Her death comes just days after she formally appointed Liz Truss as the new Prime Minister with a special audience at Balmoral.

The meeting on September 6 was the first time the Queen has held the event outside of London or Windsor.

She had been moved to Balmoral in her final months amid concerns for her mobility.
