Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II has died at the age of 96.
At 7.30 PM Hungarian time, Buckingham Palace said in a statement “the Queen passed away peacefully this afternoon”. The statement said the new King Charles, with his wife Camilla, will stay in Balmoral, Scotland, until Thursday and return to London on Friday.
Buckingham Palace announced earlier in the day that Elizabeth II is under medical supervision at her Scottish estate, Balmoral Castle. Following the announcement, Prince Charles travelled there, along with the Queen’s other three children, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Edward, Count of Wessex.
Two days earlier, in a break with tradition, the Queen had appointed the new British Prime Minister, Liz Truss, at Balmoral Castle rather than in London.
The Queen also visited Hungary in 1993. The royal couple was received by President Árpád Göncz. Elisabeth II gave a speech in the Parliament and visited the National Széchényi Library.
