The cause of Queen Elizabeth II’s death may be revealed next week, after the end of the royal mourning period. The Queen’s death was announced to the public at 6:30 p.m. m. on Thursday, September 8. Very limited details of the circumstances surrounding the Queen’s death have been revealed so far.
Registration of deaths in Scotland is compulsory under the Registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages (Scotland) Act 1965.
This law states that “the death of every person who dies in Scotland” must be recorded.
This includes submitting a death certificate to a registrar, which must be done within seven days of the occurrence of death.
If the Queen had died in England, there would be no requirement to publish an official cause of death because the Registration Act of 1836 does not apply to monarchs.
In Scotland, doctors must report all deaths that are “sudden, suspicious, accidental or unexplained” to the Crown Office.
But according to the Scottish Daily Express, the Crown Office in Edinburgh said her death had not been mentioned because “it was not a necessary death”.
The Queen’s funeral took place on Monday 19 September at Westminster Abbey in London.
Her coffin was carried in procession from Scotland to London.
The service, led by the Most Reverend Dr. David Hoyle Dean of Westminster, began at 11 a.m.
The sermon was delivered by the Right Reverend and Right Honorable Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury.
The Queen’s state funeral was watched by more than 28 million people on 50 UK channels.
It was followed by a private burial service in Windsor, attended by members of the family.
After the funeral, the Queen’s coffin traveled in procession from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch, also known as Constitution Arch, which was built as an original entrance to Buckingham Palace and stands between Hyde Corners. Park and Green Park.
From there the coffin traveled to Windsor, where the pledge service was held at St George’s Chapel.
Queen Elizabeth II was buried in the King George VI Memorial Chapel, a small annex to the main chapel in Windsor.
She was buried alongside her father, George VI, the Queen Mother, and her sister, Princess Margaret.
Prince Philip was previously in the Royal Vault, but was moved to lie next to his wife in the chapel.
