Buckingham Palace has announced the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, at the age of 96. She died at her favourite residence, Balmoral Castle. Queen Elizabeth was Britain's longest reigning monarch, coming to the throne at the age of 25 following the death of her father, King George VI, in February 1952.

God and the Soldier, all men adore, In time of danger and not before.
When the danger is passed and all things righted, God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.
