LONDON — Queen Elizabeth II died of “old age,” according to her official death certificate, which does not list any contributing factors.
In excerpts from the queen’s death certificate, released Thursday by the National Records of Scotland, the 96-year-old monarch’s local time of death is shown as 3:10 p.m.
The queen died on September 8 at Balmoral Castle, the royal residence in the Scottish highlands where she spent her summer holidays. At 12:32 p.m. that day, the palace issued a highly unusual statement saying that doctors were concerned about her health.
The news spread immediately, and it was soon revealed that the queen’s children and grandchildren, including Prince William and Prince Harry, were running to her side.
Six hours later, the palace released a statement saying the queen had “died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon”.
The document lists the queen’s occupation as “Her Majesty the Queen”. Her daughter, Princess Anne, is listed as the “informant.” Several days after Elizabeth’s death, Anne had shared a personal statement saying, “I was lucky enough to share the last 24 hours of my dear mother’s life.”
Britain held an elaborate state funeral for the late monarch on September 19 attended by more than 90 world leaders. She was buried at Windsor Castle alongside her late husband, Prince Philip.
