By Caroline Davies 1 QUEEN ELIZABETH II, the longest-serving monarch in British history, has died aged 96, drawing to a close the country’s second Elizabethan era, and heralding the reign of her son, King Charles III. The monarch, for whom abdication was never an option, died peacefully at Balmoral on Thursday afternoon, two days after undertaking her final public constitutional duty, with the appointment of the 15th prime minister of her 70-year reign. 2 Her death means Charles now 0 – 1 TO HERALD“"her´ld‘ einläuten — reign “reIn‘ Regentschaft — abdication “ÆœbdI"keIS´n‘ Abdankung — to undertake erfüllen — constitutional “ÆkÅnstI"tSu…S´n´l‘ verfassungsmäßig — appointment “´"pOIntm´nt‘ Ernennung 2 – 3 duchess “"døtS´s‘ Herzogin; s.w.u. duke Herzog — Queen Consort Gemahlin des Königs — to mourn profoundly “mO…n; pr´"faUndli‘ becomes king, and the Duchess of Cornwall the Queen Consort. In a statement on Thursday evening, the King said: “The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family. We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world. During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held.” 3 All four of her children had rushed to Balmoral after Buckingham Palace announced in a statement at 12.32pm that she was under medical supervision at Balmoral after her doctors said they were “concerned for her health”. … 4 At 6.30pm, Buckingham Palace announced: “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 Buckingham Palace flag was lowered to half-mast. 5 Addressing the nation from outside Downing Street, the prime minister, Liz Truss, who über etw. in tiefer Trauer sein — passing Tod — cherished geschätzt — sovereign “"sÅv´rIn‘ Souverän(in) — realm “relm‘ h.: Mitgliedsland des Commonwealth — countless unzählige — to comfort trösten — to sustain s.o. jdm.

She praised the monarch’s “dignity and grace”, and a “life of service [that] stretched beyond most of our living memories”. She concluded with the words: “God save the King.” 6 As tributes flow in from across the globe, the nation now enters a period of official mourning, which begins on Friday and will last for ten days. As is traditional, officials brought a notice confirming the Queen’s death to the gates of Buckingham Palace. Crowds gathered outside royal residences, many in tears. Elizabeth II will be accorded a state funeral at Westminster Abbey, Continued on page 12 — to address s.o. zu jdm. sprechen — dignity “"dIgn´ti‘ Würde — grace Gunst; Freundlichkeit — to conclude “k´n"klu…d‘ schließen — tribute Würdigung — official mourning Staatstrauer — official h.: Palastmitarbeiter(in) — to accord s.o. “´"kO…d‘ jdm. etw. zuteilwerden lassen
