Queen Elizabeth's death certificate: What it says

Queen Elizabeth II died of "old age" at 3.10 pm (1410 GMT) on September 8, according to her death certificate.

Her death's news was announced to the world nearly three-and-a-half hours later.

The certificate was released on September 29 by the National Records of Scotland.

It stated that her death was registered on September 16 by her daughter Princess Anne.

Under the section marked "occupation", it read: "Her Majesty The Queen".

In a statement issued by Buckingham Palace on September 13, Anne was present with the Queen during the last 24 hours of her life.

However, the queen's two younger sons, Princes Andrew and Edward, were not able to make it to the castle in time.

The 96-year-old longest-serving monarch in British history passed at her Balmoral Castle estate in the Scottish Highlands.

Meanwhile, King Charles III has been named the new monarch of Britain.
