LONDON — After 70 years of rule, Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving queen, passed away in Balmoral at the age of 96.

After worries about her health mounted early on Thursday, her family gathered at her Scottish estate.

The Queen saw significant societal change after ascending to the throne in 1952.

After her passing, her eldest son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, would take the throne as the new King and ruler of 14 Commonwealth states, leading the nation in grief.

Following the Queen’s placement under medical supervision, all of her children made their way to Balmoral, which is close to Aberdeen.

Prince William, her grandson, is also present, and Prince Harry is en route.
