2 weeks ago 1793

The United Kingdom and the entire world are mourning the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, the Queen died peacefully at the age of 96 on Thursday at her Scottish estate, Balmoral Castle, in Scotland.

Charles, her eldest son, is now King. He became the new monarch immediately and is now known as King Charles III. He said that his mother’s death was a moment of “greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.” Newly-appointed Prime Minister Liz Truss, who met the Queen just this Tuesday, said that she was “the rock upon which modern Britain was built.”

The outpouring of love and support for the Queen and the Royal Family has been tremendous around the globe. 

In an ever-changing world, the Queen was a constant. This truly is the end of an era.

Queen Elizabeth II reigned for over 70 years. Her life was one of duty and service. She will be dearly missed.
