Using her full name Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, the certificate lists the late Queen as “widow” following the death of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, in April 2021.
Her occupation was simply: “Her Majesty the Queen.”
The cause of death is recorded as “old age”, at Balmoral Castle.
Her “usual address” was listed as Windsor Castle, where she moved during the Covid-19 pandemic and considered staying at home for the last few years of her reign.
The document is signed by “Anne”, the Princess Royal, who is named as an “informant” on the document and would have notified the local registrar of her mother’s death.
The princess, who accompanied her mother’s coffin as it traveled from Balmoral to London via Edinburgh, said afterwards: “I was lucky to share the last 24 hours of my dear mother’s life.”
The document registers the certified registered doctor as Dr. Douglas James Allan Glass, a local GP who held the title of Apothecary to the Queen.
The certificate sheds further light on the events of the day of the late Queen’s death, with Buckingham Palace confirming at 12.34 that the doctors were concerned about her health and that she was “comfortable” under their supervision.
