Buckingham Palace announced that Her Majesty passed away peacefully in her residence at Balmoral yesterday (8 September).
"The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon," a statement read.
"The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."
Now that King Charles III, 73, has ascended to the throne, this is the order in which the other Royals are currently due to succeed him.
The line of Succession is as follows:
1. The Duke of Cambridge - Prince William
2. Prince George of Cambridge
3. Princess Charlotte of Cambridge
4. Prince Louis of Cambridge
5. The Duke of Sussex - Prince Harry
6. Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor
7. Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor
8. The Duke of York - Prince Andrew
9. Princess Beatrice, Mrs. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi
10. Miss Sienna Mapelli Mozzi

12. Master August Brooksbank
13. The Earl of Wessex - Prince Edward
14. Viscount Severn - James Alexander Philip Theo Mountbatten-Windsor

17. Mr. Peter Phillips
18. Miss Savannah Phillips
19. Miss Isla Phillips
20. Mrs. Michael Tindall
21. Miss Mia Tindall

Following the death of his late mother, the new monarch King Charles III said: "The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all my family members.
"We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world."
He added: "During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held."
Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the throne in 1952 at the age of 25.
Her Majesty was the longest reigning British monarch ever and the longest-serving female head of state ever.
The Queen’s final resting place will be the King George VI memorial chapel, an annex to the main chapel – where her mother and father were buried, along with the ashes of her sister, Princess Margaret.
Philip’s coffin will move from the Royal Vault to the memorial chapel to join the Queen’s.
