PRESIDENT Joko Widodo (Jokowi) expressed his condolences over the passing away of Queen Elizabeth II and said I am deeply saddened by the passing (away) of Queen Elizabeth II, a widely admired and beloved queen,” President Jokowi stated through his official Twitter account @jokowi on Friday (9/9).

Queen Elizabeth II breathed her last at Balmoral Palace, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, on Friday. Her health condition worsened after being treated in October 2021.

“My deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family, the government, and the people of the UK,” he wrote.

Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, died peacefully at the age of 96 at Balmoral Palace. On Thursday morning, September 8, the royal family announced that doctors were concerned about the Queen’s health and put her under medical supervision.

Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, Prince Philip, died in April 2021 at the age of 99. The two had been married for over seven decades, and together they have four children: Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward.

Queen Elizabeth II is Britain’s most-traveled head of state and Britain’s longest-married queen. She ruled Britain for longer than any other monarch in the country’s history, becoming a much loved and respected figure during her time of reigning for decades.

The Queen had sat on the throne for 70 years on February 6, 2022, celebrating with a Platinum Jubilee in June to mark the occasion. Elizabeth was survived by four children, eight grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren. Her eldest son, Charles, aged 73, would be next to be crowned for the throne after her death.

Prince Harry, Prince William, Prince Andrew, and others went to Balmoral Palace in Scotland to be with the Queen. After Queen Elizabeth II’s death, the Queen’s eldest son, Charles, became King of Great Britain and the British Commonwealth, and his wife Camilla Parker Bowles became Queen Consort. [antaranew]
