Queen Elizabeth II Passed

Queen Elizabeth II sadly passed away on September 8th at the age of 96, in her Scottish estate known as the Balmoral castle. The cause of her passing was said to be health issues that occurred the morning of her death. Her son, Prince Charles, said “We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother.” The Prime Minister, Liz Truss, stated that the Queen “provided us with the stability and strength that we needed,” as stated on BBC UK News. After the announcement of her death on the 8th, the Queen’s eldest son and heir, Prince Charles became King Charles III at the age of 73. As King Charles takes the throne many things will change such as the national anthem, the money, stamps, the flags, and most importantly, the family titles. The United Kingdom’s national anthem will change from “God save the Queen” to “God save the King.” The money will change from Queen Elizabeth’s face to King Charles face, as well as the stamps changing to the Kings initials. The flags that are on all government buildings will be replaced but the new logo and colors have not been discussed as of right now, said by USA Today. Although the people in the United States were not much effected by the Queens death it still comes as a shock that such a well-known leader had passed after 70 years as the Queen of the England. Not only has Queen Elizabeth’s death been deeply felt in the United Kingdom but also around the world.
