(RepublicanInformer.com)- The official cause of death for Queen Elizabeth II was disclosed on Thursday.
Old age caused the 96-year-old monarch’s death.
According to the certificate, which National Records of Scotland released, Elizabeth passed away on September 8 at 3.10 p.m. at Balmoral Castle in Ballater, Scotland. Princess Anne, daughter of the monarch, signed the contract.
The King George VI Memorial Chapel, a section of St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, houses the queen’s tomb.
Ten days after she was buried in the tomb, St. George’s Chapel reopened to the public on Thursday, as hundreds of mourners lined up outside Windsor to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth.
A slab of hand-carved Belgian black marble designates the tomb. Along with the names of her husband, mother, and father, the queen’s name is carved on the ledger stone in brass letter inlays.
Royal admirers must purchase a ticket to Windsor Castle to enter the chapel. Adults pay 26.50 pounds ($28.75) from Sunday through Friday and 28.50 pounds ($30.00) on Saturdays.
Anne Daley, 65, from Cardiff, who arrived at the castle at 7:30 a.m., far in advance of the 10 a.m. opening hour, was one of the early entrants. As tens of thousands of people filed through Westminster Hall over four days to view the queen’s lying in state before her funeral, she was also one of the first in line.
“The castle feels empty, gloomy. Nobody’s living in it. You know, you’ve lost the queen, you’ve lost the duke, you lost the corgis,” Daley said. “It’s like when you’ve sold your house, and all the history is gone.”
On September 19, there was a state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout royal sorrow, numerous commemorative events were attended by members of the royal family, including King Charles III, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, Princess Anne, Prince William, and Prince Harry.
Queen Elizabeth died on February 6, 2022. She was the longest-married and most-traveled British head of state at the time of her death. Her Majesty’s “greatest accomplishments” are undoubtedly the U.K.’s adoration for her, according to a royal biographer.
