Despite not appearing at several events in recent months due to ongoing mobility issues, the Queen performed one final duty on September 6 when she met Britain’s new Prime Minister, Liz Truss, in Balmoral.

Truss is the 56th British Prime Minister and the third female leader.

In a statement on social media, Truss referred to the Queen as “the rock on which modern Britain was built”.

“Our country has grown and prospered under their rule,” she wrote.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor has been Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 Commonwealth kingdoms, including Australia, since her reign began in February 1952.

She will be succeeded by her son Charles, which should renew the Republican debate in Australia.

His coronation is expected to take place next year.
