Death certificate reveals the cause of Queen Elizabeth II's death

The Queen Elizabeth's death certificate, published by the National Records for Scotland (Thursday 9/29/2022), says old age is the cause of the Queen's death.

Elizabeth, the longest-reigning British monarch, died at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle, her summer residence in the Scottish Highlands, on September 8.

The certificate set the time of death at 3:10 pm (14:10 GMT).

Buckingham Palace issued a statement after 12:30 p.m. that day saying doctors were concerned about the Queen's health and that she would remain under medical supervision. The death was officially announced at 6:30 pm. It came two days after the Queen's last official mission, when Liz Terrass was appointed prime minister.

The Queen, who remained 70 years on the throne, has suffered from what Buckingham Palace called "episodic movement problems" since the end of last year, forcing her to cancel most of her public engagements.

The certificate shows that her daughter, Princess Anne, took over the registration of the death on September 16.
