Queen Elizabeth II to be laid to rest at historic state funeral
Following her official funeral, Queen Elizabeth II will be laid to rest with Prince Philip at the St. George's Chapel.
World leaders have gathered in London to attend the state funeral of late Queen Elizabeth II which is all set to take place today.
Following her official funeral, Queen Elizabeth II will be laid to rest with Prince Philip at the St. George’s Chapel. Her parents were also buried in the tiny chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
Prince Philip’s casket was lowered into the Royal Vault beneath St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle after the conclusion of his funeral service in April 2021. After a committal service, the Queen will briefly join her husband in the vault.
After the Queen’s commitment service, the Royal family will depart St. George’s Chapel but will later return for a private burial service. Prince Philip’s casket will be carried next to that of the late monarch to be buried with her. Prince Philip’s casket has been kept in a Royal vault so that he might be buried with his wife.
Around 500 world leaders, including US President Joe Biden, President Droupadi Murmu have gathered in London to bid a final farewell to the Queen at the state funeral of inimitable pageantry.
Later in the afternoon, the oak coffin covered in the Royal Standard flag with the Imperial State Crown on top, will be placed on a gun carriage and pulled by naval personnel to Westminster Abbey for her funeral.
Around 200 pipers and drummers will accompany the coffin as it is carried on the gun carriage to Westminster Abbey by King Charles, his siblings, his sons Princes William and Harry, and other members of the Windsor family. The Abbey’s tenor bell rang 96 times today.
The monarch’s funeral, which has never been televised before, is anticipated to be watched by tens of millions both in Britain and overseas. The Last Post trumpet salute will mark the conclusion before the country and the church observe a two-minute silence.
