Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom died of old age, according to her death certificate, which has been published by the National Records of Scotland.

Elizabeth, the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, died at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle, her summer home in the Scottish Highlands, on September 8.

The certificate, released on Thursday, records the time of his death as 3:10 pm (1410 GMT).

The detail confirms that the queen died when several members of her family, including her grandchildren, the new Prince of Wales, Prince William and the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, were still traveling to Scotland to be with her.

Her son, now King Charles III, and her daughter, Princess Anne, were at Balmoral when she died. They had already been in Scotland performing public engagements before September 8.

Buckingham Palace had issued a statement shortly after 12:30 pm (1130 GMT) that day to say that doctors were concerned about the queen’s health and that she would remain under medical supervision. Her death was officially announced at 6:30 pm (17:30 GMT).

She had carried out her last official duty, appointing Liz Truss as Prime Minister, just two days earlier.

The queen, who spent 70 years on the throne, had been suffering from what Buckingham Palace called “episodic mobility problems” since late last year, forcing her to withdraw from almost all her public engagements.

His post came as hundreds of people queued outside Windsor Castle on Thursday, when the iconic royal residence and its historic St George’s Chapel, where Elizabeth was buried last week, reopened after the monarch’s death.

Long lines of tourists, many with advance tickets, stretched through the narrow streets outside the majestic castle walls for a chance to visit the site.

Palaces and royal residences have been closed since the queen’s death, including Windsor, west of London, where she spent much of her time.

Elizabeth was buried alongside her father, King George VI, and her mother, also named Elizabeth.

The late queen’s husband, Prince Philip, who died last year, is also buried there, as are the ashes of her younger sister, Princess Margaret.
