Queen Elizabeth II‘s cause of death has been confirmed on her death certificate. The late monarch died because of old age, the document revealed.

Douglas James Allan Glass is noted as the certifying registered medical practitioner. Old age was the only cause of death listed, with no other contributing factors.

Paul Lowe, the Registrar General for Scotland, confirmed that the Queen’s death was registered in Aberdeenshire on September 16 2022 .

Announcing her death on September 8, Buckingham Palace said: “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 monarch had pulled out of a virtual Privy Council the day before her death, around 24 hours after welcoming Liz Truss as Prime Minister at her home in the Scottish Highlands on the advice of royal doctors. She had also pulled out of key events due to ongoing mobility issues in recent months.

But Her Majesty thrilled crowds on the first day of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations on June 2 when she appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony and later at Windsor Castle. The Queen succeeded to the throne in February 1952, at the age of 27, following the death of her father, King George VI.

Following her death, ceremonies and vigils took place across the UK in honour of her life and work. Her state funeral was held on Monday September 19 as crowds of mourners lined the streets of London.

Following the funeral at Westminster Abbey, the Queen’s coffin was taken to Windsor Castle for a final ceremony. She was then laid to rest in private at St George’s Chapel.

Almost 30 million people in the UK were thought to have watched the proceedings take place on TV.
