Queen Elizabeth II Passes Away

Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-serving monarch in British history and an icon instantly recognizable to billions of people worldwide, has died aged 96, Buckingham Palace said on Thursday.

Her eldest son, Charles, 73, succeeds as king immediately, according to centuries of protocol, beginning a new, less certain chapter for the royal family after the queen’s record-breaking 70-year reign.

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and return to London tomorrow.
