Despite the fact that the health of Queen had been declining for some time, her abrupt death on September 8, 2022, startled many royal lovers and caught her closest relatives off guard.
“Queen Elizabeth lived a full life.”
Fate fulfilled a promise. Let us begin by reviewing Queen Elizabeth’s medical background. The long-reigning monarch has been slacking off on numerous public commitments, most notably by skipping her own Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June of this year.
Many of the Queen’s plans would subsequently be altered as a consequence of her mobility issues, culminating in her historic decision to name new Prime Minister Liz Truss in Balmoral rather than Buckingham Palace for the first time ever.
“I have just accepted Her Majesty the Queen’s generous invitation to form a new administration.” Days later, word came that the 96-year-old had died in Scotland. Her health problems may have been exacerbated by the tragic loss of her husband, Prince Philip, barely a year and a half before, as well as a later battle with COVID.
Although there had been hours of speculation that the Queen’s health was in grave jeopardy, Liz Truss had intimated as much on Twitter prior to the devastating news of her death. The Queen’s death was first reported in a tweet about 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
Given that she had spent a “joyful” supper with the then-Prince of Wales the night before the monarchy would change forever, Today anchor Jenna Bush Hager believes the King and Queen consort were taken aback by how swiftly the Queen became ill.
Bush Hager had traveled to the United Kingdom to meet with Camilla, but the meeting never took place. Camilla was supposed to meet with her at 1:30 p.m. the day after her dinner with Charles, according to a TV personality on Today.
Bush Hager’s team was instructed to “The future King answered a critical phone call while engaged in what is now known to be an anxious chat about the Queen’s health. They don’t take helicopters lightly, so hearing one scared us.
In an interview with the Royal Beat, Newsweek’s Chief Royal Correspondent Jack Royston repeated Bush Hager’s account of Camilla’s interview location being disturbed on September 8 by a storm.
And it happened at 12:30 p.m., which was precisely the time given. So they didn’t wait an hour or two [before informing the rest of the world], Royston continued.
The King then flew to Balmoral, where only he, Camilla, and his sister Princess Anne are thought to have seen the Queen before she died.
Prince William and Prince Harry famously put everything on hold to travel to Balmoral, but they arrived too late to say good-bye. We may never be able to ascertain the true reason for the Queen’s death. May heavenly flights take you to sleep.
