Queen Elizabeth II, whose 70-year reign spanned wars, a pandemic, 13 presidents, and the winding down of Britain’s vast empire, has died. Her eldest son, Charles, is now king.
The longest-serving British monarch was 96.
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor is also survived by her other children, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward, and their spouses.
Prince William, next in line to the throne, and Prince Harry are among her eight grandchildren. She has a dozen great-grandchildren.
Where will Queen Elizabeth II be Buried?
Queen Elizabeth II, the seemingly eternal monarch who became a bright but inscrutable beacon of continuity in the United Kingdom during more than seven decades of rule, died Sept. 8 at Balmoral Castle, her estate in the Scottish Highlands. She was 96.
The Queen will then be buried alongside her parents and sister in the King George VI Memorial Chapel at Windsor Castle.
