The exact state of her health was not shared, but it was reported that her physicians expressed “concern.”

What was Queen Elizabeth II’s cause of death?
On Thursday, 8 September 2022, the Royal Family’s verified Twitter account confirmed that Queen Elizabeth II passed.
Per the report, it is believed that Queen died a natural death.
“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the brief statement read. “The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
As thousands express their condolences over her death, Jason Lee from Hollywood Unlocked has also become a trending topic. Earlier this year, the blogging giant reported that they had sources who informed them that the Queen was dead. The news quickly reached one end of the earth to the other, but as quick as social media circulated the report, Buckingham Palace stepped in to say that she was alive and well.
When confronted, Lee repeatedly stood by his source until he finally conceded with an apology for the confusion.
