Apple Pays Tribute to ‘Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’ on Website [u]

queen elizabeth II

At 10:30 am PT this morning, The Royal Family announced “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” ending her 70-year reign as the longest-serving monarch in history.

On Thursday afternoon, Apple changed the homepage of its U.S. website to pay tribute to “Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II”, sharing a picture taken by Dorothy Wilding back on February 26, 1952, and from the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Apple has yet to make a similar tribute to The Queen on its Canadian website, with Canada being a former Commonwealth nation, unlike the United States. That may change later at some point, but for now, rest in peace to The Queen.

Update Sept. 8, 6:25pm PT: now pays tribute to The Queen as well.
