After France’s Louis XIV, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II had the second-longest reign in history. She passed away yesterday at the age of 96. According to a statement from Buckingham Palace, she passed away quietly at her residence in Balmoral, Scotland. Several foreign leaders have released messages in her honor.

Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, becomes king instantly in accordance with a centuries-old tradition, ushering in a new, less secure era for the royal family following the queen’s record-breaking 70-year rule.”The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,” King Charles stated.

Following the passing of Elizabeth II, Downing Street declared on Friday that King Charles III has the full support of the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss’ cabinet. A spokesman for the cabinet told reporters that the ministers observed a moment of silence for the late queen as they supported His Majesty the King during his and the country’s ongoing mourning. French President Emmanuel Macron praised Queen Elizabeth II’s “wisdom and empathy” on Friday, saying that “we all feel an emptiness” in the wake of her passing.
