Yesterday evening, 8th September 2022, Royal Communications issued a very short statement on the Buckingham Palace website. It said simply:
“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.”
The news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who acceded to the throne back in 1952 following the death of her father, King George VI, has been met with great sorrow and sadness across the UK, the Commonwealth and right across the Globe.
With crowds of people already flocking to Royal residences around the UK to express their condolences, a period of national mourning begins. We await news of the State Funeral which is likely to happen within the next two weeks at Westminster Abbey.
The whole team at Wealth DFM are saddened by the news of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. She has served this country so fastidiously and selflessly for seventy years and it is the end of an era for most of us in the UK who cannot remember life without her as Queen. She will be sadly missed by many.
