The longest-reigning monarch in United Kingdom history and one of the world’s oldest monarchs, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away at 96. On Thursday, Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen had died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. It can be seen as her own Elizabethan era due to her seven-decade reign, the longest of any queen of her realm going back before the Norman conquest.

When Princess Elizabeth turned 21 in 1947, she promised on the radio that she would devote her entire life to serving the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth nations. Queen Elizabeth II fulfilled that vow over the course of her long life. After her death, the modern Elizabethan era has come to an end. Elizabeth probably met more people than anyone else during her 70 years as a monarch.
Despite this, most of her inner life and opinions remained a mystery. A few people only glimpsed her personality: her enjoyment of horse racing at Royal Ascot and her love of Welsh corgis. Even though Elizabeth developed an intuitive bond with many of her subjects, which strengthened with time, she maintained a sense of perspective that, in most cases, served her well.
President Biden Paid Tribute to Queen Elizabeth II
In a world where democracy is under attack daily, she will significantly impact the nation and the monarchy, an institution whose relevance is sometimes questioned. Yet, during her long reign, world leaders paid tribute to her. The United States President Biden hailed her as “an unmatched figure of dignity and constancy.” Even though she had never been destined for the throne, she felt the weight of her role as Queen.
Biden praised the Queen for dedicating “her whole life to their service and recalled the memory when Biden was a senator; he met the late Queen during a trip to the United Kingdom in 1982 when he was visiting the UK. “She charmed us with her wit and kindness, and she generously shared her wisdom with us,” wrote Biden. A fitting tribute to Queen Elizabeth II was found in the statement, which emphasized her grace, uncompromising devotion to duty, and the incomparable power of her example.
The New Monarch, King Charles III
After the Queen died, Charles, the former Prince of Wales, immediately assumed the throne without ceremony. However, he must follow several traditional and practical steps to become King. In his first decision as a new king, he was named King Charles III. Any one of his four names would have been acceptable to him, Charles Philip Arthur George. Others will have to change their titles as well.
A formal proclamation of Charles’ monarchy is expected on Saturday. In front of a ceremonial body called the Accession Council, the ceremony will take place at St James’s Palace in London. In addition to members of the Privy Council – past and present MPs, peers, and some senior civil servants – the Lord Mayor of London and the Commonwealth high commissioner will also attend the event.
Moreover, Charles became head of the Commonwealth, an alliance of 56 independent countries with a total population of 2.4 billion. As the head of state for 14 of these nations and the United Kingdom, the King serves as head of state. A Commonwealth realm comprises St Lucia, St Vincent Australia, Papua New Guinea, Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, Solomon Islands, TuvaluSaint Christopher and Nevis, and the Grenadines, New Zealand.
