She was one of the country's favourite members of the Royal family and will be greatly missed.
You can e-mail us your tribute to the Queen Mother here.
The Queen Mother represented history for the last century. She was a people person and always took a keen interest in other people no matter who they were. She was a strong queen and supportive queen mother.

She was a kind woman even though I didn't know her and we will all miss her a lot. The world is not what it was when she was alive.
Abbie, 12, Cradley
I think that the Queen Mother was marvellous to live to 101 but her death didn't come as a shock to me. It would have to happen sooner or later. I'm upset for the Royal Family.
Sophie, 10, Milton Keynes
Sorry, but the Queen Mother did not help the country for the last 20 odd years. She was an old woman and I can not see what all the fuss is about. When my great aunt died at 102 there wasn't thousands of sad letters pouring in.

The Queen Mother was a beautiful, caring, lovely and wonderful woman. She will be sadly missed. She was loved by everyone. May she rest in peace and be happy.

The Queen Mother's death is a sad event indeed, but I'm glad she lived a long, full life and died peacefully. She will be greatly missed, I'm sure.
Cassidy, 14, New York City
She lived for a long time and was very frail so maybe it was getting too difficult for her. At least it wasn't a painful death.
Anna, 13, Cambridge
I think the Queen Mother was a respectful lady who will be missed dearly across the world. My thoughts go to the Queen at this time.
Elizabeth, 12, Stoke-on-Trent
She will be missed but it's good she died in her sleep because she was suffering quite a lot and by dying in her sleep was feeling no pain

The Queen Mother was sound, she treated people with respect, she never acted superior to anyone. Rest in peace.

The Queen Mother was a lovely lady but I think people should leave her to rest in peace and not carry on about it like they did with Diana.
