The White House expressed deep sympathies Thursday at the death of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, noting she was the leader of one of the United States’ strongest allies.

“Our hearts and our thoughts go to the family members of the queen (and) to the people of the United Kingdom,” said White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre, minutes after the death of the 96-year-old sovereign was announced.
