Our hearts are broken: How global media reported death of Queen Elizabeth II

While the front pages of the United Kingdom’s newspapers commemorated a sombre day for the country following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, other global media houses also reworked their homepages to pay their tributes.

The 96-year-old longest serving monarch in British history died in Scotland after battling health problems since last October, the Royal Family announced on Thursday.

Consequently, the crown passed to her son and heir, King Charles III.

In recent months, the Queen appeared visibly frail and had a series of withdrawals from public engagements. She had taken to walking with a stick and was also seen touring the Chelsea Flower Show in a motorised buggy.

The front pages of UK newspapers have made it a point to serve as a lasting memory of the day.

The Sun replaced its usual red top with regal purple and went with the headline “We loved you Ma’am”
