Queen’s cause of death confusion

It’s been exactly three weeks since the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Following her state funeral on 19 September, the royal family entered an official period of mourning, which came to an end earlier this week.

However, there are now questions arising surrounding her passing – most notably, her death certificate.

The Queen died at her home in Balmoral, Scotland – and, as such, requests to see the certificate go through the National Records of Scotland.

The document is a mater of public record and would be expected to reveal the cause of Her Majesty’s death, and when and where she died.

However, the NRS is now being accused of attempting to block the release of any details pertaining to her passing.

According to the Daily Mail, the government department has been accused of being secretive and stopping legitimate attempts to obtain a copy of the certificate.

Had the Queen died in England there would be no need to release an official cause of death since the Registration Act of 1836 does not apply to monarchs.
