Her Majesty died in the afternoon of Thursday, September 8, hours after the palace shared a statement about the monarch's rapidly declining health. Charles immediately became King upon his mom's passing and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, took on the title of Queen Consort.

The late royal's grandchild Prince Harry unfortunately did not get to say goodbye to his grandmother, as he was still on the plane over to see her when she took her last breathe. His wife, Meghan Markle, was not invited to the join the royal family in their goodbye.

Despite tension following Harry and Meghan's 2020 Megxit, the royal family put their differences aside to honor the queen, who served 70 years on the throne.
