Queen of England has been reported dead: Queen Elizabeth Dies at 96

LONDON — Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, has died in Scotland. Prince Charles is now king.

  • The royal family said in a statement: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
  • Read The Washington Post’s obituary for Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The queen has been planning for her succession for some time — and Charles has been increasingly stepping in to take on more royal duties.
