More details have emerged following Queen Elizabeth II‘s passing earlier this month.
According to her death certificate made public by the National Records of Scotland on Sept. 29, the cause of the Queen’s passing was revealed to be “old age.” The British monarch died at her Balmoral Castle residence on Sept. 8 at age 96—marking the end to her 70-year reign on the throne. Her death certificate confirmed she passed away at 3:10 p.m. local time in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
The news of the Queen’s death came just hours after Buckingham Palace informed the public that doctors were “concerned” over her health after an evaluation.
Following the news of her death, fans around the world shared touching tributes in honor of Her Majesty, including her eldest son, now King Charles III, who ascended the throne after her passing.
“The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,” the 73-year-old wrote in a statement shared by Buckingham Palace. “We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother.”
