Queen Elizabeth II died Thursday at age 96, concluding a 70-year reign that covered Britain’s recovery from World War II, the final decline of the empire, Margaret Thatcher’s battles with trade unions, the formation of the European Union and the U.K.‘s exit from it, and the Covid pandemic. Elizabeth’s passing marks a new era of uncertainty for Britain. Just days before her death, the queen met with a new prime minister, Liz Truss, who is tasked with taming the most challenging economy the nation has encountered in years. The pound hit a 37-year low this week, and Truss’s government is aiming to alleviate the country’s cost-of-living crisis with caps on energy bills. It’ll be tough medicine, and Elizabeth won’t be there to rally Britons’ morale. That’s up to King Charles III now.

The Emmys are Monday, and Apple TV+ is a contender for several major awards. The streaming service is under three years old, and it doesn’t churn out the volume of content that, say, Netflix or HBO do. But with buzzy, critically acclaimed shows like “Ted Lasso” and “Severance,” Apple (AAPL), already the elite personal gadget maker, is trying to stake its claim as a prestige player in streaming. Apple TV+ made showbiz Hollywood history earlier this year when its “Coda” became the first streaming service release to win Best Picture at the Oscars.

U.S. futures are higher, European stocks are higher and Asian markets ended higher.
