The British Royal House, however, will still keep another week of mourningin such a way that the flags will continue to fly at half-staff at official residences until September 27. During this time, no public events are expected from leading members of the royal family, according to the BBC.

The country tries to recover the pulse after ten days of uninterrupted homage to Elizabeth IIburied on Monday at Windsor Castle, hours after a state funeral held in London, at Westminster Abbey, in the presence of half a thousand international leaders.

The Government estimates that at least 250 thousand people paraded before the coffin of the late queen during the four days that the burning chapel installed in Westminster lasted.

With almost 70 years as queen, Elizabeth II became the longest-ruling monarch than any other in British history. After his death, his eldest son, Carlos, becomes the new king of the United Kingdom.

Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926 in Mayfair, London. She was the first daughter of Albert, Duke of York, second son of George V, and his Duchess, the former Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. In 1930, Queen Margaret, his sister, was born.
