Queen Elizabeth II’s cause of death released

A cause of death has been released for Queen Elizabeth II.

The British monarch died of “old age” at 3:10 p.m. on Sept. 8, the National Records of Scotland said in a document that came out Thursday, according to People.

Queen Elizabeth was 96. Her death at Balmoral Castle in Scotland ended a record-setting 70-year reign as queen of the United Kingdom.

A funeral service for the queen was held Sept. 19 at the centuries-old Westminster Abbey church in London, with her burial taking place later that day at St. George’s Chapel near Windsor Castle. She was laid to rest next to her late husband, Prince Philip, who died last year at age 99.

The funeral concluded a 10-day mourning period in which family members including the queen’s four children participated in coffin processions through Edinburgh and London.

Her coffin laid in state for four days at London’s Westminster Hall, with people lining up for as long as 24 hours to pay their respects ahead of the funeral.

The funeral was attended by about 2,000 people, including royals such as Prince William and Prince Harry and world leaders such as President Biden.

Queen Elizabeth’s eldest child, 73-year-old King Charles, became the British monarch following his mother’s death. He left a note on her coffin that read, “In loving and devoted memory. Charles R,” with the “R” referring to “Rex,” or “king” in Latin.

The queen was 25 years old when her monarchy began in 1952 after her father’s death. A platinum jubilee commemorating the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s monarchy took place earlier this year.
