BREAKING: Queen Elizabeth II of Britain passed away at the age of ninety-six


Queen Elizabeth II died at the Balmoral Castle, her summer home in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. While The Queen has faced a number of recent health scares, including a COVID-19 diagnosis, difficulty walking, and a stay overnight in the hospital, medical professionals speculate she died due to natural causes, however the manner of death has not yet been specified. Sources in contact with the family say that she “died peacefully” and was surrounded by her closest family, including her son Prince Charles (Now King Charles III), the heir to the throne. 

   Queen Elizabeth was the world’s longest reigning monarch, having served the country of Britain for seventy years. On February 6, 1952, Queen Elizabeth became queen after her father, King George VI, passed away unexpectedly due to lung cancer. 

   Under the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, many imperial territories, such as Sierra Leone and Barbados, became independent countries. As Prime Minister Liz Truss, appointed by the Queen this Tuesday puts it, the Queen was “a rock on which modern Britain was built, Britain is the great country it is today because of her.” Truss recently spoke on Downing Street in London as a way to pay tribute to the legacy the Queen left behind.
