Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in Britain, died at the age of 96 after 70 years on the throne. She died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland and was surrounded by members of the royal family. Prince Charles, her son, automatically became king and will be known as King Charles III, with his wife Camilla becoming the Queen Consort. The loss of Queen Elizabeth will have a significant impact on both the nation and the monarchy, which she helped stabilize and modernize over decades of social change and family scandals. A funeral is to be held after 10 days of official mourning.
