Queen Elizabeth’s death at age 96

People, journalists, tourists and television crews gathered in front of Buckingham Palace waiting for news about the state of health of Queen Elizabeth, who unfortunately passed away this afternoon, 8 September. The royal family’s official account made the announcement via Twitter. The family of the sovereign of England arrived at Balmoral in the afternoon and national television changed its schedule for the next few hours. The citizens waited until the end for the queen to recover.

Thousands of people are still gathered outside the gates of Buckingham Palace in mourning. The crowd cries for the queen and sings in chorus “God Save the King” for the new King Charles III. Not even the rain discouraged the citizens gathered in front of the Palace to pay tribute to the 96-year-old sovereign.

Police officers remained guarding the entrance leading to the Scottish castle where the queen died this afternoon. At Elizabeth II’s bedside were her 4 children Carlo (Heir to the Throne), Anna, Andrea and Prince Edward.

Prince William, third in the line of succession, and Prince Harry were also summoned. Kate Middleton stayed in London for the first day of school for her children George, Charlotte and Louis. Meghan also did not leave the English capital.

The Queen unfortunately passed away this afternoon, Thursday, September 8th. The royal family’s official twitter account made the announcement. The state funeral will be held in ten days as set out in the London Bridge plan. The sovereign will be buried in the King George VI Memorial Chapel, inside San Giorgio Chapel, along with her parents, sister and husband, Prince Philip, who died on April 9, 2021.

Weddings were also celebrated in the Chapel: the last in 2018 between Harry, second son of the new King of England Charles III, and Meghan Markle.
