Queen Elizabeth II Dies at 96 After 70 Years on the Throne

Queen Elizabeth II, the longest lived and longest-reigning monarch in Britain’s history, has died at age 96. LONDON—Queen Elizabeth II, who defined the monarchy for generations of Britons, died on Thursday, plunging the U.K. into mourning and giving the country its first new head of state in 70 years, her son, King Charles III. Buckingham Palace said the 96-year-old queen—who ascended the throne when Winston Churchill was prime minister and the country was recovering from World War II—died at her residence in Balmoral, Scotland.
