Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, died aged 96, after reigning for 70 years on September 8. The monarch died peacefully at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer. Ascending the throne in 1952, the Queen reigned Britain becoming a symbol of stability and was often called “Britain’s grandmother”.
Since her passing away, her son, King Charles III has taken her place.
“I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world,” King Charles III said on his mother’s passing away.
But the royal family has been through a lot in the past one and a half month. Here are top 8 developments in the royal family since Queen Elizabeth II’s death:
