Sequel to the passing away of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, on Thursday afternoon, the Buckingham Palace has released an official statement on how departure, saying she died peacefully.
Although many sources presumed her demise might be connected to the COVID-19 infection she was diagnosed of last February, but the assumption was wrong, based on the information reportedly obtained from a medical expert, Dr Deb Cohen-Jones.
The official statement from Dr Cohen-Jones, says the bruises on the late Queen Elizabeth’s hands offer major insight into her death, which is a symptom of peripheral vascular disease.
Dr Cohen-Jones, who claimed to have observed the late Queens hands from photographs taken during her last official event on Tuesday, when she met with the UK’s new Prime Minister, Elizabeth Truss, said the photographs were real indicators of the Queen’s deteriorating health.
He was quoted telling the Daily Mail that: “It looks like there is possibly evidence of peripheral vascular disease. It’s a blood circulation disorder that causes the blood vessels outside of your heart and brain to narrow, block, or spasm.”
“It can sometimes result in heart failure,” he even went on to allege.
“If your peripheral circulation is that poor, organs aren’t receiving a good blood supply. It can be a sign of multi-organ failure.”
The Queen’s Peaceful Passing Away
According to Buckingham Palace’s official report, the late monarch passed away “peacefully” in her home in Balmoral Castle, Scotland, on the afternoon of 8 September 2022.
It read, “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”
The Monarch’s Several Health Challenges
Reports has it that the late monarch started exhibiting signs of declining health months after the death of her husband Prince Philip in April 2021.
But Buckingham Palace took the extraordinary step of releasing a statement on Thursday morning, saying doctors were “concerned for Her Majesty’s health and recommended she remain under medical supervision”.
It was reported that the Queen postponed several official functions such as the Privy Council meeting, one of the most important events on her calendar, after doctors ordered her to rest.
With increasing regularity over the past few months, she cancelled more function,as her health worsened.
However, on Tuesday, she met outgoing UK Prime Minister, and his replacement Liz Truss, at Balmoral, instead of meeting them in London, as is custom, due to her poor health. Despite this, she appeared smiling and well at the meeting.
Prior to that, it was in the news that she missed the official church service at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations in early June, after complaining of discomfort.
In February, the monarch cancelled planned virtual engagements due to “mild” coronavirus symptoms, Buckingham Palace confirmed.
“As Her Majesty is still experiencing mild cold-like symptoms she has decided not to undertake her planned virtual engagements today, but will continue with light duties,” said a palace spokesman.
The Queen tested positive for the virus months after mysterious health problems were not disclosed by Buckingham Palace late last year.
