September 19, 2022

Buckingham Palace released a never-before-seen portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. It's the last official photo of the queen's 70-year reign. Her magnificent diamond and aquamarine brooches held a special significance because they were a gift from her father. There's also new information about her final days. At 96 years old, she was having difficulty getting up and down stairs. However, she reportedly remained "alert and chatty" almost until the end.
