Update: Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022, at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, according to an official tweet from The Royal Family. Members of the royal family, including the queen’s four children, and her grandchildren, Prince William and Prince Harry, traveled to Balmoral to be with her while she remained under medical supervision. In light of her death, her son, Charles, is now the King of England, and his wife, Camilla, is the Queen Consort.

Talk about a boss! Queen Elizabeth II has held the throne for the last seventy years. Not only was she the longest-reigning female monarch of all time, but she was also one of the longest-reigning monarchs ever.

However, in the past few years, the now 96-year-old regent’s health has been in decline, which unfortunately inspired some ugly death hoaxes to spread. The truth is that while she's faced a handful of health scares — including spraining her back and testing positive for COVID — she's royally conquered them all.

However, Queen Elizabeth II was recently under medical supervision at the Balmoral, her estate in the Scottish Highlands (Her primary residence is Buckingham Palace).

"Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision. The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral," the palace wrote in a statement published on Sept. 8, 2022.
