Around the world, the front pages of Friday’s newspapers have become a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II following her shock passing, with one outlet declaring the “world is crying” in the wake of the news.

Ranging from vintage shots from her childhood to stately portraits of the Queen wearing her crown or one of her trademark hats, publications were united in mourning the long-reigning monarch.

In Germany, popular tabloid Bild declared that “the world is crying for the Queen”, while Dutch broadsheet De Telegraaf called the royal “the Queen in the heart of the world”.

Daily Parisian newspaper Liberation, from French playwright Jean-Paul Sartre, made a play on words with the headline ‘La peine d’Angleterre’ (the pain of England), swapping ‘reine’ (queen) for ‘peine’ (pain).

The French outlet even included a photo of the monarch on the final page, showing the Queen wearing a white fur cloak facing away.

Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully at her Balmoral estate on Thursday, surrounded by family.

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow,” a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said.

Her passing came hours after the Palace issued a statement revealing that doctors were “concerned” for health, prompting family members to rush to Scotland to be with her.
