Her death came shortly after it was revealed that doctors were concerned about her health and that she Family rushed to her bed at Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands. Later in the day, the royal family tweeted: “The Queen died peacefully in Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain in Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow.”

Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, was among those who rushed to Balmoral to join his grandmother, although his wife Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, stayed behind in London, according to a statement reported by Time. According to the Express, Harry and Meghan have already been to the UK for a number of performances with their charities.

The Queen’s successor, Charles, now known as King Charles, issued a statement on Elziabeth’s death. “The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of great sadness for me and all members of my family.” he tweeted. “During this time of grief and change, my family and I are comforted and strengthened by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection that was so widespread for the Queen.
