Messages come from Britain, that Queen Elizabeth II died today at the age of 97. A few hours ago, the royal doctor urged the British to "prepare for the worst" due to the sharp deterioration in the condition of the monarch. Then came reports of the cancellation of the changing of the guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace and an urgent departure to the Scottish Balmoral of members of the royal family, led by Prince Charles.
First, the British press published a message about the death of the Queen. Then came the denials.
At the moment, information about the death of Elizabeth II is confirmed by the official account of Buckingham Palace.
Mourning will now be declared in the United Kingdom.
Throne, under the rules of British succession, goes to Charles, who in his 73 years continued to be a prince.
Recall, just a couple of days ago, Elizabeth II met with Liz Truss, formally approving that as the new British prime minister, and also accepted the resignation of Boris Johnson.
