President Joko Widodo conveyed his sympathies on the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

“I am extremely saddened by the death (of) Monarch Elizabeth II, a much admired and cherished queen,” President Jokowi said on Friday via his official Twitter account @jokowi.

On Friday, Queen Elizabeth II died at Balmoral Palace in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Her health deteriorated following treatment in October 2021.

“My warmest sympathies to the Royal Family, the government, and the people of the United Kingdom,” he wrote.

Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning queen in British history, died peacefully at Balmoral Palace at the age of 96.

The royal family revealed on Thursday, September 8, that doctors were concerned about the Queen’s health and had placed her under medical observation.

Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II’s spouse, died in April 2021 at the age of 99.

They had been married for more than seven decades and had four children: Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward.

Queen Elizabeth II is the most traveled head of state and the longest-married monarch in British history.

She reigned Britain for the longest period of time of any monarch in the country’s history, becoming a greatly loved and revered person during her decades of reign.

The Queen will have reigned on the throne for 70 years on February 6, 2022, and will honor the milestone with a Platinum Jubilee in June.

Elizabeth left behind four children, eight grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren. After her death, her eldest son, Charles, would be the next monarch to be crowned.

Prince Harry, Prince William, Prince Andrew, and others visited the Queen at Balmoral Palace in Scotland.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Charles, the Queen’s eldest son, became King of the United Kingdom and the British Commonwealth, and his wife Camilla Parker Bowles became Queen Consort.
