How to watch live British news coverage of the queen’s death
As the news broke Thursday that Queen Elizabeth II had been placed under medical supervision and subsequently died at age 96, members of the royal family descended on the Windsors’ summer residence in Scotland. Given the gravity of the news — the first death of a British monarch since 1952, when Elizabeth’s father, George VI, died — U.K. outlets are already moving to provide every detail of the death, the response, and plans for the funeral and King Charles’ coronation.
