Elizabeth’s lengthy reign as the queen has come to an end. She was crowned in 1952 at the age of 26 and has since become the longest-reigning monarch in English history. Liz Truss, the most recent prime minister, was elected this month.
Plans for the queen’s succession are extensive and complex. Charles, her eldest son, will ascend to the throne later this month, following a 10-day mourning period. The queen’s death marks the end of an era, and she will be greatly missed but her legacy will live on forever.
