Queen’s funeral: Elizabeth II laid to rest alongside husband, royal family announces

Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest reigning monarch, has been buried in the King George VI Memorial Chapel at St George’s chapel, Windsor Castle, in a small private ceremony attended by family.

The Queen was buried alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, at the King George VI Memorial Chapel at Windsor Castle, an announcement on the royal family’s official website said.

“The Queen was buried together with the Duke of Edinburgh, at The King George VI Memorial Chapel,” the statement said.

Earlier on Monday 2,000 guests including heads of state gathered in Westminster Abbey for her funeral.
The coffin was then taken to Wellington Arch in a procession featuring members of the armed forces and their bands.

The Queen’s children, including King Charles III followed behind the coffin on its journey after it left the abbey. His sons, Prince William and Prince Harry joined them. The Queen’s coffin was later driven to Windsor Castle.

A service of committal was held at St George’ Chapel, where the Queen’s coffin was lowered in to the royal vault and her instruments of rule were placed on the altar.
