The Royal Family’s website received a major facelift following the news of the tragic death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Website royal.uk honored the late monarch by dedicating its entire homepage to the Queen, who reigned for 70 years. The page featured a black background with bold white lettering reading “Queen Elizabeth II” and her years on earth “1926-2022.” The site also featured a throwback photo of Queen Elizabeth wearing a crown. As they kept scrolling, they also shared a somber news: “The Queen died peacefully in Balmoral this afternoon, 2022.
It seems like website developers are working on other pages of the site right now as you can’t navigate beyond the home page. They’ve removed all other aspects of the site for now, presumably as they release more about the Queen’s life and death. “The Royal Family’s official website is temporarily unavailable while appropriate changes are made,” reads the bottom of the page.
On September 8, a Buckingham Palace spokesman shared news about Queen Elizabeth’s health. “Following a further examination this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned about Her Majesty’s health and have recommended that she remain under medical supervision,” they said via PBS. Just hours after the initial report that the Queen was in poor health, the Palace and Prince Charles issued statements confirming the Queen had died at the age of 96.
