Elizabeth’s public appearances had become rarer in the months since she spent an unscheduled night in a hospital in October 2021.

The new leader was the 15th prime minister of her reign, which started with Winston Churchill in 1952.

Elizabeth’s body is expected to remain at Balmoral before being taken to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh on Sunday, Sept. 11.

From the Scottish capital, her coffin is due to travel to London on Tuesday, Sept. 13, to lie in state for several days.
