Queen Elizabeth II’s death certificate indicates that the elderly monarch “died of old age“. According to the document published by the National Records of Scotland (the central state archive of the state of Scotland based in Edinburgh), the queen died of “old age” on September 8 at 3:10 pm local time at Balmoral Castle. The official announcement was made by Buckingham Palace at 7.30 pm, after a day that had kept the whole world in suspense.
Queen Elizabeth, who died in Scotland at the age of 96 and after celebrating 70 years of reign (she was crowned on 6 February 1952), left the throne to her eldest son, Charles, who became king under the name of Charles III; his wife Camilla has obtained the status of queen consort.
She was born in 1926, she was the daughter of George VI and married Philip Mountbatten, on that occasion appointed Duke of Edinburgh. Four children were born from the marriage: Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward.
