The Inscription On The Queen's Resting Place Reads

The late monarch was laid to
rest in the King George VI memorial chapel alongside her beloved husband, Prince
Philip, and her family, King George VI, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret.

Following her burial, the
ledger stone that lay next to the tomb was updated and now carries their
names as well as the year they were born and the year they died.

The full stone now
reads: “George VI 1895-1952,” followed by “Elizabeth
1900-2002.” There is then a metal garter star before the final two names:
“Elizabeth II 1926-2022” and “Philip 1921-2021.”

During their lives, all four
royals were members of the Order of the Garter, the highest honour that can be
given. It is limited to only the monarch, Prince of Wales and 24 other living
members.

Although the Queen’s sister
Margaret is buried alongside them her name doesn’t feature on the ledger
stone as her ashes are interred inside the wall.

Before the Queen was buried in
the memorial chapel, Philip’s body lay in the Royal Vault. It was moved there
ahead of the funeral so that the Queen could lie next to him.

Windsor Castle is currently
closed to the public, and it is expected to reopen on 29 September.

Although the national mourning
period has concluded, the royal family is expected to continue mourning for
a further seven days.

King Charles III, the Queen
Consort and other members of the royal family will observe the mourning period
along with royal household staff, representatives of the royal household on
official duties, together with troops committed to royal duties, which means we
are unlikely to see them carry out any public engagements in the coming days.
