Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch in the United Kingdom’s history, died aged 96 on September 8, 2022.

Her Majesty died “peacefully” at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, according to Buckingham Palace.

Her son, now to be known as King Charles III, will now ascend to the throne, making Prince William the new heir to the UK throne.

This year, Queen Elizabeth became the first-ever British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne.

Throughout her seven decades on the throne, Her Majesty maintained a close relationship with the GCC countries, having visited the region on many occasions.
