Now, his death certificate has been released. The Telegraph reports that his death certificate said “old age” was the official cause of his death. His death was certified by Sir Huw Thomas, the head of the royal medical household and official doctor of the royal couple since 2014.

The term “old age” may be used on a death certificate if the doctor has been caring for the patient over an extended period of time, and if the patient is over the age of 80 at the time of death.

If you missed it, the Queen left a heartbreaking note on her husband’s funeral casket.
