The Secret Reason Why Prince Phillip Was Not Buried But His Body Kept In The Royal Vault

The world awoke to the devastating news of Prince Phillip's death on April 9th, 2021. The sudden nature of the news and the lack of any clear indication that the man was ready to pass away startled the entire world. He was 99 years old and as some have said, had genuinely completed everything that needed to be done in his lifetime.

He was survived by his devoted wife, Elizabeth II, Her Majesty. They had celebrated both their silver, Gilbert, and sapphire jubilees, which is extremely uncommon, especially in the modern world and modern times, for couples of her caliber.

Only a small number of members of the royal family and a small number of invited guests attended the burial service due to strict respect to the covid19 tradition. Many people are also aware that his body was buried in the Saint George's Chapel's Royal vault in a private ceremony.

The body of Prince George will eventually be moved to the designated burial site, which many people are unaware of, therefore St. George's Chapel will not serve as his last resting place.

The Royal Vault was constructed in 1810 by several Kings, including George III. Prince Margaret, the wife of King George III, was also interred there. Princess Amelia and Queen Charlotte are among the others.

Prince Philip's body was stored at the St. George's Chapel rather than the Royal Burial Ground, which is located in the Frogmore Estate.

In the royal vault, bodies are simply held as they wait to be buried. Only after the passing of Prince Phillip's longtime wife, Queen Elizabeth II, will the body be moved to its final resting place. After the queen passes away, Philip's remains will be brought and interred with his wife at the royal family's official graveyard.

Every member of the royal family is laid to rest in the Frogmore Burial Cemetery. King George VI was finally laid to rest here.

According to royal tradition, the bodies of the husband and wife must be buried together and prominently marked with their names so that they might serve as monuments for a very long time.
