Sadly the Queen of England passed away on September 8, 2022. Everyone is heartbroken by the news of this.

A bit about Queen Elizabeth: She was born on April 21, 1926.  She was crowned on June 2, 19 53. She enjoyed reading mysteries and working on crossword puzzles. She even liked to watch wrestling on TV. When she was crowned and officially became the Queen, she was only 25 years old. She first met her husband Philip when she was 13 and immediately fell in love with him. Her father, George the VI, was not fond of him though. This is because he thought Prince Philip had a pretty rough personality.

How did she pass away?: No one really knows how she passed away. It was said that she died peacefully in Balmoral. Maybe it was old age or a type of condition.
