Buckingham palace announced that Queen Elizabeth, the longest serving Monarch of Britain, passed away peacefully at 96 on Thursday afternoon.
The Queen postponed the privy council meeting as doctors advised the Monarch to take an entire day’s rest on Wednesday.
In 1953 the Queen came to the throne and glimpsed enormous social change.
With her death, her eldest son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, will direct the country in grieving as the new King and head of state for 14 Commonwealth realms.
Buckingham Palace stated that “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.
In addition, the palace announced that “The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
All the Queen’s children travelled to Balmoral, near Aberdeen, after doctors identified the Queen under medical surveillance.
Her grandson, Prince William, is also there, with his brother, Prince Harry, on his way.
This year the Queen stayed at Balmoral for the appointment of the newly elected leader of the conservative party Liz Truss as Monarch was suffering from mobility issues at the age of ninety-six.
The change in tradition happened to avoid any last-minute rearrangements and problems.
On Tuesday’s audience, Monarch was pictured smiling, dressed in a blouse, cardigan and a Balmoral tartan skirt, and using a walking stick.
She first met outgoing leader Boris Johnson before appointing the new prime minister, Ms Truss, at Balmoral for the first time in her authority, in a break from tradition.
The Queen generally appoints prime ministers from Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle.
