The Buckingham Palace announced yesterday: Queen Elizabeth died at the age of 96.
“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow,” the palace said in a statement.
They say an era for the U.K. has ended and the The funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey in nine days, which will see the nation observe a two minutes’ silence, before the queen is buried at Windsor Castle.
But what did the queen die from?
There still hasn’t been an official statement but, Dr. Deb Cohen-Jones told the Daily Mail that photos of the Queen’s blueish hands were a red flag about her declining health.
“It looks like there is possibly evidence of peripheral vascular disease. It’s a blood circulation disorder that causes the blood vessels outside of your heart and brain to narrow, block, or spasm,” she said.
“It can sometimes result in heart failure. If your peripheral circulation is that poor, organs aren’t receiving a good blood supply. It can be a sign of multi organ failure.”
Sadly, it is likely the disease would have caused the Queen “a lot of pain” as the images pointed to the illness being severe.
It’s not known how long the Queen suffered from the disease as she mostly wore gloves in public.
The Queen health has been robust and had medical checkups regularly, but concerns rose last October after she spent a night in the hospital and canceled a series of planned engagements, including hosting world leaders at the UN climate change summit in November.
She had been at a clinic for unspecified tests.
Her appearances since then had been rare, although she returned to public duties before the start of her record-breaking 70th year as monarch on February 6.
There’s still official statement to be made.
