Buckingham Palace says Queen Elizabeth II has died at age 96. The monarch was under medical supervision Thursday as doctorswere “concerned for Her Majesty’s health.”
The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the palace tweeted. “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
The announcement on Thursday comes a day after Queen Elizabeth canceled a meeting of her Privy Council and was told to rest. Earlier Thursday, the palace said the queen was “comfortable” and remained at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, where she spent the summer, and family members canceled long-planned engagements to travel to the Highlands. 
Here’s a timeline of updates from the palace and members of the royal family leading up to the queen’s death.

Queen Elizabeth II to skip beloved Highland Games event due to continuing ‘mobility’ issues
The latest announcement comes a day after Buckingham Palace revealed Queen Elizabeth II postponed a meeting of senior governmental advisers known as the Privy Council after doctors advised her to rest.
The council had been scheduled to meet virtually on Wednesday, a day after the monarch had a full day of activities as she presided over the ceremonial handover power to the new prime minister at her summer residence in Scotland.
Truss would have taken the oath as First Lord of the Treasury, one of her other titles, and new Cabinet ministers would have been sworn in during the session. The meeting will be rescheduled.

The queen’s latest postponement comes days after she decided to skip the Braemar Gathering, a popular Highland Games event she loves and attends every year, as she continues to struggle with issues getting around.
Last week, the monarch also decided to formally appoint Britain’s new prime minister on Tuesday at Balmoral Castle rather than make the more than 800-mile round trip to London for the traditional ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
Her eldest son and heir King Charles, who normally accompanied the monarch to the Highland Games, attended in her stead.
