One year has passed since the world bid farewell to Queen Elizabeth II, a remarkable monarch who left an indelible mark on history. On September 8th last year, her serene passing at Balmoral ushered in a new era, with King Charles ascending to the throne.

Today, the Royal Family joins the world in commemorating the first anniversary of her passing, paying homage to her enduring legacy. The official Instagram account of the British Royal Family has become a virtual canvas for this heartfelt tribute.

A rare and timeless portrait of Queen Elizabeth from the 1960s graces their feed, capturing her radiant smile as she sits gracefully at Buckingham Palace. The caption is simple yet profound: "In loving and everlasting memory, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 21st April 1926 – 8th September 2022."

King Charles' Touching Tribute

In a deeply personal moment, King Charles shared a voice note that resonates with affection and gratitude for his late mother.

The poignant message accompanies a portrait of a young Elizabeth adorned in her ceremonial robes. In his own words, the monarch reflects, "In marking the first anniversary of Her late Majesty’s death and my Accession, we recall with great affection her long life, devoted service, and all she meant to so many of us.

I am deeply grateful, too, for the love and support that has been shown to my wife and myself during this year as we do our utmost to be of service to you all." Queen Elizabeth II holds a unique place in history as the longest-reigning monarch in British history, dedicating 70 years of her life to her nation.

Her peaceful passing at Balmoral marked the end of an era and the dawn of a new one as Charles assumed the throne. To mark this solemn occasion, King Charles and Queen Camilla have retreated to their Balmoral estate, where they will privately commemorate the event.

In a touching tribute, Prince William and Kate Middleton embark on an emotional pilgrimage to a cathedral in Wales, a place of significance for the late Queen, to honor her memory on this poignant anniversary. As the world remembers Queen Elizabeth II, her enduring impact on the monarchy and her people remains a testament to a life well-lived and a legacy that will continue to inspire generations to come.
