How the Prime Minister was informed about the Queen († 96). |

The news of the death came at 5:30 p.m

Queen Elizabeth II is dead. The Queen of England died at the age of 96. The news was announced by the palace on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. (German time). She died in the presence of her family and medical team at her country estate, Balmoral Castle.

On Thursday afternoon, the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss (47) was holding a session in the House of Commons in London. As Downing Street has now confirmed, Truss was informed directly of the death of the Queen at 4.30 p.m. local time (5.30 p.m. German time)!

A moment that changed the world. The people got the message from the government meeting that something bad must have happened – notes were passed around, there was excited whispering. At first, however, it was only said that the politicians were informed about the deteriorating state of health of the monarch.

In truth, her death was announced to an inner circle that afternoon. Truss was told the news by Cabinet Secretary Simon Case. Two hours before the public found out.

Two days earlier, Liz Truss and the Queen had met. Queen Elizabeth II († 96) looked smiling but frighteningly gaunt and fragile when she commissioned the new British Prime Minister to form a government on Tuesday (September 6). A photo shows how the 96-year-old monarch extended her delicate hand to the conservative politician, leaning on a stick.

It should be the Queen’s last official date.

The Queen’s doctors were concerned about the state of health of the 96-year-old monarch, it said in an official statement on Thursday afternoon (September 8th). Her children and grandchildren immediately make their way to her side. Worrying scenes, the whole world feared for the great queen. Charles, now king, made it to his mother’s deathbed in time. Her grandsons William and Harry were late.

The first hint that something might have happened was felt in the House of Commons like this: Minister for Government Relations, Nadhim Zahawi, suddenly rushed into the Chamber, sat down next to the newly appointed Prime Minister late Thursday afternoon and spoke urgently to her.

Liz Truss was sitting in the front pew of the House of Commons when THE notes on the Queen and her health were handed out. A piece of writing that interrupted the planned event.

Truss then left the British House of Commons directly while the documents were distributed to other members of Parliament.

The Prime Minister publicly announced shortly afterwards that the whole country was “deeply concerned” by the news from the Queen. “My thoughts – and the thoughts of everyone in the UK – are now with Her Majesty The Queen and her family,” Truss wrote on Twitter.

On Thursday evening, when the monarch’s death was officially announced by the palace at 7.30 p.m. German time, Prime Minister Truss said: The Queen’s death was a “shock for the nation”. She called the Queen “the rock on which modern Britain was built”.
