Who was Queen Elizabeth?
Queen Elizabeth II was Queen of the United Kingdom from 6 February 1952 until her death. Her 70 years and 214 days of rule were the longest of any British queen and the second-longest of any monarch of a sovereign state in recorded history.
She presided over fourteen more Commonwealth nations in addition to the UK at the time of her death. Elizabeth was the presumed successor when her father assumed the throne in 1936 following the abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII.
She rarely participated in interviews, and little was known about her thoughts and feelings. She did not directly express her political ideas in a public setting, and it is improper to inquire about or make public the monarch’s opinions.
Queen Elizabeth Health | Death
The Queen and a few members of her staff and family tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in February 2022 after experiencing “minor cold-like symptoms.” She reportedly made a full recovery on February 28 and spent some time at Frogmore with her family.
She had her first in-person meeting since being informed that she had COVID on March 7 at Windsor Castle with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Later, she said that the COVID infection “leaves one feeling quite worn out and exhausted.”
Doctors’ concerns prompted Buckingham Palace to make the announcement that the Queen was being monitored medically at Balmoral Castle on September 8, 2022.
Prince William and Prince Harry traveled to be with the Queen, together with her four children and daughters-in-law. That evening, it was determined that she had passed away, commencing Operation London Bridge and Operation Unicorn.
Queen Elizabeth Funeral
Plans for the UK’s future after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II are known as Operation London Bridge. It entails preparing for the death announcement, the official period of mourning, and the arrangements of her state funeral.
The plan began the day after Elizabeth II passed away on September 8, 2022, and it will conclude the following day. In addition to Operation London Bridge, several Commonwealth nations under Elizabeth II’s rule have also prepared their own plans.
What happens now that Queen Elizabeth has passed?
There has never been a time in history when a monarch did not exist. The Accession Council, a ceremonial council that convenes in St. James’s Palace following a monarch’s passing, will meet with the Privy Council the day after the queen passes away. Charles will be recognized as the king of England.
Why Queen Elizabeth is so special?
The Queen was special in many ways. She has ruled longer than any previous monarch in British history, and as a result, she has gained a lot of love and respect around the world.
The Queen wore clothing with an emphasis on what is appropriate rather than what is fashionable.
She adopted the habit of donning hats and overcoats of predominantly solid colors when out in public so that she could stand out from the crowd. A group of five dressers, a dressmaker, and a milliner took care of her clothes.
Queen Elizabeth Net Worth
Elizabeth’s personal wealth was the subject of speculation for many years. Estimates of £100 million were labeled “grossly exaggerated” by Buckingham Palace in 1993.
She inherited her mother’s property, estimated to be worth £70 million, in 2002. The Crown Estate, which had assets worth £14.3 billion in 2019, is kept in trust and could not be sold or possessed by her personally.
