This evening, Buckingham Palace made the following announcement:
The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.
Here at Rossall, we reflect upon the occasion of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, our thoughts and prayers are with the royal family as we, her loyal subjects, come to terms with her passing. The profound significance of this time transcends the limitations of words. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
