When did Queen Elizabeth II Die? One Year Since Her Passing

It has been a year since Queen Elizabeth II, also known as Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, passed away. On September 8, 2022, at 3:10 p.m. local time in Balmoral Castle, Scotland, she peacefully left us at the age of 96. Her Majesty The Queen, as she was known, had been under medical supervision due to concerns about her health.

In the lead-up to her passing, concerns had arisen about her well-being, particularly after she was unable to attend significant events and was seen using a cane indoors. Her health had been under scrutiny, especially since she battled COVID-19 and faced episodic mobility issues.

The official death certificate attributed her passing to “old age,” a term referring to natural causes associated with ageing. Typically, such deaths result from a combination of factors related to age, often involving underlying health conditions.

In October 2021, Queen Elizabeth cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland and was briefly hospitalized, marking her first known health issue since 2017. Doctors advised her to make lifestyle changes, and her schedule was adjusted to accommodate her health.

A back sprain in November 2021 further hindered her public appearances, but she continued her duties as best she could. In February 2022, she contracted COVID-19 but managed to fulfil light duties at Windsor Castle, eventually resuming her virtual engagements.

As the months passed, Queen Elizabeth’s public appearances became increasingly infrequent, and she missed significant events. Easter celebrations in April and the ceremonial opening of Parliament in May were among the occasions she couldn’t attend due to mobility issues.

One year after her passing, we reflect on the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II, a remarkable monarch who left an indelible mark on British history.
