Surprisingly, this isn’t Queen Elizabeth’s first friendship with a bear. As part of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration earlier this year, Her Majesty enjoyed tea with Paddington Bear. The pair bonded over their love of marmalade sandwiches.

Thank you Ma’am, for everything.

Queen Elizabeth II’s family traveled to Scotland to be by her side at Balmoral as her health declined. According to the BBC, all four of her children were with her before she passed, including Prince Andrew, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, and Prince Charles.

Prince William traveled to Scotland while his wife Kate stayed at the Windsor estate. Prince Harry also joined the declining monarch at Balmoral, though his wife Meghan allegedly stayed behind.

Prince Charles will now assume the role of King Charles III. Camilla, whom he married after the death of Princess Diana, will become Queen Consort.

The Queen just appointed Prime Minister Liz Truss on Tuesday. She said the long-reigning sovereign “provided us with the stability and strength that we needed.”
