Queen Elizabeth died on Thursday at the age of 96. The queen’s closest family members had rushed to be at her bedside at Balmoral, a private residence set among thousands of acres in the Scottish Highlands. Her body is expected to remain there initially before being taken Sunday to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. After Elizabeth’s death, her eldest son Charles became the king. Aged 73, he is the oldest monarch yet to ascend the throne. Both mother and son shared a special bond. Charles used to escort his mother to the throne for one of her royal duties: Opening Parliament every year.
Here’s a look at their most memorable images:

But Charles became the first royal to be born without a witness. According to royal historian Kate Williams, the Queen’s father, George VI, “put an end” to that tradition. (Picture credit: Getty)
