The Queen has died at Scotland’s Balmoral Castle at the age of 96. During her more than 70 years on the throne, the longest reign of any British monarch, she was Queen of Canada and 14 other countries. She died surrounded by the Royal Family, who were called to Balmoral several days after doctors put her under medical care.
