Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, died at the age of 96 on September 8 at Balmoral Castle, her summer home in the Scottish highlands. The cause of death has been described as “old age” on the death certificate.

The document confirmed that the monarch died at 3:10 pm on September 8 at Balmoral Castle and old age was the only cause of death listed, with no other contributing factors, The Guardian reported.

According to the certificate accessed by the UK publication, the Queen died three hours before the news of her demise was announced by Buckingham Palace. The King, Queen Consort and Princess Royal were at Balmoral because they were already in Scotland undertaking engagements, while other members of the Royal family were still on their way to see her when she breathed her last.

The Queen experienced mobility problems during the final period of her life, used a walking stick regularly in public and withdrew from official duties.
