Official death certificate revealed Queen Elizabeth II’s cause of death

The official death certificate says that Queen Elizabeth II died of 'old age,' but it doesn't say anything else.

The National Records of Scotland released parts of the queen's death certificate on Thursday. These parts showed that the 96-year-old monarch died at 3:10 p.m. local time.

The queen died on Sept. 8 at Balmoral Castle, the royal residence in the Scottish highlands where she spent her summer vacations. At 12:32 p.m. that day, the palace released a highly unusual statement saying that doctors were concerned for her health.

The news spread immediately, and soon it was revealed that the queen’s children and grandchildren, including Prince William and Prince Harry, were rushing to her bedside.

Six hours later, the palace issued a statement saying that the queen had “died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.”

The time of death suggests that only the queen’s two eldest children — Charles and Anne — had made it by then to Balmoral.

The document says that the person who died worked as "Her Majesty the Queen." It also says that Princess Anne, the queen's only daughter, was the "informant." This means that she registered the death by filling out the same paperwork that every family in Scotland does when someone dies.

Anne shared a personal statement several days after the queen’s passing, saying “I was fortunate to share the last 24 hours of my dearest mother’s life.”

Britain held an elaborate state funeral for the late monarch on Sept. 19 that more than 90 world leaders attended. She was laid to rest at Windsor Castle beside her parents and late husband, Prince Philip, who died just a year shy of the century mark in 2021. All four were interred at the King George VI memorial chapel, an annex within St. George’s Chapel on the centuries-old castle grounds.
