Queen Elizabeth II Official Death Reason Revealed, Says Report
The cause of death of the late Queen Elizabeth was kept secret during the period of national mourning but is set to be revealed soon, according to the National Records of Scotland (NRS).
It comes just a week after NRS declined to comment on the cause of death.
For the uninitiated, although national mourning ended Tuesday, this week’s actual mourning will continue until next week until 8 am.
Information on the cause of the monarch’s death would be announced once Scotland had closed cases under the Birth, Death and Marriage Registrations (Scotland) Act 1965.
It states that “the death of all who die in Scotland” must be recorded. This includes an official death certificate, which must be presented to the registrar within seven days of the death.
This would not have been the case had the Queen died in England, which has no such guarantee or requirement as the Registration Act 1836 carries no weight in matters of a monarchy.
By contrast, Scotland requires all doctors to provide the Crown Office with detailed reports of any death deemed “sudden, suspicious, accidental or unexplained“.
The Scottish Daily Express, on the other hand, noted that the Crown Office in Edinburgh claimed his death was not mentioned because “it wasn’t a death as it should be”.
