Queen Elizabeth II, who ruled the UK for 70 years, passed away at Balmoral at the age of 96.

Queen Elizabeth : After worries about her health grew early on Thursday, her family gathered at her Scottish estate. The Queen saw significant social change after ascending to the throne in 1952.

The reign of Queen Elizabeth II as head of state covered the post-World War II period of austerity, the change from an empire to a Commonwealth, the end of the Cold War, and the UK’s membership in – and exit from – the European Union.

15 prime ministers served during her reign, including Liz Truss, who was chosen by the Queen earlier this week and was born 101 years after Winston Churchill in 1975.

Throughout her rule, she met with her prime minister on a weekly basis. Crowds waiting for information on the Queen’s condition at Buckingham Palace in London started wailing when they learned of her passing.

At 18:30 BST, the Union flag above the palace was lowered to half-staff. Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born the Queen on April 21, 1926, in Mayfair, London.

Few could have predicted she would become the monarch, but in December 1936, her uncle Edward VIII abdicated the monarchy in order to wed American Wallis Simpson, who had previously been divorced twice.

Elizabeth was crowned at Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953, at the age of 27, in front of an estimated 20 million viewers of the then-record TV broadcast.

With the demise of the British Empire abroad and the swinging ’60s eroding social conventions at home, the following decades would witness significant change.

For this less reverent era, Elizabeth changed the monarchy by interacting with the populace through walkabouts, royal visits, and attendance at public events.

She visited every Commonwealth nation at least once, demonstrating her unwavering dedication to the organization.
