking stick.
One photograph from the meeting caused concern because it showed a deep purple bruise on the monarch’s right hand.
Queen Elizabeth, the longest reigning monarch in British history, ascended to the throne following World War II and reigned for 70 years.
