“The Queen died peacefully this afternoon at Balmoral,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

“The King and Queen Consort will spend the evening at Balmoral before returning to London tomorrow.”

Her eldest son, Charles, 73, will be crowned King of the United Kingdom and King of 14 other realms, including Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.

After doctors expressed concern about her health, her family rushed to her Scottish home, Balmoral Castle. She had been suffering from “episodic mobility problems” since the end of last year, forcing her to cancel nearly all of her public engagements, according to Buckingham Palace.
