Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen’s cause of death officially revealed

Queen Elizabeth II’s cause of death has been made publicly available for the first time on her death certificate.

The official document, which was registered in Aberdeenshire on September 16th, reveals that the 96-year-old monarch died from “old age.”

This cause of death can be listed on the death certificates of those who are over the age of 80 and whose health gradually declined over time while being observed by their long-term doctor.

It was also revealed in the document that Her late Majesty died at 15:10 on September 8th – more than three hours before the news was made public.

The Princess Royal was the informant of her mother’s death on the official documentation.

Queen Elizabeth II died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland with King Charles and Princess Anne by her side. Buckingham Palace announced her death later that day, simply saying: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.”
