The monarch, who was the longest-reigning in British history, passed away on Thursday 8 September 2022.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.
“The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
King Charles III also made a statement about the death of his mother, which read: “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.
“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother.
“During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held.”
Her Majesty’s death comes just months after she celebrated her platinum jubilee with a four-day bank holiday weekend in June.
She officially marked seven decades on the throne on 6 February this year, but her platinum jubilee celebrations took place from the 2 to 5 June.
In addition to being the longest-reigning British monarch and having a particular fondness for corgis, the Queen was also globally recognised for her bold sartorial choices.
Never one to shy away from wearing vibrant colours, the royal frequently donned bright shades of pink, blue, green and yellow to public engagements, much to the delight of the crowds she encountered.
