Queen Elizabeth Laid To Rest

Queen's coffin lowered into St George's Chapel vault to lie beside her beloved Philip and parents

The Queen’s casket has been lowered into the Royal Vault in St George’s Chapel, where it will lie with her beloved husband Prince Philip after her crown, orb and sceptre were removed from her coffin so she could descend into her grave 'as a simple Christian soul'.

Her Majesty returned home to Windsor to be reunited for eternity with her husband, father, mother, and sister in the crypt at St George's Chapel to the lament of a lone piper as her 70-year reign came to an end.

With a huge sense of privilege, but also with great sadness, hundreds of soldiers and officers today took part in Her Majesty The Queen’s funeral in London and Windsor.The eyes of the world were upon them as they laid HM Queen Elizabeth II to rest.

Millions watched the funeral on television at home after a public holiday was declared to mark the passing of the queen.
