Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, head of the Commonwealth and monarch of 15 countries, has died aged 96 after more than 70 years on the throne, Buckingham Palace announced on Thursday.

Queen Elizabeth died at the Balmoral royal estate in Scotland this afternoon after having suffered from health problems since last October. She was in her Platinum Jubilee year, marking 70 years since she succeeded her father king George VI in 1952. All her children – including the heir to the throne Prince Charles – rushed to be at her side at Balmoral, aides said.

To celebrate the late Queen’s reign, here are 20 photos to remember her by:

‘The Queen died peacefully’

Buckingham Palace announced the Queen’s death in a short statement, triggering 10 days of national mourning and an outpouring of tributes to her long life and record-breaking reign. “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement at 6:30 pm (1730 GMT). “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.” 

The eldest of her four children, Charles, Prince of Wales, who at 73 is the oldest heir apparent in British history, becomes king immediately. The queen’s death came after the palace announced on Thursday that doctors were “concerned” for her health and recommended she stayed under medical supervision.

Britain’s longest-reigning monarch

Throughout her tenure, the queen built a bond with the people of Great Britain through a seemingly endless series of public appearances as she opened libraries, dedicated hospitals and bestowed honors on deserving citizens. The Queen’s passing comes just three months after people across Britain paused over a long holiday weekend to celebrate her 70 years on the throne.

While crowds of cheering, flag-waving fans filled the streets around Buckingham Palace throughout four days of festivities, the Queen herself made only two brief appearances on the palace balcony to wave to her subjects. Elizabeth had increasingly handed over duties to Charles and other members of the royal family in recent months as she recovered from a bout of Covid-19, began using a cane and struggled to get around.
