Queen Elizabeth II, the UK's longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral, aged 96, after a 70-year reign.

Her family gathered at Balmoral, her Scottish estate after concerns grew about her health earlier today. The Queen came to the throne in 1952. 

With the Queen's passing, her eldest son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, will lead the country in mourning as the new King and head of state for 14 Commonwealth realms.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: "The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.

"The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

All the Queen's children travelled to Balmoral, near Aberdeen, after doctors placed the Queen under medical supervision.

Her grandson, Prince William, was also there, with brother, Prince Harry, on his way.

Elizabeth II was the Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms. Elizabeth was born in Mayfair, London, on 21 April 1926, as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York. Her father acceded to the throne in 1936 upon the abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII, making Elizabeth the heir presumptive.
