Say goodbye: Celebrities flooded social media with tribute to Queen Elizabeth II after she died 'peacefully' in Balmoral

Her son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, is now King Charles III as the world mourns his mother, Britain’s longest reigning monarch.

All of Her Majesty’s children had been rushed to Balmoral today after doctors became ‘concerned’ about her health. Hours later, she died surrounded by her family.

At 6:30 p.m., her death was confirmed. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: ‘The Queen passed away peacefully this afternoon in Balmoral. The King and The Queen Consort remain in Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow.”

With the death of the Queen, Britain and her Commonwealth realms will enter a ten-day period of mourning as millions of her subjects in the UK and abroad come to terms with her passing.

And when her son takes the throne, there will also be a celebration of her historic 70th reign that saw her reach her platinum jubilee this year – a milestone unlikely to be reached again by a British monarch.

Charles, the king, said: ‘The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a moment of the greatest sorrow for me and all members of my family.

“We deeply mourn the passing of a beloved sovereign and dearly beloved mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the rich and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.

“During this period of grief and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was held so widely.”

Tributes are already pouring in for Her Majesty, for many the greatest Briton in history and arguably the most famous woman on Earth. To billions of people around the world, she was the face of the British.

To her subjects at home, Her Majesty was the anchor of the nation, standing steadfast no matter what storm she or her country faced – from the uncertain aftermath of World War II to, more recently, the pandemic. She was also steadfast in dealing with tragedy and scandal in her own family, most recently the fallout from Megxit and the death of her beloved husband Prince Philip.

Charles will tour the UK for his mother’s funeral with his wife Camilla, who the Queen announced she would be crowned Queen consort to her eldest son in a landmark statement marking Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee and 70 years on the throne on February 6.

The Queen’s passing came more than a year after her beloved husband Philip, her “strength and guide,” who died in April 2021 at the age of 99. Since his funeral, where she was harrowingly alone due to lockdown restrictions, her own health has faltered, missing more and more events, mainly due to ‘mobility issues’ and fatigue.

In July she traveled to Scotland for her annual summer holiday, but canceled her traditional welcome at Balmoral Castle in favor of a small, more private event due to her health, believed to be linked to her ability to stand. And at the end of July, Prince Charles represented his mother and opened the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham with the Duchess of Cornwall. At the end of August, Queen missed the Braemar Gathering – the first time not to attend the Highland Games in her 70-year reign.

But she was well enough to meet Boris Johnson in Balmoral to accept his resignation, before asking her government’s 15th Prime Minister, Liz Truss, to form a government. Her Majesty, who stood with the support of a stick and smiled as she greeted Mrs. Truss in front of a blazing fire, hadn’t been seen in public for two months. It would be her last photo.

Today all her children and Prince William flew to Scotland from all over the UK to get to Her Majesty’s bedside before she died. Prince Harry didn’t travel to Scotland from Windsor with his family – and Meghan Markle stayed at Frogmore Cottage. But he didn’t make it to Balmoral in time and landed in Aberdeen about 15 minutes after his grandmother’s death.
