September 8, 2022, marked a significant loss for the world with the death of Queen Elizabeth II. However, the greatest impact was felt by her family, the Royal Family. Now, one year later, King Charles is taking a moment to remember his mother with heartfelt words.
Queen Elizabeth II’s reign as the United Kingdom’s longest-serving monarch came to an end at the age of 96, a result of her advanced age. Buckingham Palace released a statement on the day of her passing, announcing that “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.”
Ten days later, on September 19, 2022, the Queen’s funeral took place at Westminster Abbey, followed by a procession to Wellington Arch with 3,000 military personnel in attendance.
The Queen is survived by her four children: King Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward. Additionally, she has right grandchildren, including Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as 13 great-grandchildren. Prince Philip, the Queen’s husband of 74 years, had passed away on April 9, 2021, before her. His death was also a profound loss for the Royal Family.
On the one-year anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s passing, King Charles plans to privately spend time at Balmoral Arms. However, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, are expected to make a public appearance at St David’s Cathedral.
In a statement commemorating the first anniversary of his mother’s death and his own Accession, King Charles expressed deep affection for her long life, devoted service, and what she meant to many. He also expressed gratitude for the love and support he and his wife, Queen Camilla, have received during this year as they strive to serve the people.
It is heartwarming to see King Charles pay tribute to his mother even a year after her passing. Undoubtedly, many people deeply miss Queen Elizabeth.
