Queen Elizabeth II of England died at Balmoral Castle, Scotland, this Thursday, September 8, 2022, at the age of 96. She was the head of state of the United Kingdom as well as many other sovereign states and their dependencies, called Commonwealth Kingdoms.
Born in London on April 26, 1926, she reigned for more than seventy years since her accession to the throne in February 1952.
She leaves a country in the midst of an economic and social crisis, just days after appointing a new Prime Minister at the head of the government on September 6 in the person of Liz Truss.
Her son Charles therefore becomes the new head of state, under the name of Charles III.
