In addition to the cause, the document reveals the official time of death as 3:10 pm on Thursday, September 8.
The Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne, is listed as the informant of her death. Anne previously said in a statement, “I was fortunate to share the last 24 hours of my dearest Mother’s life.”
Buckingham Palace announced the death of Queen Elizabeth at age 96 in an official statement. “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the statement read, referring to the monarch’s Scotland estate where she traditionally spent the late summer months.
Shortly after her passing, her successor and son Prince Charles, who is now King Charles released a statement about the passing of his mother.

“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother,” he continued. “I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”
King Charles concluded, “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.”
