Queen Elizabeth II's cause of death has been revealed in her official death certificate.

As reported by Sky News, the Queen's death certificate - which was registered in Aberdeenshire on September 16th - has confirmed that the 96-year-old monarch died of old age.

The death certificate also reveals that Queen Elizabeth II died at 15:10 on September 8 - this is more than three hours before the heartbreaking news was broken to the public.

The extract can be seen in the tweet below:

Queen Elizabeth II's passed away on Setpember 8, with Buckingham Palace breaking the news in a statement that read: "The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon."

The eldest daughter of King George VI and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the late Queen would become the longest-reigning British monarch in history, ascending to the throne at the age of 25.

On February 6, 1952, Her Royal Highness ascended to the throne following the death of her father. She was 27 years old when she was coronated on June 2, 1953.

Initially, she was not born to be a queen. In fact, her father, whose given name was Albert Frederick Arthur George, became king only after his older brother King Edward VIII abdicated the throne to marry an American woman, Wallis Simpson.

As she prepared to take over the throne before the King's death, the Queen's marriage to her distant cousin Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten of the Royal Navy was announced in 1947.

The marriage took place in Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947, and on the eve of the wedding, her father granted the bridegroom the titles of Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth, and Baron Greenwich.

They took residence at Clarence House in London and had their first child, Prince Charles (Charles Philip Arthur George), who was born on November 14, 1948, at Buckingham Palace.

Within their marriage, the royal couple had other children: Princess Anne, born August 15, 1950, Prince Andrew (Andrew Albert Christian Edward), born February 19, 1960, and Prince Edward (Edward Anthony Richard Louis), born March 10, 1964.

After the summer of 1951, King George VI's health entered into a serious decline, and the Queen - who was a princess at the time - began her royal obligations by representing him at the Trooping the Colour and on various other state occasions.

After the King's death, Her Majesty moved into Buckingham Palace and undertook the routine duties of the sovereign after three months of mourning. She carried out her first state opening of Parliament on November 4, 1952.

Her coronation was held at Westminster Abbey on June 2, 1953, and decades later, she became an important figurehead for the United Kingdom and a much-respected icon across the globe.

Last year, the Royal Family was rocked by the death of Prince Philip at the age of 99 - bringing an end to their 73-year marriage.

The Queen became the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee on February 6, 2022, which included four days of celebrations and an extended bank holiday to mark 70 years of service to the British people.

During a weekend of celebrations, she put smiles on millions of faces when she appeared alongside Paddington Bear for a playful sketch.

Following the momentous occasion, the Queen said in a statement: "When it comes to how to mark seventy years as your Queen, there is no guidebook to follow. It really is a first. But I have been humbled and deeply touched that so many people have taken to the streets to celebrate my Platinum Jubilee.

"While I may not have attended every event in person, my heart has been with you all; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family."

One of the Queen's final duties was to appoint Liz Truss the new UK prime minister, just two days before her passing.

The day after her death, her eldest son - now King Charles III - said in his first national address: "I speak to you today with feelings of profound sorrow.

"Throughout her life, Her Majesty the Queen, my beloved mother, was an inspiration and example to me and to all my family.

"We owe her the most heartfelt debt any family could owe to their mother, for her love, affection, guidance, and example."

Addressing the great change his mother saw throughout her life, King Charles III said: "When The Queen came to the throne, Britain and the world were still coping with the privations and aftermath of the Second World War, and still living by the conventions of earlier times.

"In the course of the last 70 years we have seen our society become one of many cultures and many faiths.

"The institutions of the State have changed in turn. But, through all changes and challenges, our nation and the wider family of Realms - of whose talents, traditions and achievements I am so inexpressibly proud - have prospered and flourished.

"Our values have remained, and must remain, constant. The role and the duties of Monarchy also remain, as does the Sovereign's particular relationship and responsibility towards the Church of England - the Church in which my own faith is so deeply rooted."
