Elizabeth, who took over as queen in February 1952 when she was 25 years old, was the longest-serving monarch in the UK

and the oldest in the world. The queen had been suffering since late last year from what Buckingham Palace called "episodic mobility problems."

She had also been reducing her public appearances and in some cases was represented at events by Charles

and his eldest son Prince William, who now becomes the first in line of succession to the British

throne. Around the Scottish castle where the Queen lived, a group of people began gathering as a way of showing solidarity and wishing the Queen well.

Liz Truss, recently appointed by the Queen herself as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, had said that "the whole country 

is extremely concerned by the news" and wished her well. In addition to her, the Archbishop of 

Canterbury and the Prime Ministers of Scotland, Wales, and Canada also issued messages wishing the Queen well.
