Queen Elizabeth II passes away at 96; Buckingham Palace in mourning

Queen Elizabeth II has died in Scotland aged 96 after battling health problems since last October, the Royal Family announced Thursday.

Her grandson and his wife, Harry and Meghan Markle - who had a public showdown with the Palace, flew in from Canada.

Her close family rushed to her bedside as doctors grew “concerned” about her health on Thursday, Buckingham Palace said.

The Queen pulled out of a planned meeting with her senior political advisors on Wednesday, after being told to rest.

In recent months, the Queen appeared visibly frail and had a series of withdrawals from public engagements.

Her husband, Prince Phillip, died last year at the age of 99, two months before his 100th birthday.
