Queen Elizabeth II has died at the age of 96 after seven decades on the throne.

The Royal Family said in a statement: "The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

Our deepest condolences to the British Royal Family as we remember Her Majesty The Queen's incredible 70-year reign and commitment to service.

Our thoughts go to all who loved her.

Queen Elizabeth II
